Somebody decided to mount optical sight from RPG-7V ("PGO-7V", 2.7x) on AK (both 5.45 and 7.62), like some of Soviet Army soldiers did in A-stan and find out how to use it and why people were doing th

Also few rare photo from Directorate A facility (i guess).   Some of them translated:   Also, MP-5s if i see it right.

Rheinmetall has won the first request for proposals for preliminary studies relating to European Union defence research financed by the EU’s European Defence Union.

Under the GOSSRA project, studies will be conducted into developing an open reference architecture as the basis of EU-wide standardized soldier systems. This includes electronics, voice and data communication, software solutions, man-machine interfaces, sensors and effectors.

So no complete system but the standards for other systems.
But Plugs, formats etc.

The IDF has purchased 2250 FCS units for rifles, to be delivered by 2020. 

A first batch of 250 units will be delivered by the end of this month (March), and will become operational with the Givati infantry brigade.


The system allows the soldier to first designate a target, and fire only when the gun is aimed at the target.
