BMP-1 Running Laps, Clearing Mines

Another video from the American Wartime Museum open house last month.

A BMP-1, dressed out in late Cold-War colors.

Gotta like the simulated “react to mine” drill.   The political officer stated this was only a drill and that had this been a real mine field, the team would have used the “stomp the mines out” method to clear the path, thus saving the vehicle.

He also ordered me to pass along this video showing the BMP-1 doing real work.

Note the comparison to knock-off capitalist copies.
