15mm Rayonian BTR-70 Armoured Personnel Carriers.

8 wheeled "armoured transporter" (it's what BTR stands for!), 11.5 tonnes, 3 crew and 7 passengers, 14.5mm KPVT machine gun and 7.62mm PKT machine gun and 50mph!

Ray has been bleating for more armoured support and I got these from QRF (minus the 7.62mm machine gun on 2 and a stub on the third!), not the best but they'll do.

Well I'm hoping it's the BTR-70 and not the BTR-60 as they looked the same.....







Have a good weekend if you can people........

  3. Speed traps? Didn't know there were even speed limits in Franonia and Rayonia

    OK, so he's got some APCs - now for some tanks!


    Nice paint jobs Fran :)

  6. Nice. The wheels are nicely weathered and the bodies look utilitarian and ready to go.

  13. Nice set of vehicles indeed.. though why cave into the demands of the Rayonian empire? Just crush them and make these for Franonia!

  14. Well, Ray certainly got his support. You have a good weekend, too, over there in Franonia!

  15. Looking cool. Now when are you going to add airplanes to the forces. ;)
    Oh I will have a great weekend. 3 days without work.

    ReplyDelete
  16. You've done a lovely job of painting these up Francis. What would Ray do without a friend like you?

  17. I love Russian armor. Nicely painted stuff there, Fran

  18. Would these be the same Rayonian transporters that go faster in reverse than they do going forward? ;) Great work Sir, have a great weekend too.

  19. Nice job. Especially on the wheels.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Nice Rayonian cavalcade. I can smell the hot brakes from here!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Those things are awesome! Nothing's getting though those!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Those are BTR-70s. The 60 has a sloped rear deck. Ray is good to go, though they are better than he deserves since you are doing the painting.

    ReplyDelete
  23. What are you trying to do with all this cool stuff, tempt me into 15 mm modern! Aaah!

    ReplyDelete
  24. A force to be reckoned with, that's for sure! Fine job and have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Nice additions to the force. Makes them very mobile and with some defensive cover if needed. Will they have air support? Dean

  26. do the wheels move? pretty badass

  27. Well APCs are very handy to have. You can never have enough steel between you and your men.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Transports is that all I get, gimme some decent stuff!!!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Looks like Ray got some support, even though I see he's still whining..haha

    ReplyDelete
  30. Nicely painted. And nice weekend to you too.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Very nice Fran, once again a great work!

    ReplyDelete
  32. They're looking good, can they stand against the might of Franonian armour though?

    ReplyDelete
  33. tanks look like cell phones, my advice don't answer the call!

  36. Nicely done Fran. Have a good weekend to mate

  37. I had toys like that when i was a child

    ReplyDelete
  38. Nice wee models. The folks of Franonia though will be hoping that's all the armour Rayonia will have but I have a feeling the arms race is just hotting up between the 2 nations!

    ReplyDelete
  39. nice looking APC's maybe those diplomats from Rayonia did like the rebels who captured them... I was hopping to get some BTR-60/70's maybe ray wants the rebels to aid his cause after they throw over the government of oronegro... you would have a hard time if they got involved... especialy Karri

    ReplyDelete
  40. Excellent additions. Really like the APC's

    ReplyDelete
  41. Wait till Ray adds his own models to the mix, maybe then he will stand a chance? LOL

  42. The arms race is slowly building there Fran which is good to see.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Very nice Fran, this project is coming along very well, I am looking forward to your first fight.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Ver nice models, Fran. These vehicles are the perfect complement for the Red Berets, I think.

    Best regards.

  45. Looking at these pics, all the scroll down all I could think was "bang".

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know what they say about men with big vehicles...
    Kidding.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Those are awesome, would love to own one of those tanks myself haha.

    ReplyDelete
  48. serious looking APCs...good work

    ReplyDelete
  49. Very good looking one of my favorite vehicles

  50. How could BTR stand for "armored transporter"? It doesn't even have a letter "B" there. I could understand if you were talking about APC though. I apologize for the lack of knowledge about this kind of things.

    1. BTR stands for Bronetransportyor literally "armoured transporter"......
