"Cowboy" got on the tank

"Cowboy" got on the tank

New individual means of protecting soldiers and officers from thermal damage, bullets and shrapnel began to flow en masse into the Russian army.


The first batch of 6B15 “Cowboy” refractory sets is already being tried on by armored vehicle crews from the military unit of the Eastern Military District’s cover, which is deployed in the Jewish Autonomous Region. According to Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Gordeyev, chief of the press service of the BBO, to fully provide all such means of protection tank the crews of the Amur combined arms army are planned until July next year.

In the armored car especially you will not turn around, so the new defense of the soldiers and officers made quite compact. The kit, called the "Cowboy", consists of a bulletproof vest, lining up for a tank headset and a fireproof overalls.

A bullet-proof vest will protect the military officer’s back and chest from splinters and bullets, and his fire-proof overalls can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees Celsius. In addition, the material of the suit is able for some time to resist open fire. Designers of military clothing say that he is guaranteed to save the life of a soldier or officer if burning fuel splashes onto his uniform.

This is not the first protective kit adopted by our army. Two years ago, the engineering troops of the Ministry of Defense began to send special uniforms "Dublon", designed mainly to equip demining units. This kit is not afraid of bullets or shrapnel shells, bombs and rockets.

Flame retardant overalls can withstand temperatures up to 300 degrees and withstand open fire
Protective suit covers not only the head and chest of a person, but also his arms and legs. And the use of more than fifty light titanium elements in the design allows the serviceman to move quickly from place to place. For the sappers in battle, the enemy conducts a real hunt, therefore, the “motor” and protective advantages of “Dublon” were immediately appreciated by the troops. Even earlier, this was done at the Ministry of Internal Affairs, where the analogue of the military unit, the militia Zaslon, is successfully used.

The work on the creation of promising military equipment for soldiers and officers of the Russian army is also being completed. According to Deputy Defense Minister Yury Borisov, dozens of defense industry enterprises are involved in this process. They promise to give the military a product that is not inferior in its characteristics to the best world standards.

It is known that the new equipment "Warrior" will be integrated. That is, combining high functionality and reliable protection. Ten subsystems will provide the fighter with the opportunity to communicate with the commander in the conditions of strong radio interference, receive and transmit intelligence information, shoot without a miss and at the same time not be afraid that the task is interrupted by a stray bullet.

In addition, military equipment is made modular. For example, if a motorized rifle company will have to fight in a desert area, soldiers and officers will use only its elements. In the mountains - the second, in the settlements - the third. The approach of the generals to ordering new equipment is this: they do not want to buy separately batteries for radios, personal navigation devices, reconnaissance and so on.

Customers from the Ministry of Defense require: everything must mate with each other and not turn the soldier into a heavy truck.

        Meaning? What to do with the already existing ones - in villages and villages to distribute for use as motorcycles? And Chubais to order the development of nano-helmets, so as not to become impoverished at all? As for me - cheaply and angrily (about helmets), about the other parts of the kit - life will tell, the thing is just inventory, the prices are considerable. What if the seam threads climb, as it will be in the sock, will it not get into shreds if you get into the electrolyte ...
        Will it not work out as always - they will carefully fold it into a shell box and use self-tapping screws so that it can survive and get out only for window dressing, and for the staff, driving, TST - an old oiled-through patched-over jumpsuit. And God forbid, you have to use the miracle suit for the intended purpose - but the box treasured in the PPD remains.

          Maybe berets should not be bought if all the warehouses are heaped with boots? What is the point of buying new machines when the old sea? With this logic, you can generally not buy anything new.

            Apparently you have never been in a tank since you are making such statements, but you know that the worst thing is that now they even take such experts to work, what kind of helmets are for tankmen ??? You yourself shove at least once in the armor and not just sit, but drive a hundred meters on arable land and then you will understand the difference between a helmet and a headset.

        Good day, Alexander.

        The helmet is not so simple ...
        At first, he didn’t understand him at all - how to aim at him? A little lower in the comments reflected old doubts.

        It’s just that the headset doesn’t interfere with the tankman, but on the contrary, it protects against many angles and facilitates aiming to the commander, observation by the gunner, and most importantly, the mechanic pressing his forehead to the triplex.
        But how will the practice of using the new helmet pad show?
        It is really more convenient as an integral.
        Must watch.
        Sorry no reviews.

        And it looks a bit like an Israeli tank. And in it ... I think that it will be convenient to work with instruments aiming and observation.

            And face protection will require a COMPLETE alteration of the principle of "removal" of visual information, making ONLY television screens or helmet-mounted projections.

              They will take your eyes away - you will conquer the wolf. There are no systems that can even be approximately compared in terms of reliability ... But you can protect your face from fire. A pair of carbon dioxide sprays and a not very complicated thermal sensor with a chip. The gas ejection through diffusers near the face, somewhere in the cheek area, will provide 30-40 seconds of acceptable temperature. Enough to leave the cab. But if you don’t have time - no fire protection will help, you know yourself ... Oxygen will pull gas jets to the nostrils, the ejection effect. Why isn’t this costume option already equipped with such a simple thing? Are there really no brains? What nonsense ...

    As for the cowboy, graters in the troops have been going on for more than a year.
    It seems like in the 20th brigade (Volgograd) they were tested on "military" ones. I would ask ...

    Protection against splinters and chips from undermining inside the machine and general protection under small fire from the outside is of course needed as air.
    Fireproofing clothing is especially valuable.
    Helmet? Firstly, it should not interfere with aiming, without the headset's headband - in any way. And such a form as a "helmet pad" for a headset is the most suitable. Composite helmets-transformers may be better than it, but they are only being developed (there was an article recently on the Military Review).

    The questions are still the same:
    - How will it be convenient to shift back and up the visor of the sphere of such a helmet when aiming? Will it interfere?
    - How convenient will it be in such a kit to move when in the tank?
    To the commander: recharge PKT? Work on P-173 or Aqueduct? Load b / c in AZ?
    To the gunner: open the worm pair?
    To the mechanic: to crawl into the fighting compartment? Unlock the hero’s hatch?
    How much more difficult is it to “fall” under the armor and get out?

    I really hope that the Cowboy will live up to the aspirations of the tankers. We were waiting for something similar.
    Well, and the title ... the developers' fantasy is over, or what? We are waiting for what epithets will be awarded to its crews. “Mazuta” has unlimited fantasy.

      This outfit is a transitional, temporary solution. Before putting on supply of "Ratnik"

      But it’s interesting how questions of evacuation of crew members were thought out in this equipment when they were wounded in a tank?

        A loop. It seems that the new one will already be in overalls, working like the Soviet Sh-4. In the meantime, like this:

    I liked the old tanker, especially the winter fur one, but maybe this cowboy is also good.

      There is no need to bring the idea to the point of absurdity, crossing a non-combustible tank jumpsuit with protection from damaging elements with a diving deep-water bathyscaphe, OZK and an astronaut's space suit since then, in a hundred and one principle.

    At Drabkin, veteran tankers recalled Lend-Lease coveralls with asbestos thread, greatly increased the chances of jumping out of a burning tank. It seems that on our street, if not a holiday, then at least the order is outlined in the tank troops. Hurry to read reviews from users of these kits.

    It remains to attach the bottom mask to protect the whole face from injuries and injuries soldier
    ps. Tankers immediately began to look warlike and impressive, here is a striking example of how modern uniforms can affect the shell of a warrior!

    The right direction. Indus defense is all the same simpler and more reliable than endless creeps on organizing the protection of the crew from fragments by creating kick-ups and other things. And more economical. Tank in re-melting, recovery in salvage. And so the defense goes with the tankman. And finally, they took a direction in the real saving of the crew.

    Perhaps it hasn't changed, but, for example, "Chingachgook" is still more pleasant for the ear. smile

      Here the point is different, just discussed the need for a law on the protection of the Russian language, and here again "cowboy". And the fact that the protective form appeared already well, before, they almost did not think about it at all. If it turns out to be not very successful modernization, the main thing is to get off the ground.
