“A new generation radio communication complex with unique features that can outperform all other systems of the type is being developed. This system will be better than other radio systems created by other nations,” Arslanov said.
"In the near future, military servicemen and local departments will be provided with new-generation digital portable radio communication devices," Arslanov added.
According to Arslanov, the devices have already been successfully used by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and have been proved highly effective during the Sochi Winter Olympics.
