BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION
 1. Field of the Invention
 This invention is a modular back pack, assault pack and ammunition carrier system which allows military personnel to collectively carry weapon ammunition, personal sheltering materials, food and clothes and to rapidly release such weight in case of engaging in warfare.
 2. Description of Related Art Including Information Disclosed Under 37 CFR 1.97 and 37 CFR 1.98.
 Prior art systems consist of a back pack and a small bag on the back, and a vest with ammunition compartments in front. However such vest comes with problems. Problems of the prior art bag are being sweaty, pulling towards back and front, piercing the nape, not allowing wearing the backpack while assault bag is full, and disturbing the user because shoulder straps of backpack coincide with ammunition included in the front of the vest.
 The prior art back pack disturbs the user for being sweaty, is incapable of being released from the back during combat, is not able to be conveniently used together with an ammunition west, and due to its non ergonomic carrying system.
BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION
 modular back pack, assault pack and ammunition carrier system which allows military personnel to collectively carry all weapon ammunition, personal sheltering materials, food and clothes and to rapidly release all unnecessary weight in case of engaging in warfare.
 The invention provides ease of use to the sector which benefits from it due to functionality. It can also be widely-preferred due to its durability and wide application area.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION
 The present invention comprises a back pack (1), ammunition vest (2), female buckle (2.1), male buckle (2.2), assault pack (3), supporting framework (4), 1.5 liter plastic flask casing with thermal insulation (5), back pack release lock system (6), back pack release hinge system (7), ergonomic waist strap (8) and ergonomic back and shoulder strap (9).
 The back pack (1) is made of high-strength fabric. It is mounted on this module system which encompasses all personal, sheltering and over night sheltering equipments, with the use of materials on it and to supporting framework (4) by the bottom hinge (7) and upper lock (6).
 The ammunition vest (2) is made of high-strength fabric. This module manufactured individually for each weapon with zips on the front side is included in the system by fastening the buckles on the main frame to shoulder buckles (2.1). Side buckles (2.2) are fastened to the back buckles of the shoulder harness and adjusted. When the back pack (1) and waist strap (8) become unnecessary, this module is used only by being mounted on the shoulder buckle (8). The modules of the pack are joined with narrow-woven link and insert buckle/adapters (2.1, 2.2). The female buckle (2.1) is sewn with narrow-weave on its narrow edge. The male buckle (2.2) becomes ready when its corresponding part enters in and comes out of the perlon. Perlon male buckle (2.2) passes through the female (2.1) to be positioned facing one other, loose end of the perlon is pulled and stretched, when piece of string connected on the hole of female buckle (2.1) is removed it becomes loose, and when two cambers of male buckle (2.2) are pulled up by two fingers, buckles (2.1, 2.2) are separated from one another.
 The assault pack (3) is made of high-strength fabric. It is a small-sized bag with front-side zip which includes important exigencies. It is mounted on the back pack (4).
 Supporting framework (4) is the main frame on which all modules will be mounted. It may be produced of aluminum, composite or plastic materials. It is flexible. Its height is 57-59 cm, width is 11 cm at is narrowest point and 20 cm in the top part, and 17 cm in the bottom part. Thickness varies between 1 to 10 mm depending on the material.
 Thermo flask casings (5) (2) are mounted on the left and right side of assault pack. It is made of high-strength fabric. Water temperature can be maintained at fixed degree for a long time on account of 8 mm-thick polyethylene foam insulation material.
 A lock (6) is fixed with a male key with inner hole to be assembled at the top of the main bag (1) which passes through the holes and fixed with lock bolt. When two plastic lock bolts are pulled by two hands, the back pack (1) reclines due to its weight and the bottom hinge (7) is separated from the supporting framework (4) when it reaches a certain angle.
 The hinge (7) includes two plastic parts. The part with steel bar inside is assembled on the back frame (4). A hook-like part is attached to the main bag (1) module. Waist strap (8) allows the transfer of load from pelvis to legs. It reduces the pressure of load on spinal cord. It is thermoform and ergonomic. It is mounted by inserting the bottom part of supporting framework (4) into fabric envelope located at the rear of waist strap (8) and by inserting 1 velcro narrow-weave at the bottom part into the hole in the supporting framework (1).
 The back and shoulder strap (9) is configured for providing easy carriage on the back and shoulders. It is thermoform and ergonomic. It is fixed with two narrow-woven hook-and-loop fasteners of 5 cm each, passing through the holes in the supporting framework (4) and overlapping. There are three different levels of hole system for shoulder harness for people with different heights.
 The military personnel exigencies and ammunition carrier system comprises of modules mounted on a supporting framework (4). Primarily, the ergonomic waist strap (8) is assembled on the lowermost part of supporting framework (4). Back pack (1) release hinges (7) male section is mounted on the back part. Then one of the holes located on the upper part of the supporting framework (4) is chosen according to the user's height and ergonomic back and shoulder strap (8) is attached hereinto.
 The assault pack (3) with two 1.5 liter thermal insulation plastic flank casings (5) mounted on the sides, is attached to the other side of the supporting framework (4) with use of buckles. At this stage, the system is ready to be used when back pack is unnecessary. The back pack (1) is mounted by inserting the female hinge (7) into male hinge (7) located at the bottom of supporting framework (4) and locking the upper lock system (6). The ammunition vest (2) configured for the specific weapon is attached by buckles located on the front side of ergonomic back and shoulder strap (9). All buckles of the system are specifically configured for this product, which are light buckles that can be opened and closed and adjusted very rapidly. The system is carried on the back and it can be released by pulling the personnel release lock system (6) which loosens the back pack in the case of any action.
