SBCw5E6_6yUSputnik News has posted a brief article about the new Russian Kurganets BMP-25 infantry fighting vehicle.  The article features a picture of these vehicles rehearsing for the upcoming May 9th Victory Day parade.  The article notes that the Kurganets-25 weighs 25 tons and is protected with modular armor that can be adapted to meet specific mission requirements. It is armed with a 30mm cannon and four Kornet-EM anti-tank guided missile launchers, all of which will reportedly be controlled by an onboard automatic firing system capable of choosing its own targets. The turret is remotely operated by the three-man crew.  Full article here.
