Strange that they entered talks to buy Russian APCs if they wanted American stuff in the first place.
The huge irony of course is that fairly soon the Russians will start production of Boomerang-25 and there will be a lot of BTRs that are surplus to requirements in the Russian Army anyway.
Columbia probably wouldn't be interested in the older model BTR-60s but the BTR-82s might be worth looking at, but then of course they don't have US engines so they will probably have already started production of LAVs by then.
