MOSCOW, August 20. /TASS/. Russia’s state-run hi-tech corporation Rostec will demonstrate stealth camouflaging for troops and military hardware at the Army-2018 international military and technical forum outside Moscow, Rostec CEO Sergei Chemezov told TASS on Monday.
The camouflage developed on order from Russia’s Defense Ministry changes its pattern and color depending on the environment and will be used as coating for military hardware and the soldiers’ outfits.
"At the Army-2018 forum, Rostec will demonstrate a prototype of the electrically-controllable material that can change its color depending on the surface that needs to be camouflaged and on the environment. The coating can reflect color changes and imitate complex graphical depictions, up to the leaves wavering in the wind," Chemezov said.
The coating’s operation principle will be demonstrated on Rostec’s display stand, using as an example the helmet of the soldier’s advanced combat outfit, he said.
"But the possibilities of using the coating are much wider. In the future, it may be applied to whatever it is: clothes, arms, combat hardware," Chemezov said.
