notes"The BMD-2 is a Soviet-era airborne infantry fighting vehicle, introduced in 1985. It is a variant of BMD-1 with a new turret and some changes done to the hull. BMD stands for Boyevaya Mashina Desanta (Боевая Машина Десанта, which literally translates to "Airborne Combat Vehicle"). It was developed as a replacement for BMD-1 but it failed to replace it completely because of the downfall of the Soviet economy in the 1980s."
