Hi!

My english is poor, too. In according to Finnish Wikipedia and Finnish Army's homepage (www.mil.fi) the BMP-1 wagons were purchased 195 ones. Today here is left in service only 38 command wagons, BMP-1TJ. The rest of them has been or to be scrapped as old-aged.

I do not know, if is any BMP-1 wagons left in other Finnish military museums besides the Parola BMP-1. Someone of this forum's readers or moderator may know something more about the Finnish BMP-1.

Welcome! :D
