There are persistent rumours that officials want to adapt the 57-mm gun to the wheeled infantry fighting vehicle on the unified Boomerang platform. But at the 2020 parade, the promising infantry fighting vehicle will come out in its usual form with the Epoch weapon module, featuring a 30-mm automatic gun, anti-tank missiles, and active defense.

The K-17 coupled with the K-16 armoured personnel carrier has already completed preliminary tests, and will go to the state in the summer of 2020. There are likely to be challenges because the Boomerang platform is designed from scratch; it has adjustable suspension, combined armour, amphibious systems, and powerful (up to 750 horsepower) diesel engines, and all those components need to work well together.
