RUSSIA SAYS NEW COMBAT SUIT WILL SURVIVE .50 CALIBER BULLETS

Sharing is Caring!

The Russian state-owned military developer Rostec says that its next generation of combat armor will be able to withstand a direct shot from a .50 caliber bullet.

The armor, which will be the fourth generation of Rostec’s Sotnik, or Centurion, battle armor, is expected to become the most futuristic set of infantry gear out there, Task & Purpose reports, though it’s not clear when it will be ready for action. Regardless, the Russian military’s ever-improving battle suit systems are a sign that military technology is rapidly progressing toward the goal of giving soldiers seemingly-superhuman capabilities in combat.
