WARNING: The color pictures from Vitaly V. Kuzim are not entirely representative of what variation of the BTR-90 that is being suggested and the will be replaced in the future.

 

In 1994, Arzamas Machine-Building Plant unveiled a new APC that was meant to arm Russia’s Motor Rifle Divisions. This new APC was larger and much heavier than the previous BTR-80 with improvements in every major area. Firepower was increased by using the turret from the BMP-2 with an added 30-MM AGS-17 grenade launcher. This turret was temporary as it lagged behind in FCS. The armor was increased to the same level as the Army’s BMP-3. That being 30-MM across the frontal arc and 12.7 for the sides and rear. With a completely new chassis came a more powerful 2V-06-2M 510HP engine and a new automatic hydromechanical transmission that allowed for a maximum top speed of at least 100KMH/ 62MPH in both forward and reverse. Unlike previous Soviet BTRs, BTR-90 wasn’t restricted to a large turning radius. Thanks to the new transmission, 90 was quoted as having “tank like maneuverability” due to it being turn with something akin to neutral steering. Generally speaking BTR-90 is unmatched in it’s maneuvering capabilities, when compared to the previous BTRs.
 While this version of the BTR-90 wouldn’t be adopted by the Russian Federation, a later version would be accepted into service but it wouldn’t purchased.

Yes, I know these drawings show the IR Lamp on the turret while the other pictures have something in it's place. There many slight variations the BTR-90's chassis and a few different turrets. Finding pictures of the original chassis with the BMP-2 turret with the IR Lamp proved to difficult. Looking again, I think the pictured one has the hatches slightly angled foward...

2000 modernization and NII STALI add-on ERA kit:-

At some point in 2000,  Arzamas updated BTR-90's chassis by exteneding the slope to reach the turret and the driver's and assitant driver's hatch were moved to be situatated on the UFP. The side armor was also changed to incorate space armor. The internal water jets were also replaced with external ones.

A some point after that, NII STALI deveploped the add-on armor kit 'Typhoon' that included slat armor and 4S24 ERA.

4S24 'Floaty McBoaty' ERA:-

Due to the decease of the amount of explosives and lighter weight, 4S24 is typically employed on IFVs. Based on the BMP-3, it's likely BTR-90 would retain the ability to swim with the kit.

Fun Fact: 4S24 is also employed on a few MBTs. Such as T-72B3M, T-80BVM, T-90MS

only if fitted with the ATGM and preferably only the original model

All BTR-90s have an ATGM launcher as standard

+1, but I personally would like to see the modifications as seperate tanks.  I am not entirely a fan of all this vehicle combining.

That's all good but I just don't the TT flooded with like 4 potential BTR-90s

True, I mainly mean though like modifications that are years apart and/or would effect the vehicle’s BR or something.  Like the BMP-1 for example, the BMP-1 is honestly like a 6.7 or 7.0 vehicle.  Then the BMP-1 is like 7.7.  And they are obviously different vehicles.  ‘Let’s combine them at 7.3.’

 

Mods like the T-64B obr. 1984 also being the T-64BV, I don’t care.

Potentially Mod 2000's 'Typhoon' kit would create a problem. Since the next BTR-90 in the line, (BTR-90 'Berezhok') wouldn't have it.

Sounds like an excellent expandable subfolder opportunity to me?  Like the T-28, you can get it, the. you could continue on down the tree, or you can research the T-28E with the additional armour in the expandable subfolder...

That or a Rank 6 9.3 Prem? I don't know if that would be too low for something with a tandem ATGM. Would it be balanced out by it's massive size and likely inclusion of hull-break?

This is of-course subject to change if I can information stating the Typhoon kit is also available for 'Berezhok'. Wouldn't even be too hard for NII STALI, considering the only difference would be for the steel plate on the UFP.
