    Ya, have seen that, its in layers.

    But does the Kevelar Helmet gives you protection against AK47 7.2 mm or just 9mm bullet ??

    Never mentioned that. I'll ask if I got the chance.

    Sir, don't you think that's the adaptation, the Pataka was developed by one Major I suppose. However what I actually mean was something else such as wooden board fixed in front of the wind shield of the vehicle, a desi jugaad to make it bulletproof from the front.

    1) IA has been cheap and gone for a bolted helmet
    2) a real shame about the lack of MACS but to be expected (again, IA being cheap)


    + no pics of the Commander Mukut Helmet with the Comms integrated?

    ++ Hasn't the IA also gone in for an emergency buy of plate carriers/BPJs along with this fast tracked helmet deal?


    +++ Frankly CRIMNAL it has taken this long to take such basic steps when the expertise exists within the country.....

    "Finally" is the right word, let's hope the next round of improvements don't take endless decades also but I am not overly optimistic.


    The Army is where procurements go to die.......

    After all the hype and promises for FINSAS (helmet mounted displays, integrated communications and personal computers, health mointiring etc etc) it's pretty pathetic that THIS is the most progress that has been made almost a decade after FINSAS was kicked off.......

    It is not a standardised equipment listing hence Indian Army will be misleading

    What Ghataks have today is what "regular" troops will have in 2-4 years.
