Does it have the same damage and stats as the one before? Or does it behave similar to the Demo General's BRDM in Shockwave (as in long range high damage)?
Lovely model btw, great job I'm really looking forward to this update.

Youre messing things up, BRDM was Deathstrike technical replacement.

Zoar_Prime Nov 22 2013 replied:

actually you are both right
Juhziz had them available with wire guided rockets as a generals power those were labeled BRDM-2s
Deathstrike had BRDM-1s with an anti-infantry weapon that was upgraded into rockets via salvage as a technical replacement

Precisely, with Deathstrike you could get a Spandrel BRDM-2 with salvage but it was nowhere near as effective against tanks as Juhziz's BRDM. Also judging from the comment below it looks like the BRDM is gonna have the same stats. It's just a visual overhaul and a pretty good one I must say!

>Internal space to carry four soldiers
Unsure if it'll be true in-game or just RL reference.

I suppose the BRDM-1 will also follow the Frogfoot's fate and not make any appearances in the game (Like a General's unit)? Why was it replaced?

It was replaced because The_Hunter concluded that the BRDM-1 model was old and instead of just remaking it up to the current standard, he went for an entirely different, more interesting-looking vehicle that is 1960s vintage like the reserve tank and Shilka and overall more prominent rather than 1950s vintage.

Yes, poor thing (BRDM-1 I mean) lived through Vietnam and flak-knows-how-many-more conflicts, give it a rest :)

With his armed forces hard pressed to resist the joint counter-attack of the Europeans and their American allies, President Suvorov has ordered the mobilisation of additional vehicles from Russia's vast reserves of Cold War era equipment. The fast, lightly armoured BRDM-2 has been refurbished and armed with any surplus anti-tank guided missile available. Despite their overall dated technology, the vehicles can take advantage of their agility to surprise enemy tanks, which made them a useful, airdroppable support asset during the massive armoured engagements that took place in northern and central Germany during the ECA's advance on Berlin. It is also worth noting that the BRDM-2 has enough internal space to transport four soldiers in full gear.
