BRM-1 (BMP-R or BMP M1976)
The BRM-1 (BMP-R or BMP M1976) is an armored reconnaissance vehicle that is derived from the BMP Fighting Vehicle (BMP M1976/1) without smoke grenade launchers, added comms (R-130, R-014D telegraph), and Tall Mike radar but with four more passengers. The BMP Ml976 reconnaissance vehicle has the same enlarged two-man turret as the M1975 but mounts the standard 73-mm main gun (without the SAGGER launcher). The BMP M 1976(2) model has a small parabolic antenna on the roof. One of these vehicles is assigned, along with three BMP-1s, to the reconnaissance company of a motorized rifle or tank regiment, and three of them are assigned to the reconnaissance battalion of a motorized rifle or tank division.
The BRM-1K (BMP M1976/2) Armored Reconnaissance Command Vehicle, derived from BMP-1, has a 2-man turret and additional sensors. Two manportable SAM launchers are included. BMP-1 options fit BRM-1 and -1K. Passengers may dismount from BRM-1K and will dismount from BRM-1 to form an alternate reconnaissance post.
