Many people call the Boomerang an armored personnel carrier. This is not true. The military-industrial complex-7829 "Boomerang" is a new unified wheeled platform, on the basis of which the K-16 armored personnel carrier and the K-17 infantry fighting vehicle have already been launched. The main difference lies in the combat modules installed on the machines.
The BMP K-17 is equipped with the Boomerang-BM unmanned remote combat module. He is also equipped with a heavy BMP T-15 based on "Armata", as well as BMP B-11 based on "Kurgants-25". The module consists of an 30-2 42 gun and four anti-tank missiles.
The K-16 BTR has a smaller combat module. Supposedly, it will be equipped with an 7,62-mm Kalashnikov PKTM machine gun.
