It’s actually a BRDM-2RKh, the chemical warfare reconnaissance variant — to be precise, the one in Bovington (if it’s still displayed there, the photo is from 2002). I stuck my camera through one of the hatches in the front hull roof to take this photo.
Here’s a view of the whole vehicle (but a different one I found online):
For those not familiar with the BRDM-2, the reason I mentioned the wheel wells is because BRDMs are eight-wheelers, even though it usually looks like they have only have four. There are two retractable, chain-driven wheels on each side between the front and rear wheels. In the photo I posted, you can see the wheel well for the left front wheel at the right of the picture, and to the left of that, the smaller wells for the two retractable wheels on that side.
The references are saying 8th regiment French Hussars, but the shako plume is wrong.....should apparently just be black.
I assume the number on the blanket roll is the company number? Initially I thought the Pellise was grey, which threw me a bit...stil not convinced I’m right....could be one of the German states...
