Rostec has announced that its unit the Central Research Institute of Precision Machine-Building (TsNIITochMash) has delivered nearly 300,000 combat outfits to the Russian troops over eight years.

The combat equipment, called Ratnik, is designed to adapt to the physical characteristics of the serviceman and to the requirements of combat missions.

The company designed multiple variants of the gear, which includes basic configuration, a commander’s version, as well as kits for snipers, machine gunners and combat vehicle crews.

Overall, the Ratnik system is designed with more than 60 protective and life support elements, as well as communications equipment, weapons and ammunition to increase situational awareness.

It also features a self-contained heater, a backpack, an individual water filter, a gas mask and a medical kit.

TsNIITochMash began the annual serial deliveries of the gear in 2015, after the completion of the full range of military tests.

The unit has completed the production and delivery of combat kits for this year ahead of schedule.

According to a Tass report, an advanced Ratnik-3 combat gear is currently under development for the armed forces. The gear will include an exoskeleton and a helmet visor-mounted target designation system.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Russia plans to conduct 4,800 military drills next year.

The training activities will focus on improving multi-service force interoperability and firepower capabilities.

Russia is also conducting trials of a new family of artillery and mortar armament, a programme expected to complete next year.
