The communication system will make it possible to exchange various types of information and coordinate soldiers’ actions in real time, he added. "It is too early to say that all communication means have been integrated into a single tactical helmet. I believe that this will happen approximately from 2022 to 2025. These are our plans," Romanyuta said.

The second-generation Ratnik combat gear includes individual armor, firearms, sights, reconnaissance equipment, etc. It has been supplied to the army, the airborne force and marine units since 2016.
