The BRDM-2 (Boyevaya Razvedyvatelnaya Dozornaya Mashina, Боевая Разведывательная Дозорная Машина, literally "Combat Reconnaissance/Patrol Vehicle" †) is an amphibious armoured patrol car used by Russia and the former Soviet Union. It was also known under designations BTR-40PB, BTR-40P-2 and GAZ 41-08. This vehicle, like many other Soviet designs, has been exported extensively and is in use in at least 38 countries. It was intended to replace the earlier BRDM-1 with a vehicle that had improved amphibious capabilities and better armament.
In Project Reality, the BRDM-2 is a scout car with anti-infantry capabilities used by the Middle Eastern Coalition, Militia, and Russia factions.
- BRDM-2 Armed
- Basic recon variant, equipped with a 14.5mm KPVT turret and a coaxial PKT machine gun
- BRDM-2 Unarmed
- Transport/logistics variant, has no weapons, but carries up to 4 ammoboxes
- 9P148 Konkurs
- Anti-tank variant, equipped with five 9M113 Konkurs anti-tank missiles instead of the turret.
- The relatively predictable path of the missiles on the 9P148 Konkurs variant of the BRDM-2 allows it to be somewhat effective against slow-moving, armoured targets, such as main battle tanks and logistics vehicles.
