Military Industrial Company (VPK), a Russian manufacturer of armored military vehicles, is set to design its own combat module for its products, including the advanced standardized wheeled platform VPK-7829 Bumerang.

The module will have "varying configurations of weaponry" based on the type of armored vehicle and "may be fitted with a large-caliber automatic gun of up to 57mm" in the future, the CEO Alexander Krasovitsky told TASS news agency on Tuesday.

Back in the summer, Boomerang underwent testing and was used earlier, for developing the infantry fighting vehicle and armored personnel carrier for the Russian Military, displayed at the Moscow's Victory Day Parade in 2015.
