Description: The Soviet BTR-70 (armored transport vehicle) was disparage by soldiers for its susceptibility to the forms of improvised warfare, and the western supplied weapons, used by Afghan fighters. Its unreliable drive train and poor mileage were also weaknesses. It was ultimately replaced by the more reliable BTR-80 in 1984, by which time Soviet casualties had turned public opinion against the war.
