The troops receive protection kits OVR-3Sh

The beginning of the new year is always associated with new deliveries of weapons, equipment, equipment and special equipment. As promised earlier, the army began to receive new systems, including special protection suits, OVR-3Sh. Plans for the supply of these products were announced in December last year, and now the troops received the first production models. With the help of new suits, fighters of a number of units of the armed forces will be able to more effectively accomplish combat missions with less risk to health and life.

About the future supply of suits OVR-3Sh and other similar equipment became known in early December last year. On December 2, the head of the engineering troops of the armed forces, Yuri Stavitsky, said that next year (2016) two new protective suits would begin to be purchased. This equipment is intended for engineering and engineering and assault engineering units. New costumes differ from each other, and their composition depends on the intended tasks. When developing such equipment, an attempt was made to introduce a mass of new ideas and solutions aimed at increasing the level of protection of fighters.

Not so long ago, new units were formed as part of the engineering troops. Thus, as part of the 1 Guards Engineering and Sapper Brest-Berlin Red Banner Order of the Suvorov and Kutuzov Brigade, a new engineering battalion of assault and demarcation was created. It is this subdivision, as well as battalions of other brigades of engineering troops, must now receive and use new means of protection, including sets of IAD-3Sh. It is assumed that modern protective suits will allow the soldiers of the engineering battalions to effectively solve the tasks.

The protective suit OVR-3Sh was developed by Fort-Technologies, which already has extensive experience in creating modern personal protective equipment and armored vehicles. The new project used both proven and proven solutions and new ideas that were not previously used in domestic developments of a similar nature.

The main element of the OVR-3Sh kit is a Caspian protective suit. Its main elements are the jacket and pants, on which are mounted the elements of protection and means for transporting ammunition, etc. freight. A characteristic feature of the costume is the architecture of protective equipment. It consists of rigid metal, plastic and ceramic plates, as well as flexible elements made of aramid fabric. The correct combination of rigid and flexible elements allowed to ensure the highest possible level of protection while maintaining the convenience of operation and mobility of a fighter.

The torso of a fighter dressed in an OVR-3Sh suit is protected by a set of rigid and flexible elements. In front and behind in special pockets of a vest stacked hard blocks, which are a combination of metal, plastic and ceramic armor. For greater ease of use, the front part of the protection is divided into two panels: the top, carried in the vest, and the bottom, secured in a separate cover and protecting the groin area. During the tests, the thoracic and dorsal blocks confirmed the possibility of protection against the bullets of a SVD rifle (cartridge 7,62x54 mm R). When firing from a distance of several meters, the armor blocks were not completely punched: there were holes on the outer surface, bulges on the inside, but there were no through holes.

On the side, the body of the fighter is protected by blocks of aramid fabric, capable of withstanding shelling from an 9-mm pistol. Similar linings are used to protect other areas of the body. With their help, it is proposed to protect the joints of the hands and feet. Other parts of the limbs, in turn, are covered with rigid protective elements.

The most important feature of the Caspian costume and the IOB-3Sh kit is the use of a set of sensors that facilitate combat operations. Each fighter using such a suit receives special equipment that monitors their health. With the help of wireless communications, the unit commander can receive information about the condition of the fighter and promptly find out which of the soldiers was injured or killed.

For added convenience, most of the outer surfaces of the protective suit are covered with MOLLE lines, on which the fighter can secure pouches and other equipment. Their composition and installation configuration are determined by the fighter in accordance with personal preferences.

To protect the warrior’s head, a helmet of the “Warrior Shako-RSP” helmet, which can withstand the penetration of fragments and bullets of some types of rifle fire, is included in the OVR-3Sh kit weapons. The helmet is equipped with headphones with active noise cancellation, anti-splinter transparent shield, laryngophone and lantern. If necessary, instead of the shield can be used glasses with the appropriate characteristics. In the case of the use of additional equipment on the frontal part of the helmet provides for unified mounting.

The back of the armor unit - no holes, no penetration. Photo

All elements of a protective suit for transportation are folded and packed in two bags. Dimensions of bags with a suit allow one fighter to carry all their own means of protection without any problems.

The composition of the armament and the additional equipment of the fighters of the assault and brigade engineering unit using the OVR-3Sh kit depends on the task and other factors. Soldiers must use regular small arms, and may also use some additional funds that come with a protective suit. With the help of such equipment it is proposed to solve a wide range of various tasks.

Together with other equipment, a fighter can use a sapper machete with a scabbard, combined scissors, an assault shield and other wearable equipment. In addition, the kit includes an assault ladder, equipment for knocking out doors, various tools, including for carrying out explosions, etc. The composition of the optional equipment of the OVR-3Sh kit is determined in accordance with the terms of the tasks to be accomplished, which are characteristic of the assault and firing units.

According to reports, the OVR-3Sh kit has already entered the series and has recently been delivered to the troops. With the help of this equipment, the fighters of the engineering troops are able to fully perform combat missions in difficult conditions, including under enemy fire. Available personal protective equipment can save the soldier from bullets and splinters, which will allow him to continue working or, in the worst case, to get rid of only minor injuries. In addition, the kit includes additional tools and tools necessary to perform certain work.

In parallel with the set of OVR-3Sh for engineering and assault divisions, the production of a similar system for engineering-sappers began. Such a kit has a different composition and other protection characteristics associated with a different list of tasks. As well as OVR-3Sh, sets for sapper divisions are now produced serially and delivered to the troops. The creation of two new protection complexes allowed to increase the security of the fighters and to facilitate the implementation of the tasks assigned.

              Given modern materials - fine. Bullet-proof vest of the 6th class of protection within 12 kg. Higher protection, for example from ammunition of 12.7 mm caliber for a person, is simply unaffordable, at least ensuring an acceptable weight and injury resistance at this stage is impossible, as they often forget about the dynamic impact of a bullet.

      Altyn protects the face more, but it would be difficult to remake it in Kevlar, as I understand it, with such a plastic visor it can be labeled through a mechanical sight, it doesn’t work, you need a collimator and with moles a bit overdone why they protect the groin on the armor and the legs too request and so much good

          Weight - 3,7 kg

          Complete set - a helmet with a cap comforter, an armor plate with polycarbonate bulletproof glass (viewing angle of mountains. 270 gr., Vert. 55 gr.),
          built-in headset
          I apologize, but Altyn is 300 grams lighter and has the same class of protection. I just did not understand. Did you write about the new one?

    It’s a life set, but for such a visor, you need a breathing system like that of an old gas mask with glass blowing. Strange glass does not cover the throat. It’s time to put the glass and helmet on the shoulders and not on the head. The left shoulder needs to be covered with more powerful overlays and stronger to close groin and hips. Well, and of course, for training in it add weight weights. + A set that does not overload the spine. It is known that prolonged wearing of the bronick leads to a herniated intervertebral column.

    Bullet-proof vests Sapphire SPETS. Dream of "Motorola". In the photo Gleb Kornilov. Model, tested in the conditions of battles on the battlefield. Features of the armor set:
    - Chest, back protection of 5 cells. The chest plate is enlarged and rounded in body shape;
    - Shatterproof soft protection from Kevlar neck, sides, upper chest, groin, shoulders and forearms.
    In the groin, a removable armor plate of 3 cells was added to Kevlar.
    - Protection of the lower abdomen is made by armor plates on the principle of scales. This allows you to freely sit in body armor.
    - Added the MOLLE system, which allows the use of body armor as an unloading;
    - Complete arm and leg protection with a movable articular cup.
    - On the inside there are cushioning pads, a chevron pad added.

    Slings were sewn anywhere, absolutely without the participation of brains. You will begin to climb over the fence or slab, catch on the slings on the apron, know who to thank.
    It was impossible to master a complex shape visor; it was hard to make a triangular one - tapering to the chin.
    Why at the top of the helmet are Velcro ??? Are camouflage wraps on these Velcro sheets manufactured at an industrial pace? Remember in Israel they practice something similar, but not Velcro! Which are extremely prone to collect all sorts of dirt!

      Well, since there is a noctovisor mount on the helmet in front, it can be assumed that the wires of the batteries located on the back of the head are fastened with Velcro ... as unnecessary, they should be covered with panels with the corresponding part of the Velcro itself, or IR identifiers (now very fashionable thing), or reflective tags ...
      - And the trousers strongly resemble the creations of "Kitanika", and those on the trousers of the "molle" did not dare to sew slings ...

    The thing is interesting, but.
    1) Velcro is not a good mount. It should be smeared in oil, heated or clogged with mud - finitis. For episodic extinguishing (typical for special forces) it’s still going, for life in the field - I don’t know .. There is no experience. Can anyone speak out on this topic?
    2) the costume is fragmented. It consists of a large number of parts, which implies a great time for dressing and fitting. Plus, again, the possibility of losing one of this.
    The advantages of such an architecture include the ability to determine the configuration at your discretion and the ability to replace individual elements as they become obsolete or out of order.

    I warn you before you read such articles you need as much as possible be critical of this kind of information, if you look from the point of view of an average journalist, then this is a pure pair (and I really did not notice anything except a pair in this article). Try to go to the site of this sharaga))) yes yes, you won't be able to do nichrome, and this sharaga wants to supply some kind of "costumes" to comrade Yuri Stavitsky)))))))))

    about the costume itself)) this is a "masterpiece" of idiotism, I thought only the Arabs love it more and more steeper, but the developers of this crap outdid them, because, in general, I have never seen SUCH amount of MOLLE fastening in any suit)))) I wanted how good and it turned out striped crap))

      In our company there were armor plates (apparently also assault ones) with a full set of plates weighing 16 kg and the first rule when the body armor is on the range is removed only for sleep. Yes, and the morning run took place in them, well, to strengthen the spirit, walks of 20-50 kilometers were arranged in them. Checking the presence of plates I remember the company carried out using the butt wassat and you say 9kg.
