    emmm
    everything was fine, but for reasons of logistics needed to change the engine by a Russian American, but the Russians refused, and only 2 were built ...


    but acquired M1117, and it seems that is under negotiation LAV Striker, With MBT's ...

    A bit strange wanting an American engine in a Russian armoured vehicle, but then with the experiences with US components in Russian vehicles I guess the Russian side decided it simply wasn't worth the bother.

    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.

    Understand that most of the equipment of the Armed Forces of Colombia, in one way or another with American materials, the Russian engine just does not taste in the Navy, they wanted to change the engine and the Russians were not agree with that, Russian engine it is not impossible, if the Navy said it needed to do that is because it could, in addition to those BTR80 were built in Colombia ...

    but, they still (I think) that this current manufacturing license (I will find the data) ...
