This lighter, stronger combat helmet is headed to soldiers | Army Times

In about a year, a helmet under development that shaves nearly a quarter of the weight off soldiers’ current helmet and provides better protection will likely be on soldiers’ heads.

It uses the same materials, shedding an additional accessory currently fielded, all through a change in how the plastic used to make it is processed.

Developers with the Army’s Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center have recently showcased the Army Combat Helmet Generation II after first sharing some of the work being done on the helmet last year.
