The BTR-60 in real life.

The BTR-60 (Russian: Бронетранспортер, Bronetransportyor; English: Armored transporter) is the second in a series of APCs produced by the Soviet Union from 1959 onwards. It is still used by over 50 countries worldwide, including Mexico, Russia, China, Vietnam and Israel.

Its design included a layout that was very uncommon for the time. The crew sat at front, with the troops directly behind them, followed by the two 90 hp (67 kW) engines in the rear. This layout gave the BTR its own advantages over the normal layout of having the engine in front, but it also created its own problems as well. It is equipped with a 14.5mm KPVT heavy machine gun for light armor engagement and a PKT co-axial 7.62mm machine gun to support the troops it carries.

The BTR-60 has only been featured in Battlefield Vietnam and is used by the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong.

The BTR-60 in Battlefield Vietnam.

In Battlefield Vietnam, the BTR-60 is used by the North Vietnamese Army and Viet Cong. Like the PT-76, the BTR-60 also an amphibious vehicle. However, it has much thinner armor and a lighter armament, which allows it to be faster. It can hold a total of 6 players, with one driver, one gunner, and four passengers, of which two can use their weapons through hatches in the side of the vehicle, and another two which have access to ammunition and medical supplies.

Being only armed with a heavy machine gun, the BTR-60 is not suited for engagement against any form of armor except light vehicles such as the M151 MUTT and the UAZ-469. However, if two Heavy Assault players were to use the side hatches and fire their rocket launchers from it, the vehicle could be used as a somewhat anti-vehicle platform for the Heavy Assaults. The driver would just have to be very careful to avoid getting hit as one shot from any tank will destroy it, granting the killer multiple kills.
