Military are not satisfied with the existing batteries because of their large size, which create an additional burden to the outfit, said the deputy chairman of the Military-Industrial Commission Bochkarev.
“Rosatom State Corporation develops new batteries for equipment “Ratnik”. We have already received technical solutions: reducing weight by 2-3 times and increase of the work duration by 3-4 times. These are very good technical parameters,” said the representative of the Military-Industrial Commission.
Bochkarev is sure that the batteries will be massively used by the military in 2015.
Combat equipment “Ratnik” was first presented at MAKS-2011, however, the development and testing continues. The gear includes vests, helmets, automatic, upgraded machine guns and sniper complex set for water purification, the elements of technical communication, giving the possibility to receive information.
