Armored vehicles on the Boomerang platform will receive a new combat module

A new combat module will be developed for the Russian Boomerang platform, instead of those currently used. This was reported by TASS with reference to the Director General of Military-Industrial Company Alexander Krasovitsky.


A new combat module will be developed for the Boomerang platform, as well as the entire line of military equipment manufactured by the company, and a contract for the work has already been signed. It is assumed that the new BM will receive a 57-mm caliber gun, coaxial machine gun and ATGM, however, the final configuration of its armament will depend on the customer and the expected combat missions.

We signed a contract with one of the Russian companies and begin to make our own combat module (...) The module will be with all kinds of weapons and ATGM control channels: if necessary, Ataka; if necessary - "Cornet". Everything will depend on the wishes of a particular customer and the capabilities of the chassis.

- said Krasovitsky.

The press service of the company emphasized that the new combat module will be created for the entire line of wheeled armored vehicles manufactured by the company.

Depending on the type of armored vehicle and its carrying capacity, the new combat module will have a different configuration of the set of weapons installed on it

- said in a statement.

Note that at present, various combat modules from different manufacturers are installed on the armored vehicles manufactured by the military-industrial complex. The K-17 BMP undergoing testing in the basic version is equipped with the Epoch BM with a 30-mm automatic gun, a coaxial 7,62-mm machine gun and Kornet anti-tank missiles. BTR K-16 is equipped with a combat module with a 12,7-mm machine gun.

    And how many Boomerangs are already in the troops? Or again, as usual, the keyword "will"?

      Ну тут претензии не к конструкторам, а к финансированию и приоритетам армии. У нас например для "Намера" разработали прекрасный башенный ДУМ, который устанавливается на существующие платформы за 48 часов , но армия пока не выразила заинтересованости в его массовой закупке. Бюджет не резиновый, а приоритеты закупок другие.

        Well, here the claim is not to the designers, but to the financing and priorities of the army.

        So he only left the stage of factory tests, he had not yet passed military non-state ones. So something like this

          интересно через 20 лет что то изменится? явно кто то занимает не свое место в руководстве направлений , бумеранги уже 6-7 лет как построены,а для принятия в армию и начала серийного
          pro-va so nothing essentially has been done

      Only preliminary tests of experimental (!) Samples have been completed. Based on their results, comments and recommendations were put forward for revision, only after this state test and adoption. You will study the question of what is OCD for the development and production of a model of weapons and military equipment.

      Не поверите, прочитав заголовок решил даже не читать статью, а сразу съязвить точно так же, но вы меня опередили.
      In recent years, we have been constantly developing something, getting new modules, etc. having no analogues in the world of weapons, not life, but a fairy tale, or rather a virtual army. But in practice, during this month (and in fact two weeks), two decommissioned submarines were drowned, a helicopter, Tu22, a raptorodava crashed and fairy-tailed burned the Kuzyu.
      Personally, I’m a little offended (((

    That is, no specifics. The module will be, but which one is not clear.

    Obviously, 30 mm no longer takes BMP / BTR “partners” into the forehead. The transition to 57 mm is an obvious step. A projectile with a controlled detonation of 30 mm, so propelled by our military industrial complex, simply does not make sense in terms of power and price. And in 57 - is another matter. And it makes no sense to pile on 30 mm Boomerang / Kurganets platforms on expensive platforms.

      So, then the approach itself is so-so.

      While the French and the British mass-produce new generation cannons with telescopic ammunition (which reduces the required volume for the shell box for example).

      Then they took a 60 or 70-year-old cannon, screwed a new muzzle on it, altered it here and there, changed the supply of shells and that’s it. I will assume that in the requirements to shoot everyone, including Stalin shells from the reserve depots.

      First, let at least a 125mm caliber controlled detonation be done. There’s nothing for the tanks to fight, but they’re cutting budgets with wunderwafes ...
      And the 57mm gun is not only too heavy, but also the small ammunition is small -> i.e. to put them without compromising security is simply impossible -> again a return to light tankettes with a tank landing on the armor ... but with a 57mm gun.

        At 57mm, the mass is much more than that of the twin 100mm + 30mm BPM-3. But the advantages over such a pair are doubtful.

    I don’t understand why to develop a new module when there is a wide range of products already made for every taste and color. Another cut of the dough? From the point of view of production, maintenance and operation, unification with BMP and BMD suggests itself

    The main task is to increase the power of the ammunition and the range of its confident launch, which will expand its use. The main means of combating armored objects have long been no tank guns / BMP / BTR, for this it is full of specialized anti-tank weapons. Telescopic ammunition is a direct-shot weapon, which is now very rare.

    Interesting After the "derivation" is also 57mm. And what about the mob warehouses with ammunition of this caliber? Perhaps some decision was made on them and they can be used after certain manipulations?

    Сделали бы на основе 2а42 37-40мм орудие ..и с 4мя корнетами , модуль закрыл бы все потребности. У Корнета есть очень мощный ОФ боеприпас .

      Intermediate calibers between 30 and 57 economically and even greater stupidity. In a week (for example), protection on light armored vehicles will be able to keep 45 ... and?

        And an increase in caliber increases the size and weight of the installation itself and its ammunition. Increases platform load .....

          Cornet has a very powerful HE munition.

          Cornets on modules for hitting armored vehicles, and the use of high-explosive warhead missiles limits the anti-tank capabilities of these modules.
          The infantry also has facilities with "very powerful HE ammunition"

            But you can complete 4pcs of PUs based on the task .... either by Cumulative or PF .... and for the last 30 years there have been local conflicts without tank battles.

                BMP and armored personnel carriers are Fri means with a stretch .... only from shelter and they are an additional Fri means. This is not the main task for light BT. And if this task is set by the commander, then equip ATGMs and forward.

    57 mm cannon of new ballistics, FCT, 8 presumably kinetic small ATGMs, 4 presumably "Cornets".

      What is this "new ballistics"? LSHO-57 has the usual low ballistics. Like a grenade launcher. In fact, this is a grenade launcher. It's just that his grenade has a power like 82mm mines.

        New means not ballistics s-60.
        If by LShO-57 is meant AGS-57, then no, the trunk is much longer there. Khlopotov compared ballistics with Hotchkins.

    Looks like it ... there’s also no Boomerang in fact, and all its "lines .. modules have already been bred - everyone who is too lazy to compose them .. Now we still have to compose .. - more goods, good and different!

    Why do we need a large-caliber gun and a small rate of fire on an armored personnel carrier / infantry fighting vehicle? Better on the contrary to increase the rate of fire, and the caliber can even be reduced. The ideal option is to put a complex of guns from Shilka or a Gatling gun. Rapid fire cannon is much more effective against infantry, and in order to knock out other armored vehicles it is much better to use ATGMs and tanks. IMHO.
