The Russian military got it's rear kicked in 1994 during the Battle of Grozny when they drove their tanks and BMPs right in the middle of Grozny without proper support or preparation. The end result had Chechins shooting RPGs from upper levels at Russian armored fighting vehicles beneath them and hitting the thin upper armor. The BMPT Terminator was the result and specially designed to support tanks in urban areas. Unlike other Russian tanks, the BMPT has a five man crew and is heavily armored. In addition, the vehicle has a twin 30mm cannon in the turret with high elevation, two 30mm automatic grenade with their gunners on either side of the driver, four Ataka ATGMs and one machine gun and based on the T-90 hull. The model was recently released by Zvezda in 1/72 scale and painted with colors from AKAN'S "Terminator (BMPT)- splintered camouflage" paint set #46340. I highly recommend AKAN paints to anybody building a Russian/Soviet subject.

Excellent work, it’s hard to believe your kits are only 1/72

That looks the business, Chuck and could easily pass for 1/35th!
