Outfit of a Russian soldier: From "Warrior" to "Sotnik"

47

The Russian equipment being created by the Rostec state corporation will be lightweight, allowing a serviceman to take additional weapons and equipment with him. This is achieved through the use of special innovative materials for its production. The basis for the equipment will be a supermolecular polyethylene fiber.


This was told to the agency RIA News in the state corporation "Rostec".

They noted that the Russian defense industry in a short time has gone from "Warrior", which entered the troops relatively recently, to "Sotnik", which is still under development.

The new third generation equipment can be tailored to the soldier's figure and will not hinder his movements. Moreover, in terms of the level of protection, it surpasses not only its predecessor, but also all existing body armor.

The cushioning ability of the material is capable of stopping fragments flying at a speed of 670 m / s and dampening a shock impulse that could damage internal organs, even if the protection was not pierced.

According to the agency TASS, the development and testing of equipment should be completed by 2023. And the full equipping of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with it is scheduled for 2030.

Earlier it was reported about the development in our country of a special ultramolecular polyethylene of special strength, which can be used to create a new generation of protective equipment.

      The exo in this case is most likely without energy, that is, his task is to effectively redistribute the weight carried by the fighter, which, in general, is also useful

    The exoskeleton is not like a mech manipulator.
    It does not have to have any drives that must be powered.
    However, here it is necessary to read the opinion of a specialist.

      You are absolutely right. The exoskeleton shown in the photo for the article is passive, i.e. not having drives for movement. Its task is to remove the load created by portable weapons, body armor and other items of equipment from the shoulders, from the belt and, accordingly, from the legs of a soldier and transfer it to the supporting surfaces. On, so to speak, soles. At the same time, the possibilities of movement for a soldier imprisoned in the ES are rather limited and peculiar. You can move in such an ES only on not very rugged terrain, waddling from foot to foot. Raiding the mountains, jumping up the stairs of city buildings or waging a maneuverable battle in such an ES will not work. Is that only to go to the embrasures, packed in super-heavy armor.

    Let's face it - not really ...

    The main properties of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene include:
    .
    7. low melting point (about 150 ° C), which does not allow the operation of products made of high-modulus polyethylene at temperatures above 80-100 ° C.

      Below answered this question. The addition of triphenyl phosphate solves the problem. UHMWPE has a great advantage in terms of loss of strength in water, which is sharply reduced in aramid yarns.

    The developments in anti-fragmentation light armor are pleasing, perhaps this is the most valuable thing that will be in Sotnik. An exoskeleton in a passive performance will not be unambiguously useful, the option with a closed helmet will definitely be unsuitable in a number of climatic zones and combat conditions.

        No, it's not about strength. The point is an elementary problem when wearing helmets of this type in conditions of even slight smoke, high humidity, freezing temperatures, etc. I think it will be a very conditional piece of equipment, most likely in reality there will be a helmet + glasses.

          Where exactly do you see the problem? It will not be a conventional element; composite armor plates for the chest, armored helmets and other elements made of this material are already ready.
          Armok has been playing with UHMWPE for a long time, not to mention other countries. It is no secret that we import industrial production of many elements for body armor due to insufficient production in the Russian Federation.

    UHMWPE itself has an oxygen index lower than aramid threads (for Rusar-O thread it is equal to 46%, for UHMWPE - less than 20%). In Novosibirsk, work was carried out to increase the fire resistance of UHMWPE by adding triphenyl phosphate, the peak temperature reached 350-400 degrees. This is lower than the peak load of the Rusar-O aramid yarn, but comparable to Rusar-S yarns (the third generation of domestic aramid yarns).

      If the exoskeleton is passive, then yes, you can't jump on the spot, but if the passive skeleton is supplemented with rubber shock absorbers, or pneumatic springs, which will accumulate and release deformation energy, then it will be possible to jump through the valley, but not uphill.

    ultramolecular polyethylene
    more than fifty years already known: Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene - ethylene polymers with a molecular weight of more than 1 million carbon units ... (UHMWPE, "Ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene" - UHMW PE), a construction material suitable for work in extreme operating conditions. UHMWPE was first used in the industry in the 1950s by Ruhrchemie AG [de], and in the 1960s, A. J. Pennings, in collaboration with DSM (Netherlands), synthesized fiber structures from UHMWPE with a very high durability. In the 1970s, DSM specialists managed to create fibers based on Pennigs' discoveries. In the world of UHMWPE, the following companies are synthesized: Ticona, Braskem, DSM, Teijin (Endumax), Celanese and Mitsui. In the Soviets, that still the Union, they also used various armored structures as a material, even in the MBT towers!

          Any passive exoskeleton has levers connected by hinges, if you add springs to the hinges, then it will be possible to accumulate energy in them. deformity, such as bending the legs, and returning it when extending
