BTR K-16 and BMP K-17 based on "Boomerang" received export passports

47

At the Aero India 2021 exhibition of arms and military equipment that opens in India, for the first time in a foreign format for Russia, the latest technology on the Boomerang platform will be demonstrated. This technique, along with nearly two hundred other samples, is sent by Rosoboronexport to an exhibition in Bangalore, India. In turn, this suggests that Boomerang has an export version. This information is confirmed by the general director of the Military-Industrial Company Alexander Krasovitsky.


In the interview TASS he noted that the K-16 wheeled armored personnel carrier and the K-17 infantry fighting vehicle based on the Boomerang had received export passports. Alexander Krasovitsky notes that there is already a great interest from foreign potential customers in this Russian military equipment.

For the first time, the Boomerang was presented to the general public at the Victory Parade on May 9, 2015 in Moscow. The first deliveries of such equipment to the troops were expected in 2019, but then the dates were shifted.

The unified wheeled armored platform "Boomerang" can be used as a basis for various types of equipment. As already noted, today it is the K-16 armored personnel carrier and the K-17 BMP. The BM "Epoch" is installed on the K-16. The main armament of this combat module is a 30-mm automatic cannon. Also among the weapons - a 7,62 mm machine gun and ATGM "Kornet".

Open sources say that the Boomerang's engine is a 750-strong YaMZ-780, capable of accelerating an armored vehicle up to 100 km / h on the highway and up to 10 km / h on water.

    Well, well, maybe someone will order a batch and it will go, with BMP 3 it was the same.

      The first deliveries of such equipment to the troops were expected in 2019, but then the dates were shifted.




      Starting with the demonstration of several cars at the Victory Parade in 2015, various dates were indicated for the appearance of new armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles on this platform in the troops, but all of them ended up being intermediate.

                But seriously, you didn't understand anything from the comment. Since a vis-a-vis appeals to some kind of "unambiguously valid laws", then a reasonable question arises: what happened to them on the territory of the USSR and why did not the Lada become a Mercedes?

                And no need to nod at fiat. Nobody forced him to choose. Why didn't you choose a Mercedes or a BMW? And why didn't the "laws" by themselves work? Only because of them it should have turned out at least as good.

                The whole canoe is that as soon as they have an analogue, they shout at the top of their lungs "thieves! They themselves do not know how to copy anything!" In which we so love to reproach the West

                  Are you not friends with reality at all? Mercedes has historically specialized in business and luxury cars. "Penny", like all its derivatives, is the maximum B-class in modern terminology. For its time, it is not even bad.
                  Nobody forced him to choose. Why didn't you choose a Mercedes or a BMW?

                  Because the USSR did not produce, especially in large quantities, luxury goods.
                  Still to explain why the Khrushchevs built and not Manhattan skyscrapers or villas, as on the Cote d'Azur?
                  And why didn't the "laws" by themselves work?

                  I mean, didn't work? Well, look at modern basins, are they very different from other cars in their class?
                  It all worked. Only if we are talking about consumer goods, then, apart from the laws of physics, there are still laws of economics ... Well, there can be no mass production of luxury goods in a poor country.
                  Double standards, monsieur. In which we so love to reproach the West

                  There must be a joke about spies and scouts.
                  This is normal.
                  It is normal and correct to copy successful solutions.
                  It is also normal and correct to be proud of your technical achievements.
                  And to praise your own and not your enemies is also normal and correct.

                    you are not friends with reality. Rather, you do not know nifiga. Mercedes produced (and produces) the entire line of cars, from small cars and B class to luxury models. But even for some reason, his mini and sedans for the middle class are better. Better quality.

                      Lord, where are you so clever and omniscient coming from? In what year did Mercedes start producing small cars, and in what year did the economy class? And in what year did they start producing a penny? Nothing that between these events of 40 years?
                      What kind of heresy are you writing? Is it a victim of the exam?

          This is no longer the newest design ... they also looked at the BTR80 and added their own ... and approached the issue more broadly. Based on the Stryker, this BTR with a .50 cal, with a 30mm cannon and a turret, with a 105mm PT gun, with a TOU complex, a medical vehicle, a command vehicle and some other ... and compare m BTR 80 (and it is at a good time produced.)

      Well, here's the question, the competition in the niche is hellish.

      For those who do not have pennies - there are loans from Chinese banks, including complex ones, at the level we build a railway for 500 km + infrastructure + locomotives and wagons + buy 300-400 million weapons from us to upgrade the army. Model Contract for Africa. Well, or as in Venezuela and to eat and renew the army.


      For those who have pennies, but the reputation is not very good, there is the ageless Patria AMV.


      Fans of experimentation, bold solutions and unusual requirements buy Pandurs - just like Indonesia.


      Well, the technology leader - for whom there is a queue of orders, the German wunderwaffe Boxer. It was bought by another traditional ROE client, Algeria, to replace the BTR-70-80.


      Pros of the named platforms:
      - Operation history. In the same Patria, she is generally great.
      - Variety of designs. Wheeled tank. Nurse. Engineer. KP. And even a platform for the MD air defense system. Well, in general, for every taste and already in hardware, not 3D model.
      - No purchase penalties.
      - Maintaining delivery times, because everything is fine-tuned. Well, except that you have to stand in line for Boxer.

          In the sense of abandoning modularity? Armament is modular - put what you want, well, within certain limits, of course. The troop compartment - it seems to be a compartment, and if you want to carry the trooper, you want something else. And in fact, the platform does not really need any other modularity ... well, there is only a little extra armor attached to it, but with it a little crap.

            on Boxer, see how it is implemented there. If you don't understand what a modular design is. There is a basis, the so-called. a base that is unchanged on all vehicles, and on which an additional one can be installed - various bodies, fighting compartments, etc. on the same chassis with minimal manipulations, like from a Lego designer, we get an armored personnel carrier, an armored personnel carrier, an infantry fighting vehicle, a medical vehicle, a KShM, a SPTRK, a self-propelled mortar and much more

If we remove all the information garbage, then in the case of "boomerang VS boxer" our developers decided to abandon the "modularity of the body" replacing it with "standardization of the body and modularity of the filling".

            "Modularity" is an insidious thing! It is good up to certain limits, beyond which it turns into its opposite: instead of reducing the cost and simplifying the design, it only leads to its rise in price (in production and maintenance), shortening the life cycle and deteriorating characteristics (both combat and operational) ... ...
            Particularly careful in this matter is to approach armored vehicles ...

              nonsense. This only means that you do not understand the meaning of the term. And, well, yes, it is better (and much cheaper!) To redo the entire structure than to replace some part (module). Especially for you, it is necessary to make the wheels non-removable - otherwise, you will think of something else to change them!

              "Everything is good in moderation, and for everyone this measure is different" - "modularity" requires a high level of analytical support in the project, but in practice, it is analytics that no one is engaged in or is engaged in purely for show (for example, when analytics are shifted to engineers / scientists / military controllers, and in the end they mostly do their main business, and not analytics, and of course, the result is complete garbage ).

      I think you are wrong. Most likely, the absence of this technique in the troops is considered not critical. In 2015, few could have guessed the quantity and quality of the same drones. Here the funds were thrown in there. And here the situation is with a planned replacement, and even the engine will be stronger. Let them sell them, and we will use these funds to rearm.

In Yaroslavl, it is not the first year that large YMZ-650 "rowers" have been assembled, but they are licensed (Renault DXi 11) and leave no room for development both in terms of capacity and ecology. Therefore, the volume of production is not large - this year there are 2000 copies. The new motors will be completely original, the Austrian company AVL only helped to choose the dimension.

      The first YaMZ-2018 will appear in 780 by order of the Ministry of Defense: it will develop up to 730 hp, and prototypes of the second stage are already being prepared. If everything goes according to plan, then the state acceptance is ahead. And by 2020 this engine will turn into a civil YMZ-770 (370-550 hp,

        With tolerances of 0,4 micron, these pumps will be gold in value. Something such tolerances have not met in practice.

          They wrote this on the BMPT website ..... but high-pressure pumps for modern diesel engines were not particularly produced in our country before. Usually they put BOSH everywhere. In parallel, KAMAZ sculpts a diesel based on Liebherr of similar power

    Competition in the wheeled vehicle market is very high. So, if only in the EAEU and, possibly, SEA it will be possible to sell (the V-shaped front is similar to that of amphibians).
