EDIT: it does have a turret. Still not a tank.
EDIT2: the main armament is a machine gun. Totally not a tank.
the title is still misleading. when you read the title you really think the guy actually bought a tank. most people, even military amateurs, don't know what a BRDM2 is. it could have been a 70s tank.
Press will write "Poland to buy 1000 tanks". Inside the article 100 tanks and 900 support vehicles, most of them wheeled.
So if you don't like what he did, its a tank.
syrians built their own armored vehicles.
