TheBTR-50P4 was an experimental Soviet anti-aircraft gun that mounted four 14.5 mm KPV machine guns on the BTR-50 chassis. The BTR-50P4 will play a similar role to the US M16 GMC, i.e. heavy machine gun fire with sufficient ammunition in reserve, which should prove superior at lower combat levels. As such, I suggest this machine has a combat value of 3.7-4.3 in the Soviet tech tree.
In 1948, the SABTU, the General Directorate of Armament, requested two vehicles, a light amphibious tank and an armored personnel carrier, which should have as much in common as possible, be suitable for different roles, and be upgradeable in the future. It is also expected to be able to carry 2,000 kg of equipment on the water. Sormovo plant no. 112, Chelyabinsk plant and Kirov plant research institute VNII-100 have begun joint development of a new series of vehicles. The project was led by Josef Kotin, the man who had developed the KV and IS series of tanks and the SU-152.
In the first test in 1949, Sormovo No. 122 and Sormovo Nos. 101 and 102 failed because of their inadequate quality and their inability to achieve the desired speeds on land or water. The Sormovo 122 plant was excluded from the programme. After the tests of the research institute VNII-100 had also failed, the Council of Ministers of the USSR decided on 15. August 1949 to resume all developments of the machines tested in 1950. The 1951 and 1952 trials were more successful. Object 750 proved so effective that engineers decided to fire the 57mm ZiS-2 and 85mm D-44 guns at the vehicle as it floated. The car, called BTR-50, finally went into production in 1954 and was introduced to the general public in 1957. The design of the light tank would form the basis for the BTR-50, PT-76.

A variant of the BTR-50 was the BTR-50R2. It was equipped with a double 14.5 mm KPV machine gun, followed by the BTR-50P4, which was equipped with a quadruple KPV machine gun. The bottom and curves of the vehicle are reinforced by the increased recoil. Ammunition has also been increased from 1,100 to 2,560. But by 1957, the ZSU-23-4 was under development, and because it had larger guns, a radar tracking system, and full armor, further development of the APC-50P2 and P4 was halted.

- Other Soviet prizes
As the title suggests, we need more beautiful and glorious Soviet prizes. I’m sure you know there’s not much here, so we really need a new one. I suggest artillery with 10 rounds and a reload time of 10 seconds. Seriously, though. This is ridiculous. Car Reloader IS-3 and…
- Smart and determined nerds of the Soviet mainline battleships.
Title. No fools. I’ll get straight to the point. 1. Soviet battleships have almost DoT effects. Presumably the trade-off is for ships with high HE dmg firepower; BBs are generally no match for either. Let’s start by changing that: This seriously undermines the Soviet PSR. Increase the reload by 50% and…
