In the Future Russian Empire faction took Kurganets-25 vehicle and made heavy modification by adding new armor, weapons and systems. APC and MGS variants have fully automated turrets.
Kurganets-25 is a REAL WORLD ultra modern prototype vehicle that is currently in development by Russian Federation to replace BMP fleet somewhere in 2015-2016 . So the idea with Russian Empire design is not to base their vehicles on real world Soviet designs, but on prototype Russian designs. That way RUSK and Russian Empire vehicles will look Russian but different.
