The BA-64 is a small, lightly armoured, four-wheeled Soviet scout car. It can carry a Degtyaryov machine gun or PTRD anti-tank rifles. Nicknamed Bobik (a popular dog name/nickname) by Red Army crews, the vehicle has been widely exported.
The total recorded number of BA-64s produced differs even in Russian sources. The most frequently-stated figures are 9,110 (3,901 BA-64 and 5,209 BA-64B) vehicles which were built in the GAZ automobile plant, although a memorial plaque near the pictured Nizhny Novgorod car states 9,063 cars. The Red Armyrepresentatives accepted only 8,174 BA-64s, including 3,390 with radio sets; the other vehicles were transferred to NKVD units and Soviet allies. BA-64 inspired other military vehicles such as SK-1
