The missile is also highly maneuverable, which makes it difficult to intercept.

Despite the age of the BTR-60PB and BTR-70 armored personnel carriers, which were designed in the 1950s and 1960s, both pro-Russian units within the Russian Armed Forces and the Ukrainian army continue to utilize these vehicles in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine.
