Russian Boomerang IFVs Heading to the Frontlines Posted on February 28, 2023 by PrepHole Contributor Time for some good 'ole field testin'
As if NATO sky eyes haven’t already rendered the entire rail march at 8k 120fps.
You were driven out of eastern former ukraine by drunk miners with mosins
So they did better than the entire Russian army so far?
Said miners were losing until the russian intervention tho.
Shame they all got used as cannon fodder over the last year.
nice try vatnig. Ukraine is winning on their own though.
>NATO sky eyes
Like only clean war footage is coming from chink DJI drones.
Globohomo drone footage always looks like worn out VHS rental tape to the point it always needs narration to tell us wtf are we even looking at.
i see you misposted in /wtg/
timing is horrible.
Remember early in the invasion, how all the wheeled vehicles that Russia fielded kept losing their tires? I wonder if the ones on the boomerang were sourced from the same supplier....
They better install ERA or slat armor because these wheeled IFVs do not do well around ATGMs and ATRs
>wheeled IFVs do not do well around ATGMs
nothing does well against ATGMs
and yet it's still better than the bongistan Warrior IFV
what a weird post. i'd expect a vehicle built in 2020 to be better than a vehicle built in 1972.
>vehicle built in 1972.
you are cutting warriors too much slack
warriors production started in 1986
6 years after bmp2
>VBCI/Styker at home
>"Testing" your parade vehicles, in a warzone, what's the worst that could happen?
need slat armor and wheel armor. quick!
I hope they'll just put cope cages on them.
looks like don't fall off from vehicle while drunk" cage
dismount climbing gym
What the hell are the rear dildos
Counter-IED ECM antennas.
Careful you don't summon warriortard and his insecurities about British stuff.
It needs tracks. The Stryker probably can't handle some "improved surfaces" in eastern Europe.
>a finger curls on the monkey's paw
Well I fucking hate that.
Where the fuck do they get off calling it boomerang, that's our word, thieving cunts.
Words are fungible, deal with it
OI! Quiet up, you!
nice beret mon ami!
Berets should not be associated with the Frogs, if anything they should be an Italian or German thing
emiggers get the spear first
why are we only seeing them now?
Because they're running out vehicles and are shitting themselves over bradleys
Gloves were still on. May still be, we can't be sure yet.
Because they're in the same category as the BTR-50A's. Aka the shit we tossed at the frontline because we don't have enough "modern" (BMP-1P) IFV's, so we'll through in gun trucks, museum pieces like the 50A, or prototypes with the production run of 20 and zero parts and training interchangeability, because the alternative for the infantry would be attacking on foot over a range of several kilometers, which in this day and age just means being exterminated by mortar and drone attacks without achieving anything at all. Not that they achieve much with vehicles, but at least they have a chance them; it's their problem they squander it due to every other element of Russian MiC being completely rotten to the core.
>[aggressively drives into mines]
Another Russian victory over Ukrainian mines. Completely obliterated.
Finally we get to actually see something from all the things that Russia put on parade.
They wouldn't fucking just paraded these into a forest and fire at some trees before fucking off for good, right?
Insectoid Sina Xi has the Chinese century that the West doesn't want you to know about.
*Chinese century starts*
*China allies with Russia*
*Chinese century ends*
Ended with COVID lol. Their own lab leak. Authoritarians are always their own worst enemy.
it was ours though
How many of those do they even have?
at least 5
So the military parade in some weeks will be all retro memories of the ww2?
eh they'll just do a propaganda video of them on the frontlines and then move them back to Russia
Ah, the good, ol' Mi-26 switcheroo.
Propaganda pic showing helicopter doing a hot drop from a couple of meters where it started.
>Russian media reporting "reinforcements coming in to stop Ukraines Kharkiv offensive"
>Shows images of "tanks unloading"
>Its actually just unloading and loading again
>mi26 is used to fake reinforcements into ukraine in order to trick vatmorons that they're winning
If I was a russian I'd literally just put a gun in my mouth cause I can't win against the entirety of the world including every single other russian
God I hope so, that would be kino
Also when is the "Russia running out of shit" meme gonna die? is it just NATO projecting?
Russia did not have much shit to begin with. Exhausting inherited Soviet stock is all they have been doing.
Modern Russian military equipment is few and far between except for the parade ground.
Isn't it dead already? since it's no longer a meme since Vágners fight over ammo with regular troops so much they started gore posting themselves
Russia 'running out of shit' does not equate to 'run out of shit'. The fact they are bringing in prototype/non-production models suggests that they are indeed 'running out of shit'. We saw 50's APCs being deployed. That isn't what you expect from the 2nd greatest army in the world. Imagine the USA rocking up to China in M75's.
Anon, they wouldn't be sending BTR-50 and T-62 with ERA blocks slapped on if they weren't running out of shit
you can cross out the ERA blocks on the t-62s because they're not even bothering anymore with their latest iteration. tbf its not like ERA has been saving their armor anyway.
It russians weren't such gays, they would do a retro parade from the very start. Parade to show off "muh strong military" is sign of pathetic 3rd world dictature.
If they made some historical parade with nice looking t-34 it would actually make sense
Don't worry, they'll still have a few T-14s break down on parade like every year
Really scraping the bottom of the barrel here
boomerang because how quickly they come back from the front?
Just like the famed terminator, it'll die hilariously for our entertainment
broh a r u retard? Y
That's not a terminator
They were suppose to received the 'first batch' in 2019 for trials. It still hasn't had official certification yet. It'd be weird for them to deploy a tank that literally hasn't been given the greenlight in the military. But I dunno how many a 'batch' is. Half a dozen? A dozen? 20?

The guy in charge of the factory for them stole the money, he got arrested recently.
classic vatnick corruption
Is that name after the turret because it can fly really high then come back down?
Nah, it's because of how they advance back towards you after being captured by farmers.
So I just checked this thing out and it's just a wheeled BMP-2 with pottery armour.
Just making more BMP-2s would have been the better option here, surely?
They may have wanted wheeled options to expand on their operational mobility, which we've all seen is far from Russia's strong suit
Does it bounce back?
The Boomerang is the perfect example of what a poverty stricken shithole Russia is.
>much poorer than it is now
>"we need an new wheeled IFV to replace these shitbox BTR's"
>orders 1197 Rosomak (Patria) IFV's
>not as poor as Poland
>"we need a new wheeled IFV to replace these shitbox BTR's"
>gets ~20 Bumerang
Pathetic is too weak a word to use here.
>not as poor as Poland
>"we need a new wheeled IFV to replace these shitbox BTR's"
>gets ~20 Bumerang and 50 yachts
What's wrong with the BTR? Seems like a perfectly solid platform and it blew apart many a Ukranian and a few Russians too if you count the Ukranian BTR-4
I think it depends on the BTR series they're meant to replace.
Some of the earlier models had the troops crawl out of hatches barely larger than a person in the top of the vehicle, which obviously takes a while as equipment often gets jammed in the hole if you're not careful.
side dismount is an issue.
As opposed to rear dismounts where everyone dies to one drone grenade? Kek
>whats wrong with this cramped soviet era shitbox that cant stop 7.62 and has zero mine protection
>and its shitty soviet era gun
>and shitty post-soviet electronics
Anon asking the hard questions
>What's wrong with the BTR?
The meme answer is 'Yes'.
The slightly less meme answer is 'Depends on the version'
In no particular order:
The doors are too small, the early version had idiotic side doors, the dual engines were not very good to put it mildly, the armament varied between pointless amchinegun and cannon that takes up too much space while having no optics, the internals were too cramped, there is no protection against mines, the driver can choose between being not protected and not seeing shit.
The rael upside is that they're resistant to rifle caliber machine gun fire, have a heavy machine gun in a turret and that they go pretty fast on roads.
So yeah, you might just as well get a Mercedes Minibus and a Toyota Hilux with an HMG. You'll be slightly less resistant to enemy fire, but you will be faster and have more comfortable seats.
that is the definitely one of the IFVs of all time
A digital fire control system, a battle management system, and advanced communications equipment allows it to operate effectively in complex and dynamic battlefield environments.
The question is how much more expensive is it compared to the BTR and can it be mass produced effectively?
How many of those they have?
