History[edit | edit source]
Originally designed for the Hungarian army under the designation D-442 FUG, the OT-65A is a Czechoslovakian variant in the same family as the Soviet BRDM-1. An upgrade of the original OT-65 which included upgrading the protection for the driving lights and the turret hatch locations, it also included the option to mount the 82mm T-21 recoilless rifle to the turret to increase the armament and fighting capability of the vehicle. Currently, all variants have been taken out of service, except for a small reserve of D-442 FUGs in Hungary.
