Caption: Testing military equipment. Soldiers using the prototype FELIN infantry system. FELIN is a French army project to provide infantry with integrated communication, sensor, and navigation equipment, as well as protection from nuclear, biological and chemical warfare. The soldier at left carries a modified FAMAS rifle with a camera and targetting laser. The soldier at right carries the PAPOP combined assault rifle and grenade launcher. Weapon-mounted cameras allow soldiers to fire without exposing themselves from cover. Deployment of FELIN is planned for 2006.
