Panda announces three new Russian vehicles at once. They are expected to be available before end of the year.
The new vehicles are an Object 293 Kurganets-25 and two versions of the VPK-7829 Bumerang (BTR and APC).

The Kurganets-25 is a tracked infantry fighting vehicle.It will replace the BMP-1 and BMP-2, and It is fully-amphibious, armed with a 12.7mm machine gun. With a crew of three, it can carry seven equipped soldiers.

The Bumerang is being developed at the same time, an 8x8 wheeled Armoured Personal Carrier. The APC version shares the same turret of the Kurganets-25, however seems it can carry up to nine soldiers. The BTR version will be armed with a 30mm gun.

None of these vehicles have yet entered in service, therefore the final models may have differences from what has been seen until now.

As for the kits, only these CAD drawings in an unusual blue colour are released, however they already show some details and inclusion of photo etch parts. And probably wheels form a different material.

Panda, such a great series of upcoming releases. I would love to see the Typhoon a derivative on the Bumerang chassis added to the list. Panda has found its claws with all these coming on the heels of the Armata T15 release later this yeat as well
