23rd April 2020 - 14:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Rosoboronexport has begun marketing its Bumerang 8x8 amphibious combat vehicle (ACV) overseas for the first time, the company reported in a 23 April statement.

The platform can perform a range of combat missions as well as peacetime operations. It can accommodate up to 11 soldiers with the troop compartment located at the rear of the vehicle. Access to the interior can be gained through a roof hatch, rear door or ramp.

Alexander Mikheev, director general of Rosoboronexport, said: ‘The uniqueness of the platform lies in the opportunity to build the widest range of vehicles on its base with various weapons and equipment.’

He continued: ‘African, Middle East, Southeast Asian and CIS countries have already shown an interest in Bumerang. We estimate exports of this platform in the foreseeable future at about $1 billion.’

Bumerang can be armed with a 7.62mm coaxial machine gun, a 30mm automatic cannon, a 30mm automatic grenade launcher, or a 12.7mm Kord machine gun.
