An improved command variant of the BRM-1 was developed simultaneously with it, called the BRM-1K. It has all the equipment and fittings of the BRM-1 plus a few new ones. It is fitted with a mast antenna and late production models have six 81 mm 902V "Tucha" smoke grenade launchers (three on each side). It is equipped with 50 mm flares which are used for battlefield illumination. The number of firing ports was reduced from eight to three (one on each side of the vehicle and one in the rear). It is equipped with a DKRM-1 laser rangefinder, an ERRS-1 radio direction finder, a PPChR radiological-chemical detection device, a WPChR military chemical detection device, an IMP-1 mine detector, and an AB-1-P 1 kW box-shaped portable petrol-electric generator. Day/night observation devices consist of thirteen TNPO-170As, one TNPK-240A, two TNPT-1s, two TVNE-1PAs and one pair of 1PN33B night binoculars. Navigation equipment includes a TNA-3 gyroscopic apparatus, a 1G11N gyro-compass and a 1T25 survey device. The BRM-1K entered service with the Soviet Army in 1972, and production started in 1973. The ammunition carried was reduced to twenty rounds for the 73 mm 2A28 Grom low pressure smoothbore gun, and the vehicle weighs 13.2 tons. NATO gave it the designation BMP M1976/2.



BRM-1K in Stone Trap Arena

In-game, the BRM-1 has a slightly below the average damage, but a fast reload to greatly compensate for it. Given its maxed speed of 58 km/h, it is a great flag runner in Capture the Flag. But, the armor is abysmal and the health pool is rather low. Because of these statistics, it performs best as a flanking and supporting unit. When attempting to capture/deliver a flag in Capture the Flag, it is very necessary to have other fast supporting vehicles nearby for them to take the hits from enemies instead. Its turret rotation speed is nice, so it is not frequent that the BRM-1 gets outflanked. It is also amphibious as well. Like most Soviet/Russian tanks, its reverse speed is horrid.

Pros and Cons


  • Awesome DPM, amazing penetration values

  • Fast turret rotation speed, small turret as well
  • Very low profile


  • Health pool is fairly low, armor is pathetic with no spaced armor either
  • Overall mobility is pretty bad, reverse speed is laughable
  • Cannot use the APDS ammo round
  • Tracks get damaged fairly easily
