Russia’s cutting-edge ‘indestructible APC’ could be sold abroad

One of Russia’s newest state-of-the-art war machines, the extra-safe Bumerang APC, with outstanding active and passive defense systems, is undergoing state trials. If the Kremlin gives the nod, the manufacturer is ready to supply it to foreign armies.

The Bumerang is a next generation APC with a remote-controlled weapon station, an advanced control complex and layered active and passive defense systems, Aleksandr Krasovitsky, director general of the Military Industrial Company (MIC, Voyenno-Promyshlennaya Kompaniya), told RIA Novosti.

Over 40 Russian research and development companies have been taking part in creating Bumerang, yet most of the work was performed by MIC’s Military Engineering Center.

Foreign clients have already expressed interest in placing orders for the new APC, Krasovitsky said.

“If we get government authorization, we’re ready to sell it abroad,” he added.

The Bumerang amphibious armored eight-wheeler is to replace Soviet-designed personnel carriers BTR-80 and BTR-90. Most of its characteristics are still classified.
