They should develop it like they developed Kornet-M, where the body of the vehicle has spare missiles and a loading mechanism, and because it is VSHORAD it needs persistence to defeat oncoming threats to compensate for it's short range. 12 missiles are cool but 48 (12 loaded, 36 missiles in the cabin) are better. The only way to justify the lack of this measure is if they decided to use the cabin to store a very large fuel tank. The standard BMP-3 chassis has a 600km range, and if they decide to use the cabin for extra fuel, it should have no less than 1500-2000km range.
