In the facts that Vehicle named BRDM-2 (Boyevaya Razvedyvatelnaya Dozornaya Mashina) or also known as "Combat Reconnaissance" is the former military use USSR (Russia) as a vehicle security or war. But after obtaining permission from the local Government, the BRDM-2 is also able to operate on public roads as Taxi's.

A "Car" or public transport with a thickness of 14 mm thick body is able to deliver anywhere that became the location of the destination in each location and condition of the terrain that is difficult to reach.

Most Powerful Taxi

If seen on the pictures, you may not believe that a vehicle is a tool of public transportation. But, believe or not believe, that's the reality. Reported Odditycentral, armored vehicles was indeed a taxi that operates in the St. Petersburg, Russia. In order to obtain operating permits from local authorities, taxi bodied tank was given a red color and all forms of weapons attached to it has been disabled. For information, nicknamed vehicle BRDM-2 Combat Command and Reconnaissance Vehicle was made in the Soviet Union around in 1963-1989. At that time, it was known for its ability to traverse any terrain qualified. To add toughness, manufacturers immerse Vladimirov heavy machine gun and 14.5 mm Kalashnikov tank machine gun 7.62 mm.

The Red Tank

The owner have long wanted to make the vehicle as a Taxi. However, the City government could not grant his request. Until eventually extended license application and the Tank was allowed to operate under certain conditions. The owner was asked to change the vehicle camouflage patterns to be something more civil. That was the reason why it is colored red cab. In addition, because of the heavy load and large size, the BRDM-2 Taxi also banned across certain streets in the historical center of St. Petersburg. Here following the video of this Taxi:

Besides looks dashing, these taxis also have extraordinary abilities. It was able to cross the "Extreme Path". Whether it rocks, steep slopes, or puddles deep enough.

The Taxi Capabilities

Furthermore, BRDM-2 Taxi also has some advantages, ranging from relief interior and amphibious capabilities that allow its to walk on the Neva River. And also, the owner did not remodel the interior, so that to date the vehicle is still a Spartan design. So, how about the cost to be incurred for the tough Taxi ride? As reported by the Odditycentral, that the passengers will be charged a fee of 5,000 rubles, or about US $100.00,- dollars in each way. So, then, how interested feel the sensation of riding a typical Soviet military vehicles? It seems cool when trying to use this transportation, or maybe there are among us herein have ever been used it?
