Russian military use exoskeletons in Syria. They have already been used in a combat situation..
The information agency RIA Novosti was informed about it in the state corporation "Rostec" during the international forum "Army-2021".
Passive exoskeletons, not equipped with engines, are used by sapper units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, performing combat missions in Syria. Their mechanical devices allow fighters to lift heavy loads and carry them long distances.. This reduces the load on the musculoskeletal system of the soldier..
Also the representative of the management of the state corporation Bekkhan Ozdoev, which is responsible for weapons, special chemicals and ammunition, reported another modification of the exoskeleton, equipped with electric motors. The use of this device allows to halve the load on the musculoskeletal system of a fighter., and also on 10-15 percent to reduce its energy costs while traveling. At the same time, a soldier is able to carry a load weighing up to 60 kilograms, and also shoot at 20 percent more accurate.
sensors, with which the exoskeleton is equipped, allows the fighter not to feel constrained in movement and to act intuitively.
It is assumed, that the device will soon become part of the equipment of the military personnel of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
