BRDM-2 AA and AT 5-21-94 at Aberdeen.
The AFV ASSOCIATION was formed in 1964 to support the thoughts and research of all those interested in Armored Fighting Vehicles and related topics, such as AFV drawings. The emphasis has always been on sharing information and communicating with other members of similar interests; e.g. German armor, Japanese AFVs, or whatever.

Nice photos.
Also, the missiles on the 9P148 are not the 9M113 Konkurs (AT-5 Spandrel), but the shorter ranged 9M111 Fagot (AT-4 Spigot). The Konkurs has a fatter rear end on the tube.

Costas, They apparently are Fagot Missiles, Spandel was wrote on the sign. Thanks for the correction. Rick

You are welcome, but Spandrel is also correct as far as it pertains to the vehicle's capabilities.
As it happens, the 9P148 is capable of firing either the 9M111 or the 9M113 without modification. In fact, any launcher capable of launching one of the two can also fire the other, since the interfaces are identical. It applies to the infantry tripod launcher, the one found on the BMP-2 and so on, so forth and such like. The 9M113 is more common on dedicated AT platforms like the 9P148 BRDM.
Kind of the same thing applies to the Strela-10 (SA-13 Gopher) TELAR, which is backwards compatible with the Strela-1 (SA-9 Gaskin) missile round.

So either missile is compatible then, but this vehicle is armed with the 9M111 Fagot, thanks again.

Again, you are welcome. As a point of interest, this variant, despite being so obviously a missile armed tank destroyer, was frequently identified in the West as the BRDM-3, i.e. a scout vehicle, just because it used the BRDM-2 chassis. The actual BRDM-3 is a variant of the BTR-80A.
