MOSCOW, November 5. /TASS/. Russian Ground Forces’ military intelligence officers will receive the specialized version of the Ratnik equipment, the Defense Ministry’s press service told journalists on Saturday on the occasion of the Intelligence Officer Day in Russia.
"Active work continues in the Ground Forces to equip intelligence units with the newest technical means of intelligence, special small arms, equipment of the new generation," the press service said. They include Orlan and Eleron drones, radiolocation stations and intelligence systems Fara-VR, Sobolyatnik-O and Strelets, as well as "Ratnik military equipment specially adapted for intelligence units," the defense ministry noted.
The Ratnik is a system of advanced protective and communication equipment, weapons and ammunition. It comprises around 40 protective and life support elements, such as bulletproof helmets and body armor, waterproof overalls and hearing, eye, elbow and knee protections among other things. In addition, the Ratnik includes a self-contained heater, a backpack, an individual water filter, a gas mask and a medical kit. Russian Army Commander-in-Chief Colonel-General Oleg Salyukov said earlier that 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.
