Two launchers of anti-tank guided missile Kornet-EM are mounted on each side of the turret. The Bumerang can engage all mobile or static targets by day and night at a maximum range of 5,500m.

This new version of theK-17 Bumerang seems to be fitted with new sensors mounted at the front on each side of the hull.
