    Well for one if it was final stage supersonic it wouldn't have been intact. What Anduriel pointed out. And the head section doesn't match.

    Look at the wings - only supersonic veriant has such a single-piece wing. And i repeat it again - there is a cuff that covers the third stage from the upside.



    This is what they actually found.






    What Anduriel pointed out.
    As i said before - he's wrong, as well.

    And the head section doesn't match.
    There is NO head section on that wreck - it's just a 2nd stage with a cuff.

    No differences here - it's just the 2nd stage w/o control surfaces and 1st stage booster.

    But the folding single-piece wing and cuff leave no doubts this is a 2nd stage of the supersonic 3M54 ASM.

    That's why I've said it is more of an APC rather than MRAP — It has a much stronger general protection than usual.

    Even better protected, but I do not see these vehicles employed in the same role as APC or IFVs due to their high profile. These things are useful in counterinsurgency hazardous areas where IEDs are present
