BTR-D is a variant of the BMD-1, with an additional road wheel, the turret removed, and with a raised hatch area. The BTR-D, which can carry 13 men including 10 infantrymen in the rear compartment, features improved protection through the use of a dual slanted angle in the upper plates of the front armor. First seen during the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, the BTR-D is often referred to as the BMD M1979 by NATO. This a multi-purpose armored transporter can be parachute landed with airborne troops, and is used by Air Assault Forces in a variety of roles and configurations. The BTR-Ds in grenade launcher units will carry one AGS-17 30-mm AGL in the rear.
