    thanks all )

    ozy, I think the one you may be thinking of was the BMD (as opposed to BMP). That one was air-droppable for use with the Russian Airborne forces.

    You a birthday boy today Zeek? If so, happy birthday )

    Ah -- thanks for the citation. I was close, but no cigar:

    "The popular PT-76 chassis has also been modified for use in many subsequently developed vehicles, including the BTR-50P and OT-62 series of APCs, the ZSU-23-4 self-propelled antiaircraft gun, the ASU-85 airborne assault gun [...]"

    Also @Ripptide -- And you, my friend, were also correct -- from the same site MarineCorps provided on the BMD-1: http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/russia/bmd-1.htm

    Best,

    Oz

    pretty well yep. I believe development started shortly after WW2 and started service in the mid-50's. Lot of them floating (get it...floating :D gawd I crack me up) around during the Cold War in almost every Russian client state.
