A BTR-90 in reality.

The BTR-90 is a Russian 8×8 wheeled armored personnel carrier, designed in 1993 and produced in limited numbers, it is a larger version of the BTR-80 vehicle, fitted with a BMP-2 turret. Like other BTR-type vehicles, it's a lightly armored infantry fighting vehicle most often employed in the transport and support of infantry, similar in role to the MOWAG Piranha series of vehicles and its many derivatives, which includes vehicles like the LAV-25. The BTR-90 is equipped with an array of weapons, including an autocannon, coaxial machinegun, grenade launcher, and anti-tank guided missile. Although it was designed in the mid-1990s, the system did not see full-scale production until a decade later, and has seen only small-scale, limited production runs since 2004.

The BTR-90 appears in Battlefield 2 as the main Armored Personal Carrier (APC) used by the Middle Eastern Coalition, the Spetsnaz, Rebels, and Insurgents. Its counterparts are the Chinese WZ551 and the American LAV-25. There are a few differences, however. One is the number of rear-facing machine gun ports. The BTR-90 has no rear-facing machine gun ports, as opposed to the LAV-25's two and the WZ551's one. Instead, its guns are all located on the sides. The BTR's cannon is the fastest firing of the three APCs, making easier to attack infantry and helicopters.

"Russian, wheeled, armored personnel carrier. Bigger and better equipped than its predecessor, the BTR-90 can withstand the impact of 14.5mm projectiles. "
— Battlelog Description

The BTR-90 makes a return in Battlefield 3. It is one of the four new vehicles that come with the Back to Karkand expansion pack. According to the description, the BTR-90 can withstand the impact of 14.5mm projectiles as well as small arms, grenades, and smoke-screens. It is issued to the Russians as their IFV. BTR-90 is amphibious like other IFVs. The second passenger uses the KORD machine gun on top, other passengers may fire light machine guns with unlimited ammo through the firing ports and still be completely protected. Unlike the BMP-2, it cannot turn while stationary since it is wheeled rather than tracked, though it also has better acceleration and handling than the BMP-2. It plays the counterpart role to the LAV-25, with very similar handling, as well as a number of other cosmetic similarities.

The 25mm HE Shells for the cannon are unlocked by default as the primary weapon for the vehicle, providing an excellent effect against dispatch of individual or groups of infantry due to its splash damage. The magazine is limited to 6 rounds per reload however.

For the vehicle's secondary weapon, the ATGM in the form of the mobile-version of the 9M133 Kornet provides the vehicle with a more power weapon to fend or attack armored targets, excellent for medium and long range engagements, unlocked at 5200 points. Unlike the APFSDS-T Shells, the ATGM can be neutralised by Reactive Armor. The Guided Missile unlocked at 74000 points, functions somewhat similarly, allowing the operator to lock on and fire a missile which guides itself towards hostile vehicles. For added effectiveness against infantry, the BTR-90 operator can choose to equip a Coaxial LMG, utilising it as a back up when the main cannon is undergoing a reload phase but leaving the vehicle more vulnerable against enemy vehicles. APFSDS-T Shell provides an excellent middle ground weapon and back-up to the main cannon ammunition, able to disable all types of vehicles with heavy damage with a single magazine expense and not negated by Reactive Armor.

For countermeasures, IR Smoke is unlocked at 800 points, which temporarily spoofs and jams enemy lock-on weapons and can hide the vehicle from enemies, even against Thermal Optics temporarily. Zoom Optics provide the operator a more accurate sighting to dispatch targets at longer ranges and when paired with the higher-velocity APFSDS-T Shells, the vehicle can be utilised into an effective Sniping Rifle.

The gunner is always armed with a secondary heavy machine gun turret, and can equip one of three passive Specialisations including Thermal Camo, Proximity Scan and Maintenance.

LocationsEdit

It spawns on Gulf of Oman only in normal Conquest, not Conquest Assault, and on console it spawns only at the Russian home base and D point, and not at any other location; furthermore, it does not appear on Strike at Karkand or Sharqi Peninsula at all.

BF4 BTR-90 Demonstration


The BTR-90 returns in Battlefield 4. Its basic functions and aesthetics are similar to its previous installment.

The 25mm HE Shells for the cannon are unlocked by default for the vehicle, or can equip APFSDS-T Shells for a more effective anti-vehicle role or Canister Shells for a more anti-infantry orientated role once unlocked respectively. APFSDS-T shells travel at an increased velocity and deal higher damage against vehicles, but do not deal any explosive splash damage of the 25mm HE Shells. Canister shells act like a shotgun, dealing damage in a spread, effective against infantry and light vehicles, but are ineffective against heavy vehicles. All shells from the main cannon are loaded in twelve-round salvos.

For the vehicle's secondary weapon, the Coaxial LMG is unlocked by default, and can be used against infantry and light vehicles. Alternatively, for anti-armor purposes, the TOW Missile or Zuni Rockets can be equipped. Zoom Optics are unlocked by default, but may be replaced with IRNV Optics or Thermal Optics.

For countermeasures, IR Smoke is unlocked by default, which temporarily spoofs and jams enemy lock-on weapons and can hide the vehicle from enemies, even against IRNV or Thermal optics temporarily. The Fire Extinguisher can help the vehicle recover from being disabled. The Smokescreen does not counteract lock-on or thermal imaging, but provides effective visual cover, and makes the vehicle immune to critical damage. Active Protection will defeat all incoming anti-tank or high-explosive projectiles for a short time while active (with the exception of TV Missiles which are classified as a 'vehicle' instead of a 'weapon/projectile' by the game engine).

The gunner is always armed with a secondary heavy machine gun turret, and can equip one specialization. The Gunner SOFLAM can be equipped to laser-paint targets, Belt Feeder to improve the MG's reload time, Proximity Scan to scan for enemies around the vehicle (pointless for use in Hardcore game modes due to lack of a minimap), or Gunner Incendiary to damage enemy infantry in vicinity. In addition, aforementioned optics may be equipped.

Other passengers may fire light machine guns with unlimited ammo through the firing ports and still be completely protected.

TriviaEdit

Battlefield 2Edit

  • The BTR's main difference is the MEC flag on the side; it does not have the star and crescent.

Battlefield 3Edit

  • The BTR-90 is affected by a bug that can cause the IFV to drive at 130 KPH, which is usually caused by it bouncing off a sand dune.
