Russia’s latest Bumerang armored personnel carrier caught fire during a massive military parade at Moscow’s Red Square on Wednesday.

Multiple people tweeted photos and video of the scene when the newest Russian combat vehicle caught fire.

The Bumerang is the latest standardized wheeled platform for multiservice forces developed by Military Industrial Company. The platform was used as the basis for developing the K-16 armored personnel carrier, and also the K-17 infantry fighting vehicle unveiled for the public at the Victory Day Parade in Moscow’s Red Square.

The new modular combats vehicle was the pride of the Russian defense industry. Russia also has started to promote the export of armored vehicles based on the latest Bumerang combat platform, with their sales estimated at about $1 billion, the press office of Russia’s state arms seller Rosoboronexport reported in April.

As Rosoboronexport CEO Alexander Mikheyev said, countries of Africa, the Middle East, Southeast Asia and the CIS have already displayed their interest in the Bumerang combat vehicle.

“We estimate the export of this platform at about $1 billion in the foreseeable future,” the press office quoted the Rosoboronexport chief as saying.

The Bumerang combat platform has been developed on order from Russia’s Defense Ministry. As its unique advantage, the platform can be used as the basis to build the widest range of vehicles with various weapons and equipment, Rosoboronexport stressed.
