"Boomerang" for the Marine Corps

26
As explained by the online edition of "News", The unique Russian armored personnel carrier" Boomerang "will be able to effectively act on the water surface during amphibious landing.


The armored personnel carrier was developed and is currently being tested by the Military-Industrial Company (MIC LLC). It was first presented to the public at the Army-2017 exhibition and forum. Before that, he was seen at the Victory Day parade on Red Square.
As stated in the Main Commissariat of the Navy, currently tactical and technical requirements for the armored personnel carrier "Boomerang", intended for the marines, are formed. Not only the ability to independently force small water obstacles, but also the ability to participate in an amphibious assault landing force beyond the 60 km from the coast is required. At the same time, in both cases, “Boomerang” should be able to effectively hit coastal targets of all types weaponspresented in the weapons complex.



The floating version of the Bomerang BTR is being tested. The appearance of the machine is still being finalized to meet the requirements of the customer, therefore it is premature to talk in more detail about its capabilities.

- said general director of the military industrial complex Alexander Krasovitsky.

To date, the rearmament of the marines is being carried out through the supply of the BTR-82A and 120-mm self-propelled artillery 2C31 "Vienna".

The plans for the development of the Navy fleet laid the construction of a series of new large landing ships of the Avalanche type. These ships will be able to deliver up to 60 units of light armored vehicles to the shore, land it on an unequipped shore through the bow ramp or transfer it to land using speed boats. As part of this work, the sailors ordered their own development of a promising combat vehicle instead of the classic armored personnel carriers, but due to limited funds, the work was not developed. "Boomerang" can be considered a compromise that will provide the marines with both seaworthiness of the vehicle upon landing from the water and increased firepower.

- explained the professor of the Academy of Military Sciences Vadim Kozyulin.

The front position of the engine in the Boomerang provides additional protection for the crew and the assault against the enemy’s bullets and grenades, as well as more convenient exit from the car through the stern ramp. Amphibious abilities of the vehicle are achieved by means of a sealed displacement armored hull and two water cannons located in the rear part of the BTR behind the wheels of the vehicle. Thanks to them, the moving speed of the 20-ton Boomerang on the water surface reaches at least 12 km / h.

"Boomerang" for the Marine Corps


Unlike the BTR-82A, the Boomerang can be equipped with various gearless combat modules with weapons of caliber from 12,7 mm to 125 mm. It is possible to install an anti-tank missile system. The modular principle of the acquisition of the machine allows you to offer it to almost any of the Russian law enforcement agencies. At present, the K-16 BTR and the K-17 wheeled infantry fighting vehicle have been developed. The completion of tests of the basic version of the Boomerang BTR is expected this year.

    ... a lot of good new products, including the Boomerang, but almost everything is in the testing phase or in unit production ... of course I would like to see a lot of the latest weapons developments already in the army, but the campaign, everything has its time ...

    For marines, the very thing is, with the BAIKAL module it will be gorgeous because 30 mm is rather weak when landing, and 125 is a lot for such equipment.

        But what vagaries are there ... For once. After all, earlier, including in the USSR, the MP was equipped with materiel on the "residual" principle. The same 2s1 “Carnation”, at one time, was transferred to the land, for the “unnecessary” of these. The good news is that now the situation has fundamentally changed. The same "Warrior" manned, moreover, before the others. Duc, how much you can "breast open" to fight. Effective, damn it, but in modern conditions, alas, not effective. hi

          Under EVERYTHING with your word, let me subscribe, Sasha! hi Although I’m Moreman, but Morpehov’s business is familiar and close to me, believe me ... I would deliver ALL the best and the most modern to you in the first place, even infringing on other (no less respected) types of troops ... But I’m not Commander-in-Chief ...

            Duc, now, it seems, is doing so. Moreover, given the total number of MPs, this does not require any global troubles, unlike the same mattresses, where the ILC is a kind of "state in the state." . Well, here you are right, - the Commander-in-Chief and the Minister of Defense decide. hi

      It would be interesting to see the 125mm module without a carriage!)) Unless from Almaty, with the BC carousel in the BO. But can he then swim in this form.

        So what? In my opinion, it's okay, it's a small price for mine protection. What was the height of the BTR-80 with the crew on the roof of the car?

      Greetings, Alexander hi
      Yes, it would be necessary, otherwise at 12 km / h yes at 60 km will be long laughing
      And then Kitaez as Americans high-speed (on the water) began to develop. request

    then they all underestimated the land, now we are sculpting some high-altitude monsters, so that it would be easier to hit?

      This is done for mine defense, and getting into the 80 and into it is equally easy. On flamethrower firing from my set, only 2 out of 47 people missed 80s. And here at least on armor do not sit on top.

    Yeah. You also want the opportunity to act with sea waves in 5 points. To dream so to dream.

    The floating version of the Boomerang BTR is being tested. And before that, the water cannons on it stood purely for decoration?

    For the sea, he would have more powerful engines. Perhaps water cannons, like on the Raptor.

    "Boomerang" for the Marine Corps
    - YES, YES, and YES again. For many indicators, this unified platform is best suited specifically for MP

      That’s for sure, he’s knee-deep. Seriously, Sergey, the BTR-90 with the rear engine, and the BMP, the BMP-3F, would be more suitable for the marines. But, our tough guys will get what they give, they don’t have their own Shaman, but it's a pity.

        No. If you choose between "budget" and "premium", I choose the latter. Especially with regard to the BMP-3F, I consider this machine only in the BMP-3MF version acceptable for the MP, and indeed for our army. The time of the "ordinary" "troika" passed about fifteen years ago.
