Will “21 Fighter” Overtake Competitors?


Back in 2009, in Moscow, at the Interpolitex-2009 security systems exhibition, a representative of the Central Research Institute (CRI) of the Russian Defense Ministry stated that, at the request of the Ministry of Defense, the research institute had begun work on the “second generation” combat equipment 21.

A new outfit is being developed for the airborne troops of the Marine Corps and Ground Forces, and it is planned to complete work on the creation of a new outfit in 2015. "Fighter-21" will be much easier than the first suit, will include life support systems, defeat, protection, control and energy. According to the creators of the new suit, "Fighter-21" in its effectiveness will not have analogues in the world. They also note that the existing set of first-generation combat gear already surpasses all of its Western competitors in some characteristics, in particular, in the degree of protection.



The promises of developers, of course, can not but rejoice - it is not known whether the costumes themselves will please in the future. It is already becoming a tradition in Russia that the most advanced and promising developments remain only prototypes, experimental models or, at best, are produced by microscopic batches.

The total amount of investment in advanced development is approximately 35 million dollars. Americans in the same purpose invested about 1,5 billion dollars.

But despite all the advantages of new equipment, few people believe that the “Fighter-21” will go into mass production. Maybe these suits can be used only by elite units and then in limited quantities. Sadly, this is a standard situation for today's Russia, the same was the case, for example, with “Shark” and others ...

    Now the times are not the same, the generals think more about their wallet than about the country! Vasily Filippovich Margelov put his son Alexander in a BMD-1 while testing the Centaur parachute platform complex.
    Now the sons of our elite are comprehending science more at Harvard and are not going to serve!

    Not very impressive. Ammunition for the "welder" is of some kind. By the way, as I understand it, is this a bulletproof vest on the dog? lol

    The armor for the dog is apparently light, i.e. protection against small fragments and bullets, with it is better than without it.
    Regarding dogs in general, they were used very successfully in Afghanistan.

    As for the welder’s mask, it seems that you can wear a gas mask under it without any problems.

    And do not judge strictly about the appearance, you can make a cool, very expensive costume, and because of the price, equip a company of honor guard with it. And you can make a relatively inexpensive and technologically advanced and equip three regiments. (exaggerate)

    Everything is cheap and very cheerful here.

    This would add an exo-skeleton, powered by heat from the fighter’s body (at the same time, you can also power the electronics), but I think so far, it’s strictly secret, like camouflage that adjusts to the terrain.

    Pancake. as always, they came up with some garbage. )) when our Americans adopt things, NATO or NATO will use robots)) and we will walk in bast shoes))))))))))))))))))))))))
    ... This helmet is so heavy that with a slight turn of the head you can break your neck))) and here also a camera with the size of a sledgehammer)) makes it easier for him to wear. shorter than NATO clothes a little better. ours, as always, are harder. as usual. ((for whom they don’t understand. You’ll run 500 meters in them and hang all the kapets even. Even lungs like the Olympian’s will not help))

    Barmitsa 25 kg weighed. Therefore, they did not accept it. As for FILIN. Then I watched a commercial about this kit. Even there you can see how uncomfortable the soldier is to move

    The camera on the helmet is clean show off, for some reason I don’t see the bracket allowing it to be lowered to the eye, and there is no projection system in the fighter’s eye either, so it makes no sense.

    No, the heat from the body will be enough maximum for the handheld to work, so I suggest additionally putting the turbo generator on gases, and intensively feed the fighters with peas and beans. wink

      - Pinned of course, but if you do not take these squalor with a bunch of electric motors and hydraulics, everything is much more interesting. About 3-5 years ago, in one popular science magazine, an article about the development of artificial muscle came across, that is, the algorithm of work is the same, is being reduced. For its operation (that is, reduction), electric current is required quite a bit. So look deeper, as they say.

      - take a closer look, this device drops to the level of the fighter’s right eye. I’m not sure, but judging by the photo, this is a monocle for observation, in the lower photo it’s just with an increase, on the upper one it seems that the infrared spectrum, thermal imager or NVD.

    There are no analogues in the world ... Well, yes, of course! Now, maybe not. Four years later, when the kit goes into service (if at all), the same Americans will develop a third or even fourth generation armored kit.

    It is planned to complete work on the creation of new equipment in 2015. ...... By 2015, with this attitude to the defense industry, all specialists will scatter in search of bread places.

    It certainly does not look bad, but I think our specialists will choose something "simpler" and it’s easier for them to carry this trash with them. There is no point in wearing clothes for a show, and no one needs it just to prove that the army is equipped with modern equipment.

    As the sad practice of Moscow Region shows, it doesn’t go further with the pomp of advertised exhibition samples, and when, finally, after the red tape comes to the troops, it is very different for the worse from the samples as happened with the uniform from Yudashkin

    The concept of the application is as follows: A fighter puts on a dog’s camouflage suit and from there controls a remote target robot in a welder suit. Attracting enemy fire at him and forcing him to give out his position :)
