Lego Transport Troop Russian BTR-80

The BTR-80 is an 8×8 wheeled amphibious armored personnel carrier designed in the USSR. It was adopted in 1986 and replaced the previous vehicles, the BTR-60 and BTR-70, in the Soviet army. He was deployed during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. Seven firing hatches specially designed for AK 47s are present on the sides. In the event of an ambush, infantrymen can insert their assault weapons into these trapdoors and return fire while remaining safe. The traps are very simple to use, infantrymen simply insert their weapons horizontally and, once inside, straighten them vertically to clip the weapon into a ring. Once clipped, the weapon pivots on a spherical bearing which provides great maneuverability and also great precision because the weapon is less likely to rear up when fired.
