The Bundeswehr received the first sets of individual equipment soldier "Gladius"

70



The Rheinmetall company announced the ceremony at Ruhpolding to hand over to the German Armed Forces the first sets of individual equipment for the Gladius soldier, also bearing the Infanterist der Zukunft - Erweitertes System (IdZ-ES or IdZ-2) designation. The first kits were adopted by the 10th tank Bundeswehr divisions.

Rheinmetall developed the Gladius kit using the experience of creating the IdZ (Infanterist der Zukunft) outfit. The first of them were adopted by the Air Force, Ground Forces and the German Navy in 2004 year. In total, more than 3 thousand sets of this version were used for the Armed Forces of Germany, which were used mainly in foreign operations.

The contract for the development of an improved version of IdZ-ES was signed with Rheinmetall in September 2006. The agreement for the supply of the pre-production version of the kit was signed with the company in 2009. The Gladius apparel purchase program began in 2012. 14 June 2012 The German Federal Office for Defense Technology and Procurement (BWB) has contracted with Rheinmetall to supply the first 30 Gladius kits for 300 troops. The cost of this agreement was about 50 million euros.

The contract included an option for the supply of the German Gadius 60 additional sets, which was implemented in January 2013. The cost of this contract is estimated at 84 million euros (112 million dollars). The implementation of the agreement will allow 60 infantry units to be equipped with a total of 600 troops.

Currently, the Bundeswehr, in accordance with the schedule, accepts 30 Gladius kits ordered in 2012. By June 2013, military personnel equipped with them will be trained in the use of new equipment before being sent to Afghanistan.

Delivery of kits under the option will be made in two batches of 30 kits each. The first tranche will be transferred to the customer in the middle of 2013, the second - by the end of the current year. This will allow the following two contingents of the German Armed Forces to be sent to Afghanistan in advance.

According to the manufacturer, the Gladius outfit surpasses its existing counterparts, including the basic version of the outfit. The use of "Gladius" will increase the effectiveness of the combat use of infantry units, as well as increase the survival rate of servicemen.

Gladius is designed to integrate infantry units numbering up to 10 people and armored vehicles used by the unit (Puma, Wiesel) into a networked command and control system that provides intelligence, data exchange, transfer of control commands and allows for more efficient planning and conduct of combat operations.

    The infantryman is a terminator! Something like that, for the work of our special forces.
    It is interesting to compare the appearance of the final version of the "Warrior" and this miracle of technology.

      Sagittarius2 used in his unit a good thing, special thanks to the Petrograd for a tablet with GPS and range finder, but for some reason they don’t buy a complete set of MOs now, they take only a minimum, and the communication system is slowly being brought up by a very stable communication system but the programmer still needs to fix it, so that we already have developments I don’t think is much worse than the Germans!

      We follow the precepts of our ancestors: "A bullet is a fool, a bayonet is well done"? wink It seems to me that this approach has lost relevance in the Great Patriotic War.
      I recalled this picture

      Polish cavalry attacks German tanks. As we know, in reality everything turned out to be sadder.

      As soon as the issue with a compact source of energy is successfully resolved, the soldier will finally turn into a knight in an exoskeleton and modern armor with all kinds of electronic stray. fellow

    As Hitler’s General Stirlitz said in a train about the American army (I liked this movie), Americans will be killed by a love of technology. Such a suit requires a soldier to have outstanding knowledge and skills ... Which means it is intended for piece use.
    And according to the logic of things, such soldiers will die in a real war in the first days, well, in extreme cases, in the first month of the war ... It is much more efficient to go along the beaten track — a soldier should be equipped to perform a specific task ...

      Such a "suit" does not require special knowledge and skills, put on and turned on, use the information received. The unit commander knows the location of all soldiers, armored vehicles, information about all identified targets is available to every soldier, target designation is possible for armored vehicles as well as aviation, UAVs.

        To "use" such a suit, a soldier needs VERY AND VERY cooked. Perhaps a certain number of personnel fighters will master this miracle. But when they will be crushed (and they will be crushed in the very first days of a serious mess) and simple hard workers from the plow will go to the army - then completely different factors than the “suit” will play the main role.
        Say - "does not require special knowledge." This is an illusion. If you give today's advanced “electronic” soldier, for example, such a “gadget” as the “slide rule” (which every schoolchild was able to use in the 70s), it will take some time to even learn how to multiply and divide on it (I already silent about more complex operations). Modern network-centric equipment is much more complicated and, the lack of experience in its operation, and especially the lack of elementary training and practice in computer technology, will nullify all its advantages. Those. - Something will be useful, of course, but not so much that it is critically important. IMHO.

    Everything is verified in practice. In a local war or in operations such as Afghanistan and Iraq, such systems probably work. In the event of a global war, using all electronic warfare systems, knocking down satellites, or even using nuclear forces, electronics will die. And for the most part, all this equipment will be just an extra load.
    Apparently, no one is preparing for such a war. Either the West hopes that the US missile defense will be able to stop all Russian missiles, or simply outbid all the tops of the Russian Federation.

    A soldier and a junior commander in a field need reliable communications, decent body protection, and well-designed unloading.
    Communication in battle is a priority and a lot depends on it, the presence of a positioning system on a map of the area is also an excellent thing.
    Unloading will help to carry optimal ammunition, power and other elements.
    Armor protection is able to reduce losses in personnel.
    Against this background, the remaining "lotions" are certainly good, but not paramount. And that we have none of the above in the RF Armed Forces. Only one thing - a normal reliable connection.
    Sometimes it seems that research institutes simply play with interest in star wars, inventing various key chains, for more comfortable killing people.
    In the event of a full-scale war, all these gadgets will burn with a blue flame. And it is IMPOSSIBLE to hang all the facilities shown in the article on a draft army mobilized in a hurry. Or break or lose.
    But the special forces - reconnaissance, drg, snipers, etc., this is of course a good help.
    In short, give the troops, after all, body armor, unloading and radio stations (not stupid Granites) !! And give in the quantity that is required. Tired of waiting for the "Warrior" and other space equipment.
    If I am not mistaken, the advanced Roman Empire was brought to its knees by united tribes that did not possess the technology of the Romans. But having a sharp mind, courage and purpose.

          So the teachers at our first department were better than yours at the department of military history (political officer?)

          Who beat the Romans? Hannibal- there, military technology was, if not higher, then at the level. At the same time, tactics and strategy are head and shoulders above the Roman ones.
          The Parthian kingdom is generally steep to impossibility. Three Roman emperors were killed and one was captured. For the rest of my life. They had equal in strength infantry and on their heads the best cavalry. See Parthian Arrow
          The Germans in the Teutoburg Forest. Here, yes, the Germans did not know how to fight in formation. But they had a leader of the Cherusks Arminius, who received a military education in Rome. He then forced the Romans to battle where they could not use their advanced technical and tactical training. So it was in this case that the best ability of the Germans to fight out of order played its main role.
          Visigoths who took Rome. They are called tribes, but in reality they were none other than the Roman army.
          Vandals. A slightly different situation. The persecuted tribe, which reached the unprotected coast of Africa in the area of ​​the former Carthage, captured this rich province, and settled there, gradually civilizing. And only after that, after several decades, they decided to put Rome in its place. By the way, these "wild tribes" were Christians.

          Because we study history from Roman sources. And they even considered the Greeks barbarians.

      By and large, both you and those who answered below (or above))) are mistaken.
      First, do not confuse the chronology. In each period of Rome there were different circumstances and enemies.
      1. Ganibal - advanced "mercenary" - troops, Rome dragged by the "bodies" and the spirit (the Romans did not have any equal as a commander, but mother was not sorry for patriotism). The issue of technology is not particularly worth it. Carthage technology has been advanced overall. (200 thousand years BC)
      2. Parthians - collided 150 years after Ganibal) There were infantry! But heavy. and after 500 years, cavalry was considered advanced. (plus horse archers) The Romans didn’t have anything like this, such troops appeared only in Byzantium (in terms of training and combination) There were almost no frontal fights in their wars ... otherwise the Romans would have won ... There was a starfleet in pzstine horse-drawn infantry archers and then chasing
      of this infantry ... that’s all) (And by the way the Trojan, for example, Persam kicked ass)
      3. Germanic tribes from the invasion of the Cimbrians and Teutons to M. Aurelius (100 BC - 180 AD) - The tribes did not have tactics, but there were a lot of them and they were HEALTHY!) In direct clashes, among the Germans , with a more or less equal number, there were no chances (the Teutoburg forest was an exception and there were already as many as 3 legions out of 30).
      4. Actually the defeat of the "legions" - the "tribes" - starting from around 200 AD such a thing as "legion" - a universal, highly-trained heavy. the infantry was gone could hold something like a phalanx (no cohorts or maniples ... than the advanced legions were glorious) And yes, the new tribes had stirrups and saddles, advanced military technologies. Considering that legions simply didn’t exist in norms, and there was hell and some kind of cavalry ... then the result is logical en
      P.S. Look at the dates, and do not confuse, pliz, different periods of time and different armies of the Empire, otherwise it’s like comparing life on the Kalka river with the Mongols and the Great Patriotic War (hyperbole of course ... but the time is almost the same thing))))

    There are two main thoughts in the comments.
    The first, "Grapes is green" (s), the second is "this is not for the infantry, but for all special forces."

    In the first I have nothing special to say, but in the second ... The infantry we have at the moment is the least prepared part of the SV. And it suits everyone. Everyone is happy with the situation when special forces are used as elite infantry.
    The Germans just think differently. Therefore, they supply the kits, apparently, to their rapid deployment forces. To significantly increase their combat effectiveness.

    GRU needs completely different kits. With completely different possibilities.

    An abundance of various devices is certainly good. But it is almost impossible to carry all this wealth on yourself constantly. In addition, the serviceman will be constantly tied to the base with interchangeable power sources. Again, how all these subtle things will behave in not very comfortable conditions - frost, swamp, dust, sand, etc.

      They will behave quite adequately. Developers are unlikely. At the same time, it is much easier to achieve the normal operation of such pieces in extreme conditions than to do the same for weapons and equipment. After all, they have almost no moving parts.

        Carry equipment with no idea of ​​his work is reasonable ?? Better an artilleryman, you can even talk to him.

        No problem can be solved yet. In computer games, yes, no problem. Docked to the charger, chick and all, you can wet the enemies further. Battery charging is a problem in the field, and the reliability of these batteries is low, to say the least.

        They will not lead adequately. There is nothing adequate in the field. This is all an aggressive environment, for any mechanism, even without moving parts. Recall - a simple anvil and it rusts in a field in the fresh air.

        Of course electronics is needed. I navigated two battalions on the navigator at night in full fog to a given area. Without it, they would have lost their way specifically and would have run into where it is not necessary. But I also saw electronic things lying around in armor many times, which the company and platoon simply have no time to charge. Battery capacity is not ICE. That's all.

          They will not lead adequately. There is nothing adequate in the field. This is all an aggressive environment, for any mechanism, even without moving parts. Recall - a simple anvil and it rusts in a field in the fresh air.

    Will not turn.
    Exoskeleton (from the Greek. Έξω - external and σκελετος - skeleton) - a device designed to increase human strength due to the external frame.
    The exoskeleton repeats human biomechanics for a proportional increase in effort during movement. According to open press reports, actual models are currently created in Japan and the United States [1]. The exoskeleton can be integrated into a spacesuit.

    For a very long time it will be the war of people hung with iPhones.

    Communication and traditionally beautiful optics have always made German soldiers one of the best.
    Modern combat goes into night battle, where night vision devices and the ability to use them wisely are in the first place. Batteries are charged from any combat vehicle.

          Haha, really similar articles, but I partially agree with you. Indeed, many post the same article. But you know that having prepared and sent an article for moderation to admins, there are also a lot of forum users with the same articles besides you. The admin, as I understand it, eliminates similar articles, but he is not a robot to remember all the articles - were they previously posted or not. And the second reason for posting the clones is that not all members of the forum have time to read and follow absolutely all the articles, so as not to be repeated. Obviously you have more free time, since you are not mistaken.

    I agree. You cannot save on equipment, history and experience are proof of this. Somehow I watched a telecast about a fought war, so to my surprise it turns out we had an assault group equipped with an armor - such as something like a medieval soldier. According to statistics, the survival of such fighters has increased significantly.

      Under the "Sagittarius" it is necessary to redo the staff structure, introduce advanced artillery and aviation spotters with the minimum necessary knowledge of the subject. Trained contract sergeants.

        And I read somewhere that the Russian Ministry of Defense wants to conclude a contract with the French for the supply of their equipment, since our “Ratnik” is inferior to them in all respects. Especially in the field of optics, electronics and night-vision devices. That is, the main elements of the equipment. Interesting will buy or not?

          They tried to conclude such a contract in order to purchase a small number of kits, work out their combat use, and then submit requirements for the industry to manufacture their own. Because, as a matter of fact, we have everything. It just needs to be assembled and delivered to the troops.
          "Sagittarius" for the infantry is redundant, its main function is to detect targets and transmit information about them upstairs. Intelligence, artillery, aviation is his niche.

    It is necessary to fight without leaving the office. Hack! He nullified the enemy’s accounts, there was nothing to pay the salary of the enemy’s troops, there was nothing to feed the soldiers, the missiles from where they flew out - they arrived there. That’s the whole war! Cheap and cheerful!

    That you are all so wound up. The article refers to the armament of 900 people. This is clearly a quick reaction force for modern conflicts involving NATO. This uniform does not imply work in difficult conditions (electronic warfare, lack of normal communication, unprepared rear areas). We, too, will not be dressed all. All this equipment makes the work of special forces more efficient, reduces casualties (?). No more. So far, apart from beautiful pictures, I have not seen anything. No need to chase anyone. We calmly make our equipment, bring it to mind and order. To the enemy (do you really think this will work against us?), She does not give any advantage.
