The KPVT for the BTR-60 and BRDM-2 is missing this ammunition, it's an HE round that's been in service with the gun since it's inception. It's standard issue in conjunction with the current AP rounds. http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/USSR/soviet_BRDM-2.php

Are you saying it would have 1 round AP then 1 round HE? there is currently no way on the engine to alternate ammunition types, from what i remember anyway but you would need someone to confirm.
best you would have would be to give it a multipurpose ammo. or give it the 2 ammo types and split the ammo between them, but then the KPVT was only ever meant to have a single ready belt of 500 rounds loaded.
No I'm saying that along with the AP belts HE belts are issued, so functionally it could be a scroll wheel option to switch to HE ammo. Although I wouldn't be surprised if such mixed ammo belts existed.
http://www.tanks-encyclopedia.com/coldwar/USSR/soviet_BRDM-2.php Here's my source, and the ZPU series are the dual and quad mountings of the KPV for anti-aircraft use. It's the same gun in the BRDM-2 and BTR-60 (so the ammunition is interchangeable), just as KPVT is just a designation for the vehicle mounting of the KPV gun.
From this point, everything is correct, but on the other hand I have not found anywhere that the military would use this ammo in BTR-60 or BRDM-2. I will add ammo to config but to add this ammo to BRDM-2 or BTR-60 use script, since BIS did not present dynamic loadout for ground vehicles.
According to some internet data MDZ ammo may be used in belts in format API-T-AP-API-T-MDZ and used more for indication purpose (as it makes visible flash on hit). For ZPU there are MDZ-T-MDZ belts.
Guess we need to wait for some scipted framework for mixed belts, because it's not like MDZ-only belts are usual loadout for APC/Tank
@Urban It can't be done like it is for vehicles with autocannons, where you have a scroll wheel option to switch to the HE ammo? And @Dusin according to that source it says the such rounds were used since the KPVT is a good AA gun against helicopters, something that it would've expected to see in combat later on in the Cold War.
All other NATO HMGs do (and even then there are HE rounds for the .50), but it would add a level of authenticity to the weapon. Not to mention a fair bit more usefulness to the BTR and BRDM vehicles.
