   Originally called the Obiekt 765, the BMP-1 or Boevaya Mashina Pekhota, made its debut at the 1967 Moscow Parade.  It was first used in combat during the 1973 conflict between Egypt, Syria and Israel; then again in Afghanistan, Libya, and Angola.

  The layout of the BMP-1 is standard, with the driver sitting in the hull to the left, with the engine to the right.  The commander sits behind him in a 360 degree cupola with searchlight.  Both seats can use periscopes when the trim vane is erected for amphibious operations.  The one man turret is identical to that on the BMD-1 Airborne Combat Vehicle.  The 'Sagger' missile is located atop the gun barrel.
