|PDH presents its vision of the Future Soldier at MSPO 2013|
Polish Defence Holding is showing its plan for a Future Soldier System. Composed of a new modular weapon the MSBS-5.56 and special optics, PDH hopes this concept system will be the backbone of the Polish Army.
The MSBS-5.56 is produced by Fabryka Broni in Poland and will replace the Beryl assault rifle in service in the Polish armed and security forces. Using a 5.56 caliber the rifle will be available in classic or bull-up configuration. A grenade launcher can be fitted on both versions.
PDH also aim at replacing sniper rifles, grenade launchers and support rifles with its Future Soldier program. For that PDH relies on some of its companies DEZAMET for grenade launcher or Zaklady Mechanize for the sniper rifles.
For the future part PDH, uses a gunsight and an helmet mounted one. The gunsight called "Ruby" (or Rubin in Polish) is thermal gives the soldier the ability to stay hidden behind a wall while aiming at his target. The helmet mounted display is called Hummingbird (Koliber in Polish) and provide a night vision capability to the soldier.
