US Army receives ‘fake’ Russian military vehicles

The US military announced that its unit has received the modified Humvee and Striker to resemble Russian-made military vehicles.

The 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, better known as the Blackhorse Regiment, received the replacement of the Russian army BTR-87 armored personnel carrier and Tigr multi-purpose armored vehicle.

“These vehicles allow the Regiment to replicate the capabilities of armored personnel carriers, highly mobile reconnaissance vehicles and self-propelled artillery,” the regiment said on Twitter.


The Russian-looking Humvees have been fitted with an image modification kit to resemble the Tigr and Strykers armored multi-purpose vehicles, which, in turn, have been modified to look like a newly upgraded variant of the BTR-87. equipped with remote control weapon station 32V01.

Kits serve as a cost-effective alternative to actual combat vehicles.
