Introduction

The BREM-K is a recovery vehicle that is based on the BTR-80. The turret is armed with only the PKT machine gun and features a winching installation that is used in conjunction with the A-frame that can be fitted at the nose of the vehicle. Two outriggers at the front provide stabilization when the A-frame is used. A stowage platform is installed on the rear deck.
