Armored vehicles on the Boomerang platform will be finalized after testing

43
Tests of the latest armored vehicles on the Boomerang wheeled platform are proceeding in accordance with the approved schedule, Sergei Suvorov, a representative of the developer of the military-industrial complex, told Interfax.


Preliminary tests are underway, after which they will be refined and all possible identified deficiencies will be eliminated. After that, state tests will begin.
- Said the agency interlocutor. He added that the specific dates for the end of the tests are classified information.

Armored vehicles on the Boomerang platform will be finalized after testing


This is a unified platform, now we have a wheeled BMP K-17, wheeled BTR K-16. In the future, it is planned to create a whole family - BREM (armored repair and recovery vehicle), command vehicle, reconnaissance, anti-tank, depending on the request.
- Sergey Suvorov specified.

Evaluating the characteristics of the new armored vehicles, a company representative said that, compared to vehicles based on the BTR-80 with an additional payload in 2,5 tons, the Boomerang had this figure three times higher.

After the tests are completed, the Boomerang batch production schedules will be formed, which will be built in Nizhny Novgorod, Arzamas, Vyksa and Bryansk.

It should be added that in Russia two more promising platforms for armored vehicles have been developed. This is a heavy "Armata" and the average tracked platform "Kurganets-25", reports "RG-Force"

    Long experience. It is clear that new, but not so much. Fundamentally new technology in Boomerang is not traced (yet). Okay, the T-14 Armata, a completely new word is understood in armored vehicles, but in the Boomerang, what is so new and unusual that it will also be tested for years?

      You are an all-enforcer, a liberal, a navalnik, and a fifth column. We need to wait until it is brought to mind and in twenty years from the moment of development it will be launched in a series of several dozen cars a year in spite of the Americans, who will put in their pants when they see our miracle technique wink

      It is likely that the Boomerang is the first universal middle-class KBM in our country. Prior to this, we developed the line of lightweight KBM BTR-60-70-80, which has already exhausted itself to the BTR-90.
      Alas, all attempts to create an average 25-ton KBM low blood, slightly podshamaniv base BTR-80, ended in failure. And I had to do this KBM from scratch. Well, as from scratch - at first they wanted to buy the "feel" of the German Boxer - failed. But the Italians gave me to rummage in their "Centaur".

    New and unusual is its value. It is only for this that they pull the cat for a causal place, talking about the "trials". Money will appear for the purchase - the next day, the "test" will go into production lol

      Yes, trophies for 7,5 tons can be stolen - that's good. But the wheels remained from the previous BTR-s, and we remember, on the BTR-80 under load, they very beautifully fell apart.

    There is basically nothing new in wheeled armored vehicles. This is an attempt to catch up with the outgoing NATO train in this segment. Incidentally, I did not compare him with anything. And the fact that we have problems with finances - I think this is not a secret. This is precisely what is the main brake on re-equipment with qualitatively new models. The most recent example of such poverty is an order for TOTAL (!!!!!!!) pieces for 2018 a thousand times tested, re-tested BMPT Tepminator. For us, such an amount per year is a shame! They should be transferred so much to the troops per month! About more technologically advanced samples, I generally will not say anything.

      The creators of the BTR-90 also thought so. But it turned out that the base of our 8-wheeled armored personnel carriers does not withstand a further increase in the mass of the car with any modifications. A 25-ton APC certainly needs to be done from scratch.

    It’s clear that we pulled a crude car to the Parade, then we are testing, finalizing the design and components. It is realistically possible to discuss the advantages of the machine when they order the first batch for 50-60 aircraft. By this time, real performance characteristics will be clear

    So with a great desire, anything can be justified. BTR-90 was tortured for 10 years. Really did not notice obvious problems during this time and could not solve them? In this case, we have finished everywhere? Or maybe all the same there was no money for him?)) BMPT adopted the very Defense Ministry, which now, suddenly, ceased to understand what to do with it ?! Seriously?)) And here's another example, when we have 4➕➕ airplanes that have been flying 20-10 units a year for some 12 years, they’re doing something - who’s to blame? Do not break in again in any way or still buoy money? And the "aircraft carrier Storm" about which they made a noise and buried - how is it? Again, you say that it’s not from poverty, but that the Moscow region does not know what to do with it later?)) I can cite a lot of such examples. Money and only money decide everything.

      That's about the "Storm" You are absolutely right - no one understands what to do with it then, if you suddenly build a fool. But prestigiously, budgets are expected to be such that those who want to cut them simply blow down the roof, so it is possible that hundreds of billions will be thrown into nowhere. The aircraft carrier is unlikely to be completed, but the number of yachts and premium cars for some individuals will increase, no doubt.

        You also do not understand why aircraft carriers are needed? You may not believe me, but in the USSR the need for these ships was understood even before the Great Patriotic War, when they began to draw the designs of the first Soviet aircraft carriers. Even then, it was clear that a fleet in the ocean without air cover was doomed. And World War II only proved it.

      So there is only one problem - the old chassis is not suitable, there was no money for a new one. Plus, concept has changed - on the new armored personnel carriers, the MO began to demand access through the stern.

    But will such a zoo benefit? On the one hand, we are unifying in order to reduce development and maintenance costs, and on the other, we are multiplying the number of “unified” platforms themselves, which inevitably leads to the smearing of already small available resources for many projects, which dramatically increases the chances that none of them so they won’t bring to mind.

      “Armata” is, first of all, a tank. The Kurgan is a tracked infantry fighting vehicle. “Boomerang”, as it seems, is being created to fill a previously absent niche - wheeled protected middle-class armored vehicles (it is still impossible to compare it with the BTR-70/80, although the tasks are similar) you are not confused by the presence of tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, armored personnel carriers, armored vehicles how are the classes of armored vehicles?
