    I've been looking for a new helmet for a while, something to really really wind the RSM up. And watching Black Hawk Down the other day I noticed the Delta guys were wearing these really cool helmets with holes in -

    anyone know what they are called, where they come from etc?
     
  2. I think it's called a Protec helmet used by Delta Force or whoever back in the 90s because the standard issue helmet then was too heavy for them. Offers virtually no real protection from anything dangerous, apart from perhaps bumping your head on something. It's basically a sports helmet.

    Now they have brought in the newest ACH helmets, it's light enough and provides enough protection for all units, no-one uses those Protecs.
     
  3. if your going for the full attention RSM officer hating head wear maybe this is what you need.

  5. That should do the job, how about a couple of USMC stickers on the side as well?
     
  6. One of these should annoy your RSM
