This BTR-152.K at the Auto & Technik Museum Sinsheim has had the armoured covers over the windows et the armoured shutters in front of the engine compartment removed to comply avec the Kriegswaffen-Kontrollgesetz which regulates the ownership of véhicules blindés et weapons of war. Accordingly, chars, transportes de troupes blindés et canons automoteur on display at museums are stripped of their armoured protection over the engine compartment et the internal crew positions. Square sections of armour are cut out of hulls et turrets, et the holes are covered by thin sheet metal ou plywood. Done properly, the conversion is hardly noticeable on the outside.

The BTR-152.K is an important armoured personnel carrier based on the BTR-152.V3, using the motor und chassis of the ZIS-157 truck. In the early 1970s, the BTR-152 was superceded by the eight-wheeled amphibious BTR-60 in the armoured personnel carrier role, although it continued to serve in the Soviet and Russian army in a variety of other roles until 1993. The BTR-152 series of vehicles was widely exported, and many of these vehicles remain in service around the world, even if they have been relegated to reserve or national guard formations.
