Russia Boasts Soldier Armor Tested in Syria Has Perfect Protection
 
Quote:

Russia's military testing body has said that its new body armor system for soldiers has proven itself on the battlefields of Syria, a war where the country does not claim to have ground troops in combat roles, state news agency RIA Novosti reported on Wednesday.

The Ratnik armor system is Russia’s nascent personal equipment system for troops, intended to increase protection and connectivity among forces. Limited use of it began last year and Russian troops in Syria are apparently already sporting it.

Perfect protection from what calibre, at what range and fired at what velocity?

Perfection. You heard it from the same sort of people that write press for Kim Jong Un... :p

Looks like US Army IOTV and helmet with the same pattern and cut for the most part. They can claim its better, but the technology for affordable, lightweight body armor is pretty much maxed out. I'm sure they prefer their and say its better and the US will prefer its own and say the same. The Israelis probably have the best and most practical.
