    The era of mismatching Russian camos in each and every pic is well and truly over.

    Well You guys still have special forces. Damn sometimes special operations look like amateur airsoft games, ISAF and RED OPFOR uniforms in one team.

    Largely depends on the units in the special op. Like the FSB/MVD and other internal units working mostly in Dagestan definitely look like amateur airsofters. The ones in military (GRU, SSO, etc.) look much more organized and uniform as seen when military spetsnaz were busy evicting Ukrainian troops from Crimea.

    So looks like this two-sided camo is getting issued along with Ratnik? I thought they forgot about it and went with VKPO. Or maybe it's the old photos that surfaced just now.

    Imo, Ratnik, and in particular the numbers they are planning to procure, is one of the most impressive things regarding Russian military developments. Does that mean that average, active service Russian ground troops are going to look more tacticool than their "NATO" (whatever that means, Romania or the US?) counterparts? That will be HUGE. Like 70k by the end of the year, 50k+ every year after that, so -> around 350 000 Ratnik sets by the end of 2020?

    Depends on if they upgrade it and how much the upgrade will cost and if they will contue Ratnik 1 introduction as well. Ratnik 2 is already being developed and the 50,000+ that is supposed to get it this year are testing it more or less en mass. If it turns out very effecrive then they can produce more hopefully reducing costs.

    Chances are, it will be front line troops system and a spetsnaz system (modified of course) than a every soldier kind of system. But maybe it can become an every soldier thing. But may not entirely be needed as such.

    I'm impressed that we're seeing the 6B43/45 body armor being issued in decent numbers to troops. For too long, inadequate and uncomfortable body armor has been the norm. The 6B43/45 is a huge improvement over the 6B23 and its predecessors. It's without a doubt one of the best pieces of body armor in the world today.

    6B43 and 6B47 are for everyone, they are being delivered without Ratniks as well. It becomes too hard to explain what is Ratnik and what isn't.

    And it's unified. There will be no differences between Ratniks for VDV and Marines.

    As for how tacticool it will look, it depends on the soldier and what he will decide to wear.

    That picture with the girl in the pink sweater/hoodie: One of the soldiers has a NPZ PSU-1/4. Nice.

    I don't think that is necessarily Ratnik. Ratnik program includes the headgear equipment and communication gear. That is simply kevlar vest and helmet.

    So the US media has had hype about the TALOS uniforms. Now the only other nation with the need to develop something like it is the Russians. But I don't see anything like it the biggest thing I can see that TALOS has over anything else if it is developed is the exoskeleton again I have not found anything exoskeleton like being developed. So is there anything like it? Or is there something better than powered exoskeletons.

    The Russians already demonstrated quite a few exoskeleton systems, however there's a problem. The concept of exoskeleton systems are bulky, cumbersome, and restrict mobility for just a modest increase in carrying weight for soldiers. As of now exoskeleton systems are not feasible, at least as of now, maybe in ten years, but not now.

    What is wrong with that?  Schwab seems to create quality sights.

    At that, it is simply just stock photo from the mod.

    PN23 (PN22W/K) is already in service since basically 2011. At least two pieces have been seen in Ukropistan. From Northern Wind guys. So It's a bit curious, since they have brand new variable zoom night optics (by Schwabe) but maybe you're right and its just for illustration purposes.

    BTW PN23 is a very effective sight for the money.
