    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

    Russia’s ‘soldier of the future’ combat gear excels foreign rivals by armor protection

    Russia will continue improving the "soldier of the future", defense minister says

    MOSCOW, June 2. /TASS/. Russia’s Ratnik "soldier of future" combat gear excels foreign rivals by armor protection and surpasses domestic variants by all parameters by two or three times, Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said on Friday.

    "Let me note that the combat gear excels existing domestic variants by two or three times by its characteristics. Moreover, it is no inferior to foreign rivals and excels them by a number of positions, in the first place, by armor protection," the defense minister said.

    In line with the Russian president’s instruction, about 50,000 second-generation Ratnik outfits have been supplied annually to troops since 2014, Shoigu noted.

    "As a result, the provision of alert units and formations with modern combat gear makes up 42% on average," the defense minister said.

    Russia will continue improving the "soldier of the future" combat gear.

    The Ratnik is a system of advanced protective and communication equipment, weapons and ammunition. It comprises around 40 protective and life support elements and allows a soldier to get continuously updated information about situation in the combat area. In addition, the Ratnik includes a self-contained heater, a backpack, an individual water filter, a gas mask and a medical kit.

    An advanced Ratnik-3 combat gear with an integral exoskeleton and a helmet visor-mounted target designation system is currently being developed for Russia’s Armed Forces.

    The new Ratnik gear is looking more and more like Robocop..

    new Gear .. they adding new stuff. with every new version.
    Check the shoes.. now are fully exo.

    This does not look like any ratnik gear released earlier by Russia.

    Interesting, but that's not a prototype, that's a mock-up.
