    Are you blind? It was made out of BMD-3, just like 4 and 4m was.
    More modern,
    better armour than btr-d,
    more space inside both for cargo, both for crew and their comfort.
    btr-d was a platform for various modifications, Rakushka is too, hell they are even developing SAM platform on it (seven road wheels).
    But you have to read it your self what advantages BMD-3 platform gave, over BMD-1/2.

    объект 955 (Object 955), if it'll help you find what you seek.

    soooo much layers, so for 8th layer to be effective all previous layers should be put on? It can be quite uncomfortable...

    And for the lulz, I came up with the 9th layer:
    balaclava from 7th layer + insulated cap from 8th layer, for uber cold weather...

    The first picture you've posted is exactly Federal, but the early version.
    here is the datasheet

    In technical documents it's also called Federal.



    AFAIK Zvezda-V is the same truck as early Federal,
    I suppose the difference is maybe different manufacturers or engines. Not sure

    I guess better be a little uncomfortable then cold if you have to jump around outside with -35 C for a couple of days.

    Also the headgears arent actually layers.

    Hey guys this is one of my first posts. Basically I am a teenager born in Canada but have always been fascinated by Russian military tech. I understand this post is not to be in this thread but I just wanted to say hello and that I will be contributing. I can also translate anything if you guys need so, I am fluent in both languages.

    4min something, 6min something and in big screen (specialy for you) at 7min15s. I'm more interested what's behind that wall, camera shots gave some blurry missile shapes.
