notes"The BRDM-2 Russian 4x4 Amphibious Armored Scout Car is an amphibious armored patrol car used by Russia and the former Soviet Union. It was also known under the 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, compared to which had improved amphibious capabilities and better armament. The BRDM-2 has a crew of four: a driver, a co-driver, a commander, and a gunner. It has two pairs of chain-driven belly wheels lowered by the driver, which allow trench crossing just like its predecessor, and a centralized tire pressure regulation system, which can be used to adjust the tire pressure of all four tires or individual tires while the vehicle is in motion to suit to the ground conditions."
