BEIRUT, LEBANON (11:20 A.M.) – Russian forces have acquired heat-invisible camouflage uniforms as part of the new Ratnik infantry combat system which is very slowly being introduced into military service.

According to reports from Russian sources, the new uniform works on the basis of being made up of so-called ‘infrared remission’ materials that distort heat wave lengths emitted by the human body, giving the silhouette of soldier wearing the uniform a scattered and hard to recognize appearance when view through night vision lenses.

Obviously, the new uniform has been created with the aim of reducing the risk to Russian soldiers of being accurately detected (and fired upon) when encountering an enemy equipped with thermal sighting gear.

Apparently the new uniform is already available for service having being developed, tested  and proven to standards that meet the requirements of the Russian military.
