Default Whats more Common in ME? BMP1 or BMP3?

Ok, I'm curious about this, cause for reasons beyond me I only found that there was a difference between the BMP1 and 3. Whats more common in the ME? Is the BMD common there? Its just a random thought that popped in my head

BMP-3 is not used outside of Russia AFAIK, due to it being far, far too badass.

I would guess there is a smattering of BMP-1s and 2s, as well as BTR-60s, 70s and 80s

Not sure about BMDs

Dunno...but I'd love to see the crappy BTR's being replaced by BMP1/2's....even though they are IFV's.

BMP 3's are used in quite a few countries actually, after seeing videos of the Greeks and others using them on ranges etc on youtube

A majority of BMP-3s are in use outside of Russia with Abu Dhabi (the United Arab Emirates) being the largest operator:

* Azerbaijan - 4
* Cyprus - 43
* Greece - 450 BMP-3M on order.[7]
* Indonesia - 20 BMP-3F on order, scheduled to deliver in 2008
* South Korea - 70
* Kuwait - 110
* Russia - 540-550, 30 BMP-4 on order.
* Sri Lanka
* Ukraine - 4 [8]
* United Arab Emirates - 598 with "Namut" thermal sight and other modifications. Might be further upgraded with modular armor "Kaktus" and UTD-32 engine.
* Venezuela - The Venezuelan government is currently negotiating the purchase of 600 or more BMP-3 vehicles from the Russian Federation. The Venezuelan BMP-3s will be of the BMP-3M variant, with explosive reactive armor and the new Bakhcha-U turret; they will be protected by the Shtora-1 defense system, as the most advanced variant of the BMP-3 to date.

Can the dev team plz do something about the BTR-60 its is really awful. It sucks so much that most people only crew it for taxi reasons. I know that taxi is on of the roles of an apc, but I seriously want an apc that is more in line with the LAV. I have seen people rape with the BTR but most people hate it....

For BTR-60 check out this thread:
http://www.realitymod.com/forum/f254...-btr-60-a.html

I think for maps like Fools road Russia should have the bmp3 not btr-60 or 80 in the future.
