The Russian army in the future may receive equipment, making the fighter invisible to thermal imagers and allowing them to blend in with the terrain. The development of chameleon equipment is already underway, said the CEO of CJSC “Cuirass” Vladimir Kormushin.
“Cuirass” is developing new equipment, made possible by the use of new materials, having the necessary properties. As Kormushin explained, the task is to disguise the fighter not with the help of various electronic or other devices, and through the use of materials, able to change their color due to special dyes. Ideally this would be a set., able to adapt to the environment, time of day, etc., that is actually a chameleon.
We strive to provide fighters with such a disguise, which could make him literally invisible to the enemy. Today we are tasked with sheltering military personnel in various wavelength ranges, including in thermal imaging. This can be achieved thanks to the emergence of new special materials.- RIA Novosti quotes the words of the CEO “Rent”.
Developments on this topic can be applied to create the equipment of a soldier of the future “Legionary”, which should appear in the mid-30s. According to Kormushin, prototype “Legionnaire” may appear in 2025 year, and 2035 equipment will begin to be mass-produced in the troops. “Cuirass” also involved in the creation of new equipment, developing the combat protective kit itself (BZK), winter disguise and goggles, ie. all the same, as for “warrior”.
The Russian army is currently using second-generation equipment “warrior”, which should be replaced in the future “centurion”, and there it is already up to “Legionnaire” will come. used photos:Ministry of Defense
