The BTR-60 was developed in the 1950s a replacement for older wheeled armoured personnel carriers and was first revealed in 1961. BTR stands for Bronetransporter (БТР, Бронетранспортер, literally "armoured transporter").
Designed to replace older open-topped APCs the BTR-60 was fully enclosed giving its passengers increased protection from enemy artillery (and grenades). Unlike other contemporary designs where the passengers exited out rear doors, the BTR-60 had overhead hatches for passengers to exit and then jump or climb down from. The BTR-60 was also armed with a 14.5mm machine gun and coaxial 7.62mm machine gun in a small turret that was operated by a specialist gunner. The driver (who sat on the left) and Commander (on the right) was in the hull of the vehicle.
