Outfit Italian soldiers will become easier

28
The decision to simplify and facilitate the equipment of the “soldier of the future”, developed by a group of Italian companies led by Selex, was made after tests that were held in the south of Italy. Experts concluded that "a large amount of equipment limits the mobility of fighters and thereby increases their vulnerability," reports Rossiyskaya Gazeta with reference to the Defense News portal.




From the equipment, in particular, excluded tablets attached to the wrists of the soldiers. They will leave only the commanders. “Information about the current task, intelligence data, etc. should be displayed on these devices. Now some of this data, including the image with scopes weapons, will be reflected in helmet-mounted displays, ”writes the resource.

Wi-Fi communication systems will also be removed. Initially, they were intended to communicate the fighters with each other and the crews of military equipment at a distance of 100 m. The reasons for the rejection of Wi-Fi are not disclosed.

Another reason for simplifying equipment was the weight of the kit. “The command set the task - the equipment should weigh no more than 30-40 kilograms. In addition, a large data stream leads to an overload of the entire network and therefore information sometimes reaches the fighters with a delay. And this makes it difficult for them to perform a combat mission, ”the portal explains.

      I agree. Russia doesn’t need a warrior either, just how much electronics it costs, collimator sights in general corrupt. Only felt boots and a quilted jacket, only a Mosin carbine. And all kinds of camelbacks and other unloading should be left to the Americans, ours didn’t have time to drink water during the battle, and five rounds of rifle is enough to break the rail at a distance of a kilometer, we have the Spirit!

          A reasonable middle ground should be technically, otherwise the fighter will lose his “nose” altogether, he will hope for everything in electronics. soldier

    Which of the Italians are warriors? The main thing is that it would be beautiful and glamorous, they are not going to fight anyway.

      They can also tell us: Russians why do you need to fight, drink vodka, love women, go to the cottage. They are a member of NATO because they will fight against us.

      Now they have a LAN connection and each fighter has a 305m coil and a sysadmin to the platoon .. And in the battle, agents of providers turn around the fighters and offer to try their services ...

    We need to continue to improve the ammunition system and reduce the size of the electronics. Ideally, the fighter should see the image from the thermal imager on the target.

    If you can’t move fast, you lose, but you are most likely injured or killed. If your equipment is not the Armor of Absolute Invulnerability, then slow movement in battle is death. If you are overloaded with data, you cannot respond to the environment. The volume of attention in a person is finite, and not too large. Poking at the screen is a corpse! If the commander gives the order more than ten words in battle, he puts the unit at unacceptable risk. Etc.
    But you cannot convince cyber dreamers. They all hope to reduce the war to a safe and enjoyable game. Oh well.

      I completely agree with you, I wanted to sketch something like that, but did not have time. hi Overloading every soldier with equipment that is not related to the means of defeating the enemy is fraught with a loss of initiative and real mobility. Not everyone will have to shoot around the corner, so instead of a heavy television sight to look around that corner, I would prefer a couple of three hand grenades to throw at the same angle.

    It’s interesting, but how much does their equipment weigh now, if they want to reduce the weight to 30-40 kg.?

    Mark my words!
    Wars have become completely different. No more clashes of tens of thousands of fighters on the same battlefield. There will not be just thousands. The war becomes point, episodic, distributed and ubiquitous. Therefore, units are needed small, highly mobile, with high power and the highest level of communication.
    One person who is on the battlefield with weapons in his hands can not cope with the flow of information that can already be provided to him. Therefore, there is already a tendency to remove the information processing load from the fighter and shift it to the commander. Here, as has happened more than once, science fiction can be a good example. Remember the team of fighters in the movie "Aliens", which was controlled by Lieutenant Gorman of the armored personnel carrier. If the lieutenant himself was experienced and prepared, then everything could end differently. But then there would be no film. hi
    The number of such assistants will grow. These assistants do not need good physical fitness, health, their own shooting skills, etc. But they must think, compare data from the entire battlefield. And advise the fighter, help him in making decisions. If necessary, they will choose some specific information and pass it directly to the fighter. For example, an image from the nearest drone, a photo of a person, a license plate number of a car, etc.
