Ukrainian soldier of the future wears a comfortable suit, helmet and super glasses

New armor for the future Ukrainian soldier began to be forged in the Armed Forces, attracting domestic and foreign defense enterprises for this. The first samples of experimental combat equipment were demonstrated at the recent military exercises "Perspective-2012".

“Although in many armies, research and practical work on shaping the image of a“ soldier of the future ”has been going on for more than a year, earlier in Ukraine they avoided this urgent task. Only the current leadership of the Ministry of Defense has taken this area under personal control, say representatives of the national defense industry. - And the first results are already there.


Paradoxically - but a fact: at all times the set of weapons and equipment carried by infantry and equipment was almost always at the limit of human capabilities.

Today, at least four dozen countries are implementing national programs to create their own "soldier of the future." Thus, individual combat kits systems are developed in the USA (Land Warrior and Mounted Warrior), in Germany (IdZ), Great Britain (FIST), Spain (COMFUT), Sweden (IMESS), France (FELIN) Russia (Warrior), China, India , South Korea, Japan, Norway, Romania, Poland, the Czech Republic and other countries. Almost everywhere, soldier equipment is a complete solution from 5-10 subsystems, including means of protection, destruction, communications, control, as well as life and power supply, and others. A fighter dressed in combat gear becomes a unit of a single command and control network capable of conducting two-way data exchange with the command.

Ukraine is no longer aloof from world military trends. At the beginning of 2012, Andrei Artyushenko, Director of the Development and Procurement Department of Defense Weapons and Military Equipment, carefully lifted the curtain over our “soldier of the future”:

- The Ministry of Defense together with special exporters pay great attention to this area. Minister Dmitry Salamatin personally supervises this issue. In the Weapons Development Program for the period 2012 - 2017. This section is provided, it is divided into several stages. The project involves an integrated approach with the development of small-scale weapons, night vision devices, communications equipment, body armor, controls, etc.


Already in September, 2012 showed an experimental batch of new uniforms on Perspective. This revolutionary "Gorka" suit MK-2 gained popularity among employees of various special forces. Now it is tested and our military.

Comfortable fit and materials used in the composition, make it ideal for field conditions. High wear resistance of the suit has been achieved thanks to the newest profit-on material (composition: 65% cotton, 35% polyester), which has successfully passed laboratory and field tests, in the production of which an innovative approach to the structure of knitting fibers and fabric reinforcement is used.

The head of the military during the exercise "Perspective-2012" commented on the novelty:

- This clothing is qualitatively different from previous samples. It is very convenient, does not interfere with the movement, the soldiers really like it.

During the exercise, the military were equipped with body armor and helmets of Ukrainian origin, and protective plates were used to protect the knee joints of the legs.

- Equipment - a prototype of weapons, protection and ammunition of a soldier of the future. Over time, the kit will be supplemented with a combat helmet with built-in night vision device, micro-video camera, as well as reliable personal protective equipment - light anti-splinter vest. An ordinary soldier will have a GPS receiver so that the commander can see and orient where the soldier is located, ”added Anatoly Gurnovich, head of the development of weapons and military equipment of the Ground Forces. - There is also a microcomputer with a display, which will receive information from the commander, a portable radio station for targeting, sensors that measure the body temperature of the soldier, pressure, pulse and allow him to monitor his condition.

Sniper pragmatism

New models of small arms were also shown on large-scale exercises of the Armed Forces of Ukraine "Perspective-2012". It is still unclear what a nominal small family will be able to replace the Kalashnikov assault rifle. But the Ministry of Defense has already decided to combine work on the creation of individual equipment with a new sniper complex caliber 12,7 mm. Snipers with such weapons will also be equipped with optical-electronic surveillance tools - small reconnaissance devices, means of determining the source data for firing, and other necessary equipment. Sniper groups capable of hitting targets, including lightly armored ones, at a distance of up to 2 km will significantly increase the combat potential of the Ukrainian special operations forces.


The Ministry of Defense has begun the purchase of satellite navigation systems receivers, which are developed and manufactured by one of the domestic state-owned enterprises. For individual use by the fighter, a wearable navigation kit has been created that solves both navigation tasks and performs calculations for firing. The location is determined both by signals from the American GPS satellite system, the Russian GLONASS, and by autonomous navigation tools (magnetic compass and micromechanical sensors). It can show the scheme of the battle, determine and transmit the coordinates of the target, receive and display commands. It weighs such a smart pencil case 600 grams.

Also created a simple, reliable and effective means personal infantry tactical intelligence. The transmitting device is a simple digital video camera that, if necessary, is fired by a soldier over the battlefield from a device that looks like a flare gun. The signal from the video camera in encoded mode is fed to the fighter’s hand-held receiver (any communicator from leading manufacturers of mobile equipment can be used). A video camera is operating under a descending parachute for about one minute.


Modern equipment for the soldier, equipped and prepared for participation in the "high-tech" war-to the highest standard, is not cheap.

“But no one is going to equip our soldiers, from helmets to socks, to everything in the corps.” Something will be bought, something will be created in our enterprises, - they say in the Ministry of Defense. - At the forefront of the approach is "efficiency - cost." The integral result is important for us, which at the first stage will satisfy the requirements of the most combat-ready units and units, and then at the already established base will increase the capabilities of this combat equipment - taking into account new technical solutions and finances. This is the concept of the so-called "open architecture". We can analyze the foreign experience of creating a "soldier of the future" and avoid the mistakes that others have made.

The military department recognizes that only the first steps have been taken to solve the ambitious task of creating a national "soldier of the future". But this is the beginning of the road to a new look of the new army - effective, modern and competitive. Ukraine simply does not need another army.

- We have the technology. It is necessary to use all these developments - navigation tools, digital communication. As soon as we do this, we will qualitatively change the face of our Armed Forces, - Dmitry Salamatin is convinced.

        It will be harder to arrange the allocated funds because there are fewer of them, yes. But in general, I like your idea, only if you combine efforts, then not in such trifles, but, say, in the field of construction of ships for the Navy, etc.

        Well, yes - of course, I lived in Ukraine not long ago, there are many acquaintances in the army, oh, sorry, that it was more profitable for "the bloody forces", who went through the term, who was a personnel officer, the uniform was already introduced when they went to Iraq, the quality - it was just super wassat , it’s true then the situation was better in the country, and there was more money .... here - again dust in the eyes ... I understand that it causes blind delight, but I’m not 17 years old, and they’re unlikely to find money for anything worthy - they just held the elections - it’s necessary to repay debts, accumulate pockets ... of course - it’s time to change the outdated Bhutan long ago (if it is not clear to anyone - Dubok), because it was invented in 84 more - almost 30 years already .... you can on a foreign machine gun (excuse me - an assault rifle) to give out as in the 2nd photo ... only the top military-political leadership has neither money nor desire — except that they will equip a couple of ostentatious units ... it's like with tanks and other weapons - really all the weapons are outdated - there’s no one to fight, because the exercises are for showing off in Ukraine - and not for practicing skills, and they hang noodles about uniforms, and outfitting - laughter.
        In the first photo - that there was not enough money for the hat and boots of the Moscow Region !? and in the second photo - what kind of weapon in the Ukrainian army !? why the crest of a different color !? unload why black !? - Well, tactical groups in an urban environment are understandable, but showing a new form is somehow awkward in your head ... can it be airsoft players! ??????? laughing and in general they should be in the best traditions - if in Russia - from Yudashkin’s form, then in Ukraine Andre Tan can get involved! ???????))))))

    Dear, what do you have against boots? Boots are a very good and comfortable thing, especially with footcloths and for long transitions.
    In addition, in some branches of the armed forces - for example, at the border guards - they are simply irreplaceable - how long do you put on a boot with berets ?????

    You can also more in detail about the Gorki-MK2 ??? What kind of beast? or is it just plagiarism?

    PS - in the photograph fighters in all gloves - somewhere I saw similar ones ???????? It seems that they sell in any store in Russia - are they called gymnastics? If water gets in, just like leathers there, the hands very quickly become blue-black - the paint there is like that. As far as I remember there are special gloves - with pads - the color of camouflage.

        From my many years of experience in military service, I can say that boots are more practical and versatile.
        And further. When detonated on a mine like "Petal" in such beautiful boots, the leg rips off somewhere just at the level of the tight lacing. In boots it is still possible to "get off" with half a foot, but in these "wheels" it will not work. This is from practical observation, not from the Internet.
        Everything has its pros and cons, the scope should be divided.

          half of the foot just tears off in light shoes, that's why partly they wore krasovki, and it’s easier to move in berets along the relief terrain, there are 40 grams of explosives in total .... of course - you can tie a steel plate to your legs - then you need sappers will fall away ... you see the incredible humanist)))) - get off in boots - wow, tear off your foot - get off ... incapacitated and that's it ...

      about the boots - let's all the same be more precise - I didn’t talk about the border guards, but if I also talked about them, I can give them a three-line - she has a better length and a hefty bayonet, but seriously - not at that time - there is a quick lacing , and other innovations, and even without that - for boots - for lunch 300 years) and legs are cramped (only without snots about footcloths are poorly wound, in warm climates, or rather in moderate ones, legs do not breathe - nails deteriorate - my not mine), and as far as I know - on alarm everyone should be quickly equipped, not border guards apart, so good boots - they are good boots in Africa too .. well, for aesthetes - even though they can make new boots with modern materials ..... come in handy.

You go across Ukraine and think as if the war has passed, hundreds of abandoned military townships, mothballed and plundered factories for a long time. The technique is in a frightening state, the fleet is the same. I'm ashamed to talk about the aircraft fleet. Of course, I want to believe in what the next "Bravy" Minister of Defense promises.

              So, the ZSU reform 2011-2015 involves a staff reduction of up to 160000 (this is not the first time, I wonder if they have enough money to pay reduced benefits !?), let the proportion of fighters (for example) who need their duty (infantry, infantry, Airborne Forces, Marines) equipment of a 21st century fighter
              a third of the number (roughly considered) - 40000 people, the price of the FELIN kit is about 45000 cu = 1800000000 killed raccoons .... we multiply by 8 = 14400000000 UAH ... - many zeros! ??? State budget expenditures are set at 358 billion 050 million 376,4 thousand UAH The volume of public debt as of December 31, 2012 is set at 415 billion 565 million 120,9 thousand UAH
              (even if it’s not FELIN, even cheaper, but do not forget that the tanks and planes with helicopters are out of date, if tanks can be riveted in Kharkov, then making a Fighter or attack aircraft is a problem ... and so on - in the end, it’s necessary to stretch even more if it’s for 20 years, then NATO will go on this equipment until the 20th year, and Ukraine, as in Zimbabwe, is sorry only in 2030-40! ?????)

                Let's start with the fact that I was indignant at the Centaurus commentary. so that money is not for the army, but for feeding.
                As for the army itself, there are positive changes. Maybe they are not so visible and not so operational, but eo is still a push from the bottom. Even it seems to me that I raised my pension 2,5 times (I need to see for my own interest).

                And about the super-system of the future. Where are these prices taken? We are not hvrentia somehow.
                All the soldier’s outfit costs a piece of bucks (winter summer uniform, boots and tactical equipment). You immediately set the TTX parameter as in the Terminator.
                As they said in "Wedding in Malinovka! Do not rush!"
                No one will do this right away. Yes and whether it is necessary.
                To have something like the French system, you must at least have an extensive network of satellites. In Ukraine there are only TWO!

      Better, worse, you need a balance. All the while kicking that military people are eating away ... those pennies that are needed for this decision will not help the whole population to heal richly.

    In Ukraine, now all the money is poured into the internal troops

    Well, that’s right! Those in power are primarily interested in ensuring internal security, since phantom external aggression is just fairy tales for fools and a way to cut the budget.
    Like it or not, but the main threat to the elite is the people of Ukraine - therefore, their accounts abroad, and their children there, and their real estate there, etc.
    There is no hope for the army - it will not go against the people, and history has confirmed this, but the Internal Troops, the Ministry of Internal Affairs can always, at the right time, "sweeten" it with increases in salaries, pensions, etc. - the main thing is that they are sufficiently equipped to fulfill the task set by the elite, even against the rebellious military units.

      History says otherwise. With serious internal stirrings, first of all, ripping off uniform trousers and trinkets, the police, gendarmes, policemen and policemen scatter, realizing that the people will not show humanity towards them, but will experience an outrage for "faithful service" to the authorities against the people. And families must be protected from the wrath of the people. So which side will BB be on is a big question. There will be individuals_ scumbags, without clan and tribe, but only a few. But God forbid this should not be allowed. In addition, the authority of the bandyukovichs in power is slowly but surely creeping downward.

    Ukrainian soldier of the future wears a comfortable suit, helmet and super glasses

    It looks somehow ridiculous in the sphere of the complete collapse of Ukrainian industry.

    There is a shift and this cannot but rejoice, I would like to see the final stage of the reform of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. And about the form, I prefer the GPS-shnaya form.

    PS: I think that any reform should begin with an increase in the monetary security of the soldiers. which also began in the APU. (pah-pah-pah so as not to jinx it)
