“The contract has been concluded. Next month we are finishing work under a contract for supplying first generation gear. The work on a new one is about to be started. The first sets will be delivered this year, and the bulk of the supplies, starting from 2015. The contract is extended for three years,” Semizorov said.

The new gear is expected to provide comprehensive protection for the officers and men and enhance their combat capability. The Ratnik set consists of about 50 components. Alongside new weapons the troops will be equipped with new aiming and protection means, electronic means of communication, navigation and target-finding. The previous generation gear - Ratnik-1 - is already being supplied to army units. It is operational within a range of air temperatures from minus 50 degrees to plus 50 degrees Celsius.
Semizorov said the export configuration of the combat gear is ready for display. It will be demonstrated at the Abu Dhabi arms exhibition in 2015.
