Product Description
The BMP-1 is a Soviet infantry fighting vehicle which was first introduced in the early 1960s. BMP stands for Boyevaya Mashina Pekhoty (literally "Combat Vehicle of the Infantry"). In the 1980s the improved BMP-2 was introduced. The BMP is amphibious.

The BMP-1 was first seen by the West in the November 7, 1967 parade and is considered the world`s first infantry fighting vehicle. Its steeply-sloped front armour was proofed against the .50 calibre machine guns carried by NATO armoured personnel carriers, while its smoothbore gun and AT-3 Sagger ATGM were a threat to NATO APCs and even main battle tanks. It replaced the BTR-50 in motorized infantry units.

Owing to experiences in Afghanistan, a new version, the BMP-2, was introduced in the early 1980s. It had a new two-man turret with a 30mm cannon and externally-mounted AT-4 Spigot or AT-5 Spandrel ATGMs.

While a formidable vehicle when first introduced, theoretically capable of defeating the steel-armoured medium tanks of its time with its 73mm HEAT round, today the BMP-1 is at a severe disadvantage when engaging modern infantry fighting vehicles such as the U.S. M2 Bradley IFV or British Warrior IFV, and is almost totally ineffective against modern tanks.

During the 1980s many BMPs in Warsaw Pact countries were provided with one RPG-7 shoulder-launched anti-tank weapon, and one Strela/Igla shoulder-launched anti-aircraft missile launcher. These could be fired by climbing through the top hatches while on the move. A Dragunov sniper rifle was also frequently provided, especially to BMP crews in a reconnaissance role.

The model is rigged for animation, and the product features four detailed and textured resolutions of the model.

This model is a 3DMax model, saved in version 8 as a MAX file, and requires 3DMax. It does not include any other formats to allow it to be opened in any other software. The model is rigged where appropriate, and mapped and textured.
