<...> But back to the main topic - the near-criminal investigations.
In addition to the long-suffering contract for the supply of the notorious "Oplot" tanks, the Kingdom of Thailand ordered armored personnel carriers of the BTR-3 family in the near-reihe. It seems that it was successfully completed in 2016, but one moment, after all, remained behind the scenes.
In addition to the actual armored personnel carriers, the delivery included three more vehicles:
BTR-3S - sanitary-evacuation armored car;
BTR-3BR - armored recovery vehicle;
BTR-3M - self-propelled mortar.
There are no complaints about the BTR and the mortar - they were cut out of the Soviet-made BTR-80. He singled out the distinctive distinctive “birthmark” - the commander’s viewing window was slightly shifted to the center, at the junction of the axles of the armor-strikes the characteristic “accretion”:

The same design feature can be seen in the early BREM and "nurses":

Everything changed with the beginning of the war in the Donbass - the dill urgently had a huge need for the original BTR-80. Therefore, the last batches of the BTR-3C were already washed down from the BTR-70 hulls - the differences in armored vehicles are clearly visible:

Two such cars in the port of Illichivsk in April 2016:

BTR-3BR already at the exhibition in 2012 lit up its non-kosher origin:

At the factory in 2014:

In Thailand at the parade:

In total, there were 6 units of the BTR-3C and 13 units of the BTR-3BR in Southeast Asia. It was difficult to say exactly how many of them were filed from the BTR-70 (the cars do not have board numbers and very little photo material).
Based on the delivery dates:
BTR-3S
2012 - 3 units;
2015 - 2 units;
2016 year - 1 unit.
BTR-3BR:
2012 - 5 units;
2013 - 2 units;
2015 - 2 units;
2016 year - 4 units.
It can be assumed that up to a dozen armored cars had counterfeit performance. And the Thai mugs swallowed a fake and said nothing to anyone.
