This is a unique development of Russian scientists for the army of the country. A newÂ assault bulletproof shield was called “Zabor” (“Fence”) which could be probably also listed in this post of today.
This powerful shield has a 5-class protection and can stop bullets of AKM, SVD, and even fragments of grenades, however it is rather heavy – 50 kilograms (110 lb).
As you can see it has a special corset with straps for fastening on a soldier’s torso, the shield itself inserts into special grooves on the corset.
Although it is a powerful shield and can protect from almost any weapon mentioned above, it cannot be called rather comfortable.
One cannot put it on himself, putting it off is even more difficult.
Fighters have a lot of various equipment on, even apart from this one, so it’s hard to imagine how they manage to move till you try it yourself.
