    The idea was to give a futuristic outlook. Hence no magazine and oversized magwell.

    I think the funniest part is that they used the actual new rifle mag as the shotgun magazine.

    What I love about Ratnik that it gets tweaked countless times as they are now listening to soldiers feedback and comparing to foreign systems.
    Even if not widely deployed as a whole it already has future versions in the pipe. Very glad to see Russian army becoming dynamic when it comes to infantry equipment.

    I also like the fact that it is now considered a system rather than individual pieces that might get upgrades or not depending on how important they might seem.

    By treating them as a system several different items can be integrated together to form multipurpose things.

    An obvious example would be to combine the functions of optical sights for day and night observation and sighting weapons.

    Electronics for communication and navigation are also interesting in that regard too.

    Years ago a map and compass and a radio, as well as binoculars and a rifle scope and night vision goggles would all be carried separately.

    Today a night vision monocular scope could be used as half a NVG and also as a hand held optic and a rifle scope with a ballistic computer and uplink for network communication. Targets could be imaged and data sent to HQ. Glonass data could locate the solider and their targets and an electronic compass and mapping software allow the soldier to navigate using the one optical device
