BRDM-1 2P32

In 1962 the Soviet Army put into service a tank destroyer derived from the BRDM-1 reconnaissance vehicle and designated as BRDM-1 2P32. This vehicle had an armament composed by a 2K38 anti-tank guided missile launcher with a capacity of four radio commanded AT-2 Swatter missiles. Those missiles had an approximate range of 2,500 meters and were capable to penetrate up to 600mm of armour. The BRDM-1‘s rear was transformed into a superstructure that housed the missile launcher, which remains housed in that place until it was to be used. Then, two panels are removed from the roof, the launcher was raised and the missiles could be fired to the target while the vehicle should remain completely stopped.
