The Russian military-industrial complex provides the country's army at a record pace. Peter Souchi analyzed the possibility of real changes in the armament of the RF Armed Forces in the near future. It is about the introduction of know-how and new technology. Yuri Borisov, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation, recently said that the country's leadership intends to provide the army with advanced weapons by the end of this year. The military observer in his article notes that the latest weapons were presented at the Army 2020 forum, and about 730 weapons and equipment were shown, including the T-14 Armata tank and the latest small arms.
The analyst further writes that we are also talking about the “related” armored combat vehicle T-15. In the small arms segment, the AK-12 will replace the AK-74. Other changes are expected, including an individual set of combat equipment for a soldier with a wireless communication system and body armor that protects the soldier's body by 90%.
