Cold War APC use by Soviet Union and other countries

    From Wikipedia: "
    The BTR-50 (BTR stands for Bronetransporter (БТР, Бронетранспортер), literally "armored transporter") is a Soviet amphibious armored personnel carrier (APC) based on the PT-76 light tank. The BTR-50 is tracked, unlike most in the BTR series, which are wheeled. The BTR-50 was developed in 1952 and entered service with the Soviet Army in 1954. It was first shown in public in November 1957. It served in the motorized rifle regiments of tank divisions and mechanized brigades in the Soviet and East German armies. A typical mechanized brigade consisted of three battalions, each of which had 30 APCs and a command vehicle. They were replaced in front line service by the BMP-1 IFV. Command vehicle variants were employed by many Warsaw Pact armies."

    Included are the following versions: India, Iran, Algeria, Albania, Soviet, and a generic dark camo pattern.

    Credits: SnafuSmith as I rigged the model to his BTR-152.nif and anim, Walter Hawkwood for advice on converting these models, and to the original model creator (who I don't know who it is).
