Product Description

About the BMP-1 (Iraqi):

The BMP-1 is a fully amphibious tracked vehicle, with a front-engined chassis developed especially for it, a welded steel hull with a sharp, sloping front with a conspicuously ridged surface, a centrally located, flat, truncated cone turret and a troop compartment at the rear. Prior to the first Gulf War, Iraq bought around 1,000 BMP-1s and 800 BMP-2s. he first vehicles were bought by Iraq from the USSR in the 1970s. Iraq also developed two upgrades for the BMP-1 and one armored ambulance conversion. The vehicle was mainly used by the Iraqi Republican Guard.

Numerous flaws existed with the design of the BMP-1, which did not become obvious until the Soviet War in Afghanistan. The driver and commander are in a position that would allow an antitank mine to destroy one to three left side roadwheels, killing or severely injuring both of them. The BMP-1 lacks an air conditioning or cooling system, often resulting in severe issues for the passengers and crew members due to heat exhaustion.
