Engineering troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation awaiting the first deliveries of exoskeletons

The deputy chief of the Russian engineer troops, Colonel Ruslan Alakhverdiyev, reports that next year Russian sappers will receive exoskeletons. The supply of engineering troops with exoskeletons will allow to solve the difficult task of reducing the burden on the fighter when carrying massive loads, including anti-mine equipment.

According to Colonel Alahverdiyev, the exoskeleton will allow the soldier to carry around kg of cargo around 50 without applying extra efforts.

Engineering troops of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation awaiting the first deliveries of exoskeletons

From the statement of the deputy chief of engineering troops:
Minerals and attack aircraft are very heavily equipped and carry a large amount of ammunition. To perform combat missions, they need special equipment.

This equipment is the exoskeleton. At the moment, the equipment of the new generation passes the final tests. After testing, exoskeletons will begin to flow into the assault and looting units.

The device, of course, does not relieve the entire load on the serviceman, but allows it to be distributed so that significantly less power and energy is spent on carrying the load, as is usually the case. Army exoskeletons (depending on the purpose) can be equipped with protective equipment.

    ... last time, the GDP examined such specimens at the exhibition ... a campaign was just around the corner when such exoskeletons would become almost an everyday occurrence in the Russian Armed Forces ...

      So just around the corner. I think so the first will be ours in Syria. If this still allows you to take home protection, then it will be very good.

          I doubt it very much, after all mountains, when approaching them, become more and more .

    Engineers in anticipation of exoskeletons, tankers in anticipation of armatures, pilots in anticipation of the su-57, infantry waiting for the Kurgan army some sort of.

      We are all waiting for the production of a significant amount of S-500 on the database ...

      In general, amateurs to draw historical analogies can safely begin to recall the year 1941 of the history of the USSR, when too many things were either on the way or at various stages of testing and putting into production.

        That is, those already delivered to the S-400 database seem like a trifle to you; without Armata and Kurganets, the Russian army is just a target and it's time to give up ... You know, people like you will always be more comfortable at the beginning of the forty-first ... Well, there are people who have the slightest the wound on the body of Russia will turn into an ulcer and get incredible pleasure ... I like how our people nicknamed such individuals - liberals who know Russian well - that will appreciate the accuracy of the wording.

    The author of the material is not entirely accurate in terminology and physics.
    Less effort and energy cannot be spent not transferring the same load plus the exic itself, given that the ex is passive.
    There is a simple redistribution of the load with the transfer of a significant part of it to the most powerful and hardy muscles of the body - femoris, gluteus and others like them.
    Those. when using a normally working passive exoskeleton, a little more energy is spent, but a fighter can really carry a significant load to a greater distance and somewhat faster.

    I’m writing this not to be smart about it, but for the sake of trying to reach a greater number of people with an understanding of what and how it works when using an exi.

      considering that ex is passive

      but what can you say about the active "ex"?

        Active obviously will not be in the near future, energy consumption and speed will not allow normal use for now

      Not certainly in that way. You confuse useful and general work. The useful work is really a little more, due to the fact that the exoskeleton itself also has to be transferred. But the overall work is less. The muscles of a person do significant work, even if he just stands, not doing useful work. Blood is pumped, calories are spent, all this goes into heat, which also needs to be removed. When moving under heavy load, a person has a large loss of energy in the ligaments, which become very hot during operation. In fact, the exoskeleton reduces precisely these losses, performing the function of an ordinary garden car, but you can also walk up the steps.

      This is noticeable even with modern backpacks. When I walked with a kolobok 30 years ago, the load went on the shoulders, which worked on their own, and also rested on the back and spine, which also worked, plus legs. Machine tools carry a significant part of the load on the back, energy loss to support the shoulder girdle is significantly reduced. A modern backpack transfers almost all the weight to the hips, further reducing the empty back work. The exoskeleton goes even further, transferring the weight of the load below the knees, further reducing energy loss in these joints. In general, the fewer the ligaments and joints involved in the transfer of cargo, the more we save energy and sweat less, because less heat needs to be diverted into which all this internal work turns.

    Immediately I recall the saying that the promised three years are waiting. wink
    And so, if it is true (as they wrote in the yellow press) that the Americans tested such things in combat conditions (Iraq or Afghanistan), then it turns out that this artifact is hampering movement, since it was decided to use it for miners for now.

      The bulldozer is also not very maneuverable, but it’s used to clear the rubble, streets and ensure progress ....

        Yes, let them be used. Bulldozers could not replace tanks, armored personnel carriers or infantry fighting vehicles on the battlefield. The requirements for the mobility of a fighter during clearance and movement under enemy fire are different. Therefore, sappers may have exoskeletons next year, and they will probably go to the assault units for another 5 years.

    They simply lived, worked, served in the USSR. And someone was developing new types of weapons, and even after adopting them, not everyone knew about their existence.
    Now you are informed of the state of affairs, and you prefer to nag and itch. Is this how you help the process, or is it just that kind of character?
