So, if I understand correctly, BTR-60PB would have a very limited if null protection in NBC conditions?

Yes. Only protection against radioactive dust.

I think what he meant is that the firing ports do not maintain a proper seal when they are opened, unlike the firing ports in the BMP-1/2 and BTR-80 which have adaptors that fit over the barrel of an AK. This type can be used even in a contaminated environment, but of course, the barrel and muzzle of the rifle will become contaminated since it's on the outside...

Shooting through the ports has always been a controversial issue. How do we imagine a BTR in the contaminated area and who will shoot out there on the BTR?

 

And of course, the commanders could well choose whether to order BTR or BMP in to nuke zero point. Tracked vehicles were always the first choice for "Ascension Commands".
