  1. I wonder if the guys commenting via facebook was working in the factory building these great machines? They surely seems to know a lot about their uses of steel and building process since the great patriotic war.

  2. trust me no one is jealous of russia.. more like we pity them there. their modern military equipment is from the last century if you compare it to western countries !!

    • Hmm, lets start comparing. This thing is amphibious, has modular multilayer ceramics armor, 360 deg cameras and unmanned remote controlled turret packing more heat then any other compatible unmanned turret. Your turn =)

      • Well, the Stryker does have a 105 mm unmanned turret on its MGS version, doesn’t it…?

        On a more serious note, though, they are going to mount unmanned turrets with a 30 mm gun on Strykers. Patria’s AMV and other APCs can equip similar turrets as well. Thus, Boomerang is about equivalent to any other currently operational western APC/AFV.

  3. Jeleous of Russia? Jesus christ, canuck, just set yourself on fire because you are insulting everyone’s intelligence here.

    • how intelligent are you exactly? what do you do for a living? judging by your language, I expect nothing more than a warehouse employee…

      • Yes, sir, I am a warehouse employee and you must be one of those high level education Phd’s in Russia, read like hundreds of books, you still don’t make any sense. have a nice day.

    • Yeah, I thought those vehicles looked huge…until it became apparent that they are actually crewed by munchkins.
