Russia is in talks with France to buy Felin advanced future soldier equipment, according to First Deputy Defence Minister Vladimir Popovkin.

“We will take several Felin sets,” he said. “We need something no less capable than the equipment that is now being studied by the US, Germany and other states.”

The Felin system includes new combat clothing with body armour containing an integrated radio and GPS system, a new ballistic helmet, weapons, a portable computer and advanced optronics.

The system is produced by France’s Sagem and will soon enter service with the French Army.

The creation of a Russian analogue of the system is also being considered under the new Russian state arms procurement plan, according to RIA Novosti.
