    No, both were accepted for a good reason. AK-12: Cheap and simple design meant for conscripts. AEK-545: More complex (due to higher capability), and more expensive, thus better suited for hardened combat special operators. There was plenty enough reasons to to bring both in to acceptance (something I predicted), both with pros and cons.

    Nope both rifles are still on state trials for mass issue (only supposedly tha A545 has been done with, no more modifications have been added for mass production). The AK12 has also more or less been finalized for mass production. Initially some said that the A545 wasn't tested anymore since October of last year. This for a reason, the rifle "doesn't need any more features". This could also simply mean that the MO doesn't want to take a mass risk with the A545 and will rather clear it of service, but possibly not mass field it (a known story at Kovrov).

    at 10:56 you can see Fort.ru's logo on the plate. I have tried to access the website for over a year and it has been "under construction" for forever. No time to update the website I suppose. So I take it the company made the kevlar vest then, no? What is the name of it?

    The new technology will allow to receive and transmit signals without extraneous noise and in high quality

    "The development utilizes the latest technology - transmission of sound through bone headphones When a fighter says or accept commands, sound is not through the ears and traditional microphones, and through the bones of the head, so to speak -.. Through the temples are transmitted vibrations, which are read by the equipment. Thus, fighter has the ability to simultaneously receive radio commands and hear everything that happens on the battlefield, "- a spokesman said.

    There are some products that use bone conduction audio on the market, but I don't think I've ever seen it used by a military.

    Has anyone here used headphones like this before? My understanding of it is that by leaving the ears open, a user can still hear their surroundings, and transmissions are supposed to sound as if the person is right next to you.

    Russian Scientists Working on Third Generation 'Future Soldier' Gear

    According to the head of Russia's Advanced Research Fund, Russian scientists are working on creating third generation "future soldier" equipment.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian scientists are working on creating third generation "future soldier" equipment, or Ratnik-3, the head of Russia's Advanced Research Fund told Sputnik.

    "Work on the Ratnik-2 is carried out by the Defense Ministry, while we are working on, so to say, Ratnik-3," Andrei Grigoriev said.

    Railguns will be truly effective no sooner than in 50 years, and recent news on US railgun tests are likely related to the military budget process, the head of Russia's Advanced Research Fund said.

    "The issue of effective railgun use will probably take another 50 years to decide," Andrei Grigoriev said.

    "Work in this direction has been carried out for 50 years already and I wouldn't react strongly to recent publications. I think that there is a usual struggle in the United States on the approval of the military budget, they need to showcase some sort of scientific and technological achievements," he added.

In particular, much attention of visitors attracted new protective kit for the crews of armored vehicles 6B48 "Warrior-EK", entered service two years ago.


    From the explanatory material of the Moscow Center of high-strength materials "Armokom" know that the package is designed to protect the crew fighting vehicles from the effects of secondary fragments in the crew compartment, open flame, thermal effects, and protect the knee and elbow joints against mechanical damage.

    A first protective body armor structure used bronepaket hybrid based on traditional ballistic fabrics in combination with the nonwoven materials of aramid fibers.

    The kit includes: Ballistic vest broneshlemofon, fireproof overalls (summer and winter).

    Ballistic resistant vest V50% for at least 550 m / s. The area of ​​protection of body armor at least 45 sq.dm., weight - no more than 3.2 kg.

    Maybe instead of 'one size fits all camo', the US military should go back to the concept of background specific camo lol!

    New Russian Body Armor 30% Lighter, Make Soldiers Intellectual Fighting Machines

    The Russian Defense Ministry and the Russian State Corporation Rostec are developing brand-new bulletproof vests due to be made of ultra-light and high-strength material.

    Using the newest synthetic materials for producing bulletproof vests will help significantly reduce the weight of these armored jackets which are designed for the Russian Armed Forces, according to the Russian newspaper Izvestia.

    The newspaper quoted a Russian Defense Ministry source as saying that research work on the new bulletproof vest comes as part of the development of the Ratnik-3 personal combat uniform kit.

    According to a spokesperson for the Russian Defense Ministry familiar with the situation, the research work, which was officially launched in January 2016, aims to create the third-generation soldier equipment using advanced materials.

    "In particular, a servicemen's uniform will be made of aramid fiber, while bulletproof vests and protective helmets will be produced with the help of armor ceramics which will contain boron carbide," the spokesperson said. The new body armor will be used both for Ratnik-2 and Ratnik-3 infantry combat systems, he said, adding that the use of new materials will allow the producer to slash the weight of the bulletproof vest without sacrificing its durability.

    "With the current bulletproof vest in its complete configuration, including the protection of the groin, forearm and neck, weighing about 15 kilograms, the new body armor's weight will be reduced by 20-30 percent", he said.

    As for boron carbide, an extremely hard boron–carbon ceramic and covalent material used in tank armor, it is already produced by the experimental production enterprises Bifors and NEFS-Soyuz in Russia, according to the spokesperson.

    Earlier, Russian Land Forces commander Col. Gen. Oleg Salyukov said that more than 80,000 Russian servicemen were equipped with Ratnik-2 "soldier of the future" gear in 2015.

    The Ratnik-2 outfit adds significantly to the soldier's combat efficiency and survivability, not least because it's lighter; at 20 kilograms, it weighs just half as much as its predecessor.

    The Ratnik gear comprises more than 40 components, including firearms, body armor, and optical, communication and navigation devices, as well as life support and power supply systems.

    The Ratnik outfit is mainly designed for snipers, riflemen, drivers of armored vehicles and airborne combat vehicle gunners. Russian military engineers are working out unified combat subsystems where a soldier may act as part of a single structure. The Ratnik gear helps a soldier maintain stable radio contact and receive continuously updated reconnaissance data about enemy positions and the overall situation in the combat zone, something that makes him an intellectual fighting machine.
