BBO sappers have received the latest protective suit "Falcon"

"The first batch of 10 kits entered the regular demining groups of the engineering compound stationed in the Khabarovsk Territory," the head of the press service of the TSO, Colonel Alexander Gordeyev, RIA "News".

The weight of the new suit is 8.5 kilogram, which allows sappers to clear all day. In the manufacture of armor plate "Falcon" was used lightweight and high-strength polyethylene, and not steel, as in other protective suits.

“Thus, the sapper in the Falcon becomes protected from mines having a contactless fuse and reacting to the presence of a number of metal. The fabric of the costume is made of non-combustible material, ”emphasized Gordeev.

The protective properties of the suit are maintained at temperatures from minus 40 to plus 50, it can be used in rain and sleet.

    Not bad at all. If you read between the lines, the high-tech industry in Russia is developing, despite the cries of various liberals like "Mustache is gone, soon we will export bast shoes ...." let the suit help them good

      Since the days of the USSR, it has become a tradition, at first, for inventing something for the military, and then for the civilian population they find application for their inventions. A lot of pure military medicine then goes into the usual (which is completely logical). So for example, at one time, secret equipment for the restoration of the muscular system for astronauts now migrated to civilian medicine.

        This is not from the time of the USSR - it is from the time of the existence of mankind. Worldwide, military technology has always made a huge contribution to technological development as a whole.

      In my opinion, a very clear confirmation of the thesis about the role of the individual in history. If under Serdyukov they tried to impress on us that lynxes and mistals are better than the products of our defense industry. Under Shoigu, it turns out that not a damn thing - our made in oboronprom is no worse, and in some places it will be better than import.
