Artillerymen will test an industrial exoskeleton for carrying and loading shells

The Russian Ministry of Defense may soon be armed with exoskeletons, which will reduce the burden on military personnel of engineering or other "non-combat" units working with heavy loads. Maxim Skokov, CEO of the Russian company Ekzo Solutions, spoke about the start of testing exoskeletons for carrying and loading artillery shells.


According to a representative of the developer company, they were approached by representatives of one of the special structures that will conduct an experiment on the use of exoskeletons in loading and unloading artillery shells. Tests will be carried out during November-December of this year at one of the military training grounds.

Interest (of the Russian military in exoskeletons) is manifested, we were approached by representatives not even of the Ministry of Defense, but of other special structures. (...) Artillerymen are interested in exoskeletons to facilitate the loading of shells. In November-December, we will conduct an experiment at one of the landfills, during which a potential customer will test the effectiveness of our equipment in practice for solving these problems

- said Skokov RIA News

As specified in Ekzo Solutions, the Ministry of Defense is currently studying the issue of using exoskeletons in the Russian army, but is not conducting any tests. At the same time, "passive" exoskeletons that do not use any batteries could greatly facilitate the work of "non-combat" units, for example, when repairing equipment, or building defensive structures.

Ekzo Solutions manufactures industrial exoskeletons designed to relieve the main load during various work. By the way, back in 2019, the US Army began testing civilian models of exoskeletons for the processes of unloading and loading various military cargo.

    It is the very thing to carry loads. South Koreans seem to be actively using it at shipyards.

    for all the horrors of the war, it is worth recognizing that it has always been a motivator for the processes of renewal and modernization in the army. It is not in vain that the Americans fight in every decade, keeping their strategic minds and their military-industrial complex in good shape. And from war to war, we manage to lose everything - from military leadership skills to understanding the needs of the army in accordance with the relevant realities.

    Dig-bomb! .. All over the world, this is not even a topic for discussion - exoskeletons are used to the fullest, which makes life incredibly easier for soldiers. Active ones are used, with servo drives, with a bunch of all sorts of useful gadgets. And the topic of passive exoskeletons in many armies has, as they say, been eaten up and given away. Again, we are in the role of catching up ... When will the senile people, as always preparing for the last war, be driven out of the Moscow Region and the General Staff ???

      It seems to me that the "Prigozhin" company made an order for exoskeletons ... and "musicians" will test it ... this is a personal opinion! yes and the fact that the Ministry of Defense is not ... not necessary, it has long been clear to everyone! hi

      Aha, the Americans also showed a robo-mullet that carries ammunition for the fighters, but the voice acting was peppy music, because this mule buzzes so that you can’t hear the tank behind it

      I have not heard that even the US Armed Forces actively used exoskeletons in combat. Especially with active elements, since, again, I have not heard about solving problems with a sufficiently capacious, but at the same time compact power source. Can you provide some coverage from the most advanced army in the world?

        I’ll definitely provide it, and not even from the most advanced, as soon as the site starts accepting pictures from me - they don’t load, apparently the limit has been exhausted.

      I read the headline, I thought, now the "Geocinths" will shoot in bursts, but no. sad
      Although, the main thing here is to start, and then "Demand creates supply", I hope it works! smile

    The decision has been on the surface for a long time, it itself asks for troops. You drag charges for guns for a couple of hours and a man is a corpse, but you have to drag it for 24 hours

    Passive exoskeletons were tested by our army 2-3 years ago in Syria. Looks like there's a new supplier.

    again the famous “will be”, “we will do”, “we will direct” sad
    The exoskeleton is a good thing, but very cumbersome, for example - putting on and taking off is probably not a quick thing, but in the conditions of a modern war, where after 2-3 shots the artillery crew needs to urgently change position ... you need an additional car to transport a fighter in such a suit

    Imagine the cost of one set, you involuntarily wonder if it would not be better to throw in armor, sights, thermal imagers, quadrocopters, etc. for this money.
    Another thing is that all this is a question for the day after tomorrow.
