Elevated levels of protection and super floatage – these are the characteristics of a new generation of body armor – “Korsar-MP”. It has no analogues in the world. By the end of the year all the units of marines have already adopted it. The first novelty is tested by the soldiers of Primorye.

Unique outfit was designed specifically for the marines and crew of warships.

“Beacon lights automatically and thanks to this it can be determined in the sea. Also, if a boat is floating, it can send a signal of distress,” the assault squad leader Vladimir Fruktov says.

Armor of 5 class protects against shots from a Kalashnikov or a sniper rifle at close range. The vest weighs just 3 kilos, that is half the weight of its predecessor. How convenient it is in a combat situation, the Marines show on the obstacle course. All equipment at the same time is carefully distributed directly at the vest.
