BTR-82AT: Heavy-duty Firepower


The BTR-82AT featuring Konkurs-M ATGM’s and the 2A42 30mm Autocannon.

  • Description :
    • The BTR-82A is an 8x8 Armored Personnel Carrier that was developed from the BTR-80A. Development of the BTR-82A began in between 2009 and 2010 by Arzamas Machine-Building Plant (AMZ) that featured multiple improvements over the original BTR-80A. This included an turbo-charged 8-cylinder 4-stroke V-shaped Diesel Engine, named the KamAZ-740.14-300 that produced 300hp which provided a significant increase in maneuverability and reliability. This was coupled to a new manual transmission that featured a 5-to-1 gear ratio which allowed for a maximum speed of 80km/h. One of the main features of the vehicle however is the increased in crew survivability. The BTR-82A features 12.7mm frontal protection and 7.62mm all around protection, however equipped with a kevlar-lining, significantly improving survivability against IED’s, mines, and artillery shrapnel. It can also equip a 360-degree Bar armor to protect against HEAT-shaped charges as well as additional ballistic armor covering the frontal arc. The BTR-82AT however, is a further development of the BTR-82A, mating the DUBM BTR-BM Combat Module developed by Voyenno-promyshlennaya kompaniya, or VPK, to the BTR-82A hull resulting in significantly increased anti-tank capabilities. Making its debut in 2021 at the Army-2021 military exhibition, the BTR-82AT comes equipped with the 2A42 30mm autocannon that utilizes the 30x165 cartridge. Also equipped is two anti-tank guided missile (ATGM) launchers on both sides of the turret that can fire the 9M133M Konkurs-M missile capable of penetrating modern main battle tanks. These weapons can be fired by the Gunner using a new advanced fire-control system equipped with a 3rd-generation thermal camera as well as an integrated laser rangefinder for target ranging as well as providing guidance for the ATGM’s. The thermal imager increases overall effectiveness at night to around 3km. For equipping the Konkurs-M ATGM launchers, some space in the rear of the vehicle for personnel was reduced in order to provide additional storage space for extra Konkurs missiles. The Commander operates the TKN-AI combined day/night periscope with rangefinder capable of locating targets for the Gunner. The Driver is equipped with the driver is equipped with a TVN-4E Passive IR periscope. The BTR-82A crew is also equipped with the VHF (Very High Frequency) R-168-25-U2 Radio Station, enabling long distance, secure communications. The BTR-82AT features the same hull, drivetrain, and armor capabilities of the BTR-82A and can provide valuable fire support for mobile infantry. The BTR-82AT is a tank destroyer/IFV hybrid variant of the BTR-82A, and may be integrated within the Russian Army in the near future.

  • In-game :
    • The BTR-82AT is a powerful Tank Destroyer/IFV hybrid that relies on speed and firepower to knock out its targets. Featuring little to no armor, only capable of protecting against 7.62mm up to 12.7mm rounds and artillery shrapnel thanks to its kevlar-lining, the BTR-82AT is quite fragile but can be equipped with additional ballistic plating and Bar armor at the cost of its amphibious capabilities to increase its protection against HEAT-shaped charges. This also helps protect the vehicle from hull-breaking mechanics. The BTR-82AT’s features a rapid firing 30mm autocannon with the capability to fire the 3UBR11 APFSDS-T rounds that can make very quick work of vehicles ranging from light tanks and IFV’s, to main battle tanks and modules. The vehicle is also equipped with a highly capable Gunner’s 3rd-generation Thermal Imager to engage targets at night as well as the very effective Konkurs-M ATGM capable of penetrating main battle tanks with ease. One thing to note is that the BTR-82AT cannot fire the Konkurs-M on the move. Operators are recommended to take advantage of its unmanned turret and remain in hull down positions if required to engage targets head on.
