Regarding former USSR BTR usage in conflict, some questions for experts from PW

How Many operational BTRS did the SAA(Syrian Arab army) have in 2011, and which types?
Does it use them in the civil war and how are they deployed?




BTR (БТР), from Bronetransportyor (Russian: бронетранспортёр; Ukrainian: бронетранспортер; literally "armoured transporter"), is any of a series of Soviet or post-Soviet military armoured personnel carriers
