The stats and points costs are the same as the earlier BTR-60 released by BF. Just wanted to make these since I have quite of few (14) of them from Khurasan:

Looks good. Likely might pick some Zvezda 1/100 BTRs soon as able.

HI,

Do you have a template for doing this cards?

I am looking for doing Mi8/17 and BMD cards

Here you go Dominique.

It's not a template per se and you need to have some working knowledge of MS Powerpoint. Download and insert the blank jpegs of the BMD card (front and back) below into a blank Powerpoint slide. Make it nearly as big as the slide itself. Then insert text boxes and pictures as required to make cards for the BMD-1, BMD-2, etc. I already put in the profile silhouettes and armor values so you just have to add the relevant information on both sides.

After you're done, save the Powerpoint slides as jpegs, crop around the edges with any picture editing tool and reinsert them into Powerpoint. Resize the inserted pics to 3.12" x 4.29" in Powerpoint to match the TY card dimensions and print (in Powerpoint). I laminate them after this. Before I print, I flip one side of the card upside down right on top of the other side. This way you can cut it out as one piece then fold it right down the middle before laminating. Below are a couple of examples.

I'll post the MI-8/MI-17 card in a new thread since that was easier. You can use that as a visual guide to experiment with you own cards.
