    First Samples of “Equipment of Future” “Ratnik” Admitted in Armed Forces

    The first prototypes of Russian military equipment for the “future soldier” “Ratnik” entered the armed forces, board member of the Military-Industrial Commission Oleg Martianov said on Thursday to RIA Novosti.

    “Ratnik” combines modern firearms, effective protection kits, reconnaissance and communications, in total about ten different subsystems.

    “Some examples of equipment were already supplied to the troops,” Martianov said.

    He noted that in February it must pass a meeting of the interdepartmental commission on equipment, which must decide on its final shape. One of the main issues of discussion will be the inclusion in equipment of AK-12 and AEK-971. The first series of equipment can enter the army in the spring of this year.

    Russia's Advanced Combat Gear to Be Equipped With Drone Connectible Kit

    Russia's state-of-the-art Ratnik (Warrior) infantry combat outfit will be equipped with a special kit to help soldiers connect to drones in order to obtain intelligence data.

    Russian soldiers will use new generation Ratnik combat gear in order to get in touch with unmanned aerial vehicles, among other tasks, media reports said.

    Developed by Russia's United Instrument Corporation, the kit consists of communications, data transmission and navigation means; the goal is to turn servicemen into part of a single combat system that may be controlled in automatic mode.

    The kit's "smart" element adds significantly to better tactical communication between soldiers, according to Sergei Skokov, United Instrument Corporation's general director.

    The corporation's chief designer Tatyana Ositskaya said, for her part, that in addition, the kit's high level of the automation will help speed up decision-making during combat engagements.

    "For example, the task of target-pointing is achieved within 30 seconds. This includes the time in which the target is detected and the transfer of the coordinates for the destruction of this target," Ositskaya said.

    In January 2015, it was reported that the first serial batch of Ratnik combat gear will be supplied to the Russian Armed Forces between March and April 2015.

    The development of the Ratnik combat outfit began in the early 2000s, with the first prototype presented at the MAKS air show in 2011.

    The equipment includes a new generation field uniform, protection means, firearms, sighting systems, as well as communication, navigation and combat control systems. Additionally, it includes backpacks, insulation material and camouflage capes.

    October 2014 saw the signing of a three-year contract for the supply of Ratnik combat gear to the Russian army.

    Range time with the PKM ammo backpack. The backpacks seem to be making their way around. I wonder if this system will become commonplace in the near future?

    More likely for short period special forces operations as during longer ops the back pack will be full of other stuff.

    Still a neat idea...

    and the ratnik is just.fcking.baller. tanking dragunov shots, being harder to see on thermals, and weighing a lot lighter than counterparts is enough for me to sell my left nut for it. but then there is this strelets stuff - now you have minimap of your surroundings that you can use to plan ambushes and other tactical sh!t.

    I still like the look of the AK-74M rifle over the AK-12 despite the numerous advantage offered by the new rifle.

    You can see that Russian troop equipment has improved by leaps and bounds from as early back as the 888 war. Quite a jump in to make in 6 years when a good portion of the equipment that they are carrying now was first seen in large numbers during the liberation of Krim. No doubt about it that the Russian army will become one of the best equipped over the coming years. russia

    If it came down purely to aesthetics I'd pick the Saiga MK 107. Hands down the most beautiful rifle I've seen so far.

    I think on the AK12 thread there is footage of the MK-107 being fired full auto with no perceptible muzzle climb... a nice rifle indeed.
