    Putin's galoshes are advertised. And they need thousands of pieces, not just a few, for parades! Well, when? When cancer whistles on the mountain!

      1000? 10 pieces are enough for the parade!
      All Soviet galoshes will be spent and the descendants will sit with empty warehouses, although as descendants ... almost everything has been used up for a long time

    Well done! I think by 2025 the tests will be over, unless, of course, Putin wins the election.

    We state the fact that the cars were late for the war. If at all someone is going to prepare them for war, and not just make dough on high demand.

      Maybe not too late. According to its characteristics, the K-17 is very similar to the BMPT Terminator, which is now used there.

        The boomerang is expensive and huge in size (large target), weak in armament, for which such an unsuitable pepelats, it seems only to "saw" money. They have been sawing for five years already, and at the exit there are several samples for testing ... It is possible in an MBT tank (like the Israeli Merkava) to create the opportunity to place troops on 5-6 fighters with a separate exit, such a concept is successful, because good security and support by MBT weapons. First, the concept and applicability should go, that there are differences with the Boomerang on the main requirements.

    They were procrastinated for 8 years, the 2nd year of the war, and they are only now being tested! By the end of the year, they will accept it in any way with a bunch of shortcomings and errors, if only to launch at least something new into production and report that they work!
