Description: The Russian Army's Ratnik, formerly Strelets, is a platform concept to enhance the infantryman combat skills using state-of-the-art technologies such as advanced sensors and lightweight armor. The system was first tested in 2008 in the Strelets configuration. The new Ratnik set started testing in the fall of 2013 and is expected to complete by October 2014. Ratnik comprises about 50 components, including firearms, body armor and optical, communication and navigation devices, as well as life support and power supply systems. The equipment can be used by regular infantry, paratroopers, rocket launcher operators, machine gunners, drivers and scouts. The Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) expects to procure up to 50,000 sets per year starting in 2015.
