Two BTR-80's during a winter night operation in Afghanistan

BTR stands for bronyetransportyer which literally means armoured transporter. BTR-80 is an improved version of BTR-70 and it was designed to replace both it and the older BTR-60PB. It was adopted in 1986. It has a slightly longer hull than BTR-70. It has a slightly modified turret as well. It can be found in the games Combat Mission: Afghanistan and Combat Mission: Black Sea.
