The BA-64 was a Soviet four-wheeled armoured scout car. Built on the chassis of a GAZ-64 or GAZ-67 jeep, it incorporated a hull loosely modeled after that of the Kfz.221. The BA-64 was developed between July and November 1941 to replace the BA-20 then in service with armoured car units of the Red Army.
