  1. At least one of the BTR-60PBs appears to be a very late model with improved side doors.

    Also, the vehicle you describe as a 9P122 looks more like a 9P124 ATGM carrier vehicle with 4 radio-guided 9M17M “Skorpion-M” (AT-2B Swatter B) AT missiles. Note two launch rails on each side of the radio command guidance transmitter.
