BTR80's in Soviet Naval infantry list

on Tue Jul 03, 2018 9:21 pm
Can anybody help me out with some info on the year that Naval infantry units changed from BTR60's to BTR80's?
My Cold war gear is 85-86ish and I've just got a great deal on a job lot of BTR'80's and the rather tasty Naval infantry list from Richard is tempting the s**t out of me!
I'll go with 60's if I have to but it would be nice to put the 80's to good use.

Regards, Bonklebrain.

According to the Russian sources I could find, BTR-80s were progressively introduced in Naval Infantry units from 1986 onwards. These were, by the end of 1986, present in the Pacific Ocean and Baltic Sea naval infantry units, and in units of the Black Sea Naval Infantry, but the latter only used them in Afghanistan in 1986 (they got their own BTR-80s later on, in 1988-89)

Thanks for that mate. That's music to my ears! Now I've only got to source a 1/72nd Lebed hovercraft!
