As the portal armyrecognition.com reported, at the Defense & Security 2017 exhibition, which is taking place in Bangkok these days, the Japanese company Devtac presented a new ballistic helmet mask.


A tactical ballistic helmet called the Ronin meets the American Level IIIA reservation level, withstanding hitting .44 Magnum pistol bullets. The helmet-mask is made of Kevlar panels with a polymer coating.

Japanese company introduced a new ballistic mask-helmet


Ronin consists of two components - the front part and the helmet. Between themselves, they are connected with a powerful neodymium magnet with a maximum degree of magnetization (N50). If necessary, you can install mounts for various accessories on the Ronin.
Helmet mask lenses are made of polycarbonate and are removable. According to the developers, they are arranged in such a way as to provide a viewing angle in 160 degrees. At the same time, Devtac has provided anti-misting protection from the inside - a miniature air duct and fan system is integrated into the Ronin, providing full ventilation.

Devtac calls their creation the first fully closed ballistic helmet providing full Level IIIA protection and a high level of visibility. According to the developers, Ronin is already being tested in several units of the special forces, including the American SWAT, reports "Warspot"

    And they came up with such a name - Ronin! Is this what everyone who puts on renegades can record?

      Talos is
      In May 2015, a message appeared that the American company Revision Military had shown a full-size prototype of a “suit for kinetic operations” (Kinetic Operations Suit), placed on a mannequin [1]. According to the assurances of the company’s representatives, the suit’s armor protects approximately 60% of the human operator’s body surface from rifle ammunition, while conventional modern body armor has the value of this parameter about 18%. The combat component of the costume includes a supporting exoskeleton, which redistributes the weight of the helmet with a night vision device, armor and equipment, transferring them to motorized power drives. Particular attention is paid to protecting against cervical spine and lower back load. In addition, the suit is equipped with a cooling system located behind the shoulders and allowing you to maintain a constant temperature inside using water, which is pumped through a system of tubes with a total length of about three meters [1]

    Ronin (浪人, ro: Nin, lit. букв “wandering waves” + 人 “man” = “wanderer”) - a declassified samurai of the feudal period of Japan (1185-1868), who lost the protection of his overlord, or failed to save him from death. The etymology of the term ronin dates back to the periods of Nara and Heian, when he meant servants who fled from the lands of his master.

    apparently the helmet exactly matches its name wink what do you call a yacht ...

        I wonder how they solved the problem of keeping what's inside. Back in the Middle Ages, helmets were made quite resistant to external destructive influences, but they had a significant internal volume - the head did not lie anywhere on the surface of the helmet. Here it is made almost in a cast. If this is the case, then a hit of a bullet (especially of such a significant caliber) will have a guaranteed consequence of a severe concussion. With especially unsuccessful hits - frontal to the frontal part - definitely knockout, rupture of the cervical vertebrae request who knows, but there is a chance. Interesting thing, I would like to get acquainted with the test results

          Most likely through controlled destruction. As is done in the same bulletproof glass, or in ceramic plates of bulletproof vest.

        Put on a helmet (you can replace it with a book, the armor properties do not matter)) without a tulie and ask the sledgehammer to saddle you in a bastard, and then if you can, of course, let us down your experience (I did not call for self-harm, especially since the person writes that all the stories).
        Why without a bullet system you ask, but because it does not have a bullet system in this ersatz helmet and the rear floor sphere CLIPS to the MASK

        Particularly successful people manage to break the cervical vertebrae after falling from their own height. So with a happy combination of circumstances, it is very possible to even die from a 44 caliber bullet getting into the lobeshnik.

      The Japanese company Devtac has developed one of the most reliable helmets on the market. Tests of a product called Ronin Kevlar Level IIIA showed that the helmet is able to protect even from 44 caliber bullets. The helmet has a collapsible design, and the fastening element uses powerful N52 neodymium magnets that reliably hold not only the occipital and facial segments, but also armored plates.
      The ergonomic frame is equipped with a built-in ventilation system with two microcoolers having an adjustable rotation speed. Specially designed super strong polycarbonate glasses are fog and do not fog up in any weather.
      Thanks to the system of adjustable straps thought out to the smallest detail, the helmet reliably adjusts to any size, and the distance between the left and right ear tips is from 17 to 18 cm. It withstands impacts of 600 fps (182,8 m / s). You can wear optical glasses under the helmet and it’s great Suitable for protection during extreme sports, airsoft, as well as for Halloween parties.

          you do not confuse the pistol bullet and ak-74
          In addition, do not confuse the energy of a bullet when flying out of the barrel and when hit
          even at 50m there is already a significant loss of energy.
          there are no 959 there when hit. As for the strain energy after impact,
          What matters is not energy, but momentum. It is the impulse transmission (I will not describe the process in detail) that causes structural changes, and the impulse depends on the speed linearly, rather than squared, which significantly increases the importance of mass.
          Therefore, hitting a 14.5mm bullet at a speed of 400 km / h (P = mv, E = mv2 / 2) is often worse than hitting a 5.45 bullet at a speed under 800 km / h, in which the energy just rolls over.
          And so the fragments break their necks no worse than bullets when hit in a helmet, having modest energy.
          Energy matters only when it gets into the flesh and destroys a bullet or changes its trajectory and a significant expenditure of energy for braking when a process is close to absolutely inelastic impact (the kinetic vectors of the bullet and target begin to coincide), but we are talking about a helmet.

    Apparently because of this, our spheres do not fasten in a combat situation? From the pistol bullet, of course, it will not break, but from 5,45 and higher it is easy. There is a problem of fracture of the cervical vertebrae when the bullet hits from the Second World War. The neck breaks easily not only from the bullet, but also in accidents with fastened seat belts, for the same reason our paratroopers do not jump in helmets, but in helmets, so that when filling the dome the neck does not break, due to the fact that there is excess weight on the head, and not at all because it softens the landing. Just because this is not actively voiced in medicine does not mean that there is no problem, just if you raise this problem is open oh, horseradish make the helmet put on a soldier later .. Or do you think that an autopsy is done for every killed soldier? Usually, the bullet-free action of a bullet is written without understanding, the neck is broken or the brain just spilled out from the blow. very large quantities.

    Well, what a cool thing, I would have accepted as a gift) The only thing that seems to be that the helmet can withstand a direct hit, but the neck is unlikely) it may be ballistic, you have to understand the path along which the head flies off)) But vidoc yes, test.

    I think that protruding corners, edges, and also hollows are not a good idea. If the fill is small, then it will cling and look for where to fit, and not fly off. If the hop arrives, then he will have something to catch on. And from different angles the arrival along the cassette is unclear what will turn out to be ... Maybe it makes sense to go along the path "helmet + visor transparent + visor bottom"
