New military uniforms protect Russian soldiers from shrapnel

The emergence of new materials and technologies as well as changes in the tactics of combat operations and warfare dictate the need for the development of uniforms and protective gear for soldiers.
Russian soldiers now use second-generation Ratnik uniforms, which should be replaced by the field-tested third-generation Sotnik uniforms.
The promising “Sotnik” suit is Polyethylene fibers based, which should reduce the weight of the suit and the gear used by Russian soldiers as well as effectively raise its protection levels.
The military uniform and fourth-generation protection gear are called “Legionnaire” and will be equipped with composite shock-absorbing armor capable of stopping shrapnel flying at speeds of up to 670 m/s, effectively protecting soldiers from bruises, broken bones, and punctured organs.
