    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...

    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.

    Russia Begins Ratnik-2 Future Soldier Gear Development

    Russia's Prospective Research Foundation began research and brainstorming on a new future soldier gear system to succeed the new Ratnik system.


    Russia has begun developing the Ratnik-2 "future soldier" gear with a brainstorm to put together existing ideas, the head of the Russian government's Prospective Research Foundation, Russia's version of DARPA, Andrei Grigoryev told RIA Novosti.

    According to Grigoryev, the development of the Ratnik-2 will be finished between 2025 and 2030. The first four years will be the Foundation's project, followed by research and engineering, and lastly mass production. Grigoryev also said that the military android presented in January will be ready by the end of the year.

    "We launched a project with TsNIITochMash aimed at creating our common vision of what the gear of the 'soldier of the future' should look like in 15-20 years. It's a very interesting project, we invited anyone who wishes to fantasize. We will soon conduct a seminar on this issue at the foundation," Grigoryev said.

    Grigoryev added that the foundation has a "heap of proposals" regarding what the equipment should look like, although they need to be analyzed.

    The first Ratnik combat gear project was completed in 2015 and the Russian Ministry of Defense ordered 50,000 kits each for 2015 and 2016.

    Grigoryev added that the military android presented to the Russian government in January will be capable of running and crossing obstacles by the end of the year.

    The android's actual purpose is mine clearance and other tasks which are dangerous but do not demand precise operation, according to Grigoryev, although he did not specify any details.

    "Its mission is to work in very dangerous condition where a human presence is needed, with the possibility of remote control. The goal is for the person to be in a normal environment while the robot works in the danger zone," Grigoryev said.

    The robot is "not designed to run around with an assault rifle," Grigoryev added, saying that other treaded and wheeled vehicles exist for the task.

    At a field exercise in May, Russian Ural-family military robots proved capable of destroying enemy humans and machines while working as a group.

    The Prospective Research Foundation, a government-funded defense research body similar to the United States' DARPA, was created in 2012. The foundation's projects include small arms, information technology, bionics and large weapons systems.
