New gas mask with protective helmet function developed for the Russian army

24

In the future, the Russian army may be armed with a new personal protective equipment. The development of a new gas mask, simultaneously performing the functions of an armored helmet, is reported by the Russian media with reference to a patent received by the developers.


The so-called armored helmet-gas mask was developed at the 27th scientific center of the Ministry of Defense. The new personal protective equipment not only protects breathing equipment, but also performs the function of protecting against damaging elements - bullets and shrapnel. The level of protection is not disclosed.

According to the description, the new gas mask consists of a body, a protective glass is made in the form of a visor, there is an intercom and a device for the safe intake of liquid. To protect against toxic substances, three types of filtering and sorbing elements are used. At the same time, the filters are not located on the front side of the helmet, as in modern gas masks in service with the Russian and foreign armies, but symmetrically on both sides in the temple-ear area. Filters made in the form of flat discs provide protection of military personnel from poisonous and toxic substances, radioactive dust and biological agents.

The new gas mask, according to the developers, has a number of advantages over existing models. So, the filters located in the area of ​​the temple-ear do not interfere with firing, in addition, they can be changed while in the area of ​​action of weapons of mass destruction. The gas mask can work in passive mode without discharging the battery, which was not the case on previous models of gas masks. Also, the new personal protective equipment has a "ready" mode, when using which, the transition to a combat position will take only 3-4 seconds, which is very important when the enemy uses chemical weapons.

Another and very important property of the new gas mask is the ability to protect a serviceman from shrapnel and bullets without using a combat helmet.

At what stage the work on the gas mask-armored helmet is not reported. Most likely, in the future, such personal protective equipment will be in demand not only in the RChBZ troops, but also in the entire Russian army.

      Apparently for intercoms?
      I can still imagine protection from fragments - use carbon glass glazing, as on ballistic goggles. But from bullets? !!!

        In my time, they managed with a membrane, but here, it seems, the broadcasting loud-speaking point is obtained or the built-in ventilator.

            An intercom is called a membrane, which is sometimes installed so that the commander can give commands and does not need a battery.

        For a long time already, and this is one of the new

        The visor has been certified according to the protection class BR-1, in accordance with GOST 34286-2017 and provides protection against Pst 9-mm bullets and their analogues.

      What is the battery for the gas mask?

      I think it's a typo. Probably it meant "filter".
      And it fits in the context: on all other gas masks you cannot be in a gas mask without using a filter, and when you are in a protective helmet, this function may be in demand.

      I thought the same. Maybe for an intercom? Or blunt.

      Is this what the article is about? If so, then good, otherwise I imagined something like this

      It became somehow uncomfortable ...

      This helmet does not quite fit the description in the article:
      the filters are not located on the front side of the helmet, as in modern gas masks in service with the Russian and foreign armies, but symmetrically on both sides in the temple-ear area.

      Generally, as stated, it is two in one - a gas mask and a protective helmet. Therefore, a regular helmet is not needed ... well, or as it is called today - a helmet.

        The same I hold this opinion. But I would formulate it differently:
        protective helmet with gas mask function.

    And when there is no danger from toxic substances, but there are hostilities and a helmet is needed, do you still need to wear it?
    Better still divide. We do not have normal gas masks with an intercom, but here is a whole complex. Maybe I fell behind, but before, only with an intercom-membrane were the officers' gas masks.

      I guess this device is not for linear parts. Spetsnaz, assault units of engineering troops.

      Just about ... and I thought about it! In my opinion, the "bulletproof gas mask" of constant wearing is too much! And the "armored helmet gas mask" will fit in the units of the RChBZ ...

      The article says that it is possible to disable battery... If this is a typo, and it is not the battery, but the filter that is being worn out, then everything is logical: the soldier (special forces) is in a protective helmet, and, if necessary, switches to filtering the inhaled air through a filter.
      For law enforcement agencies, where tear gas grenades can be used, such a helmet will be in demand.

    An interesting thing, to see how it looks, very interesting information.
    Before that, I saw filter elements placed in "uncharacteristic places" only in an American-Dutch helmet made in the 80s, and even then, it was made not for the army, but for work in dusty conditions.
    There, too, everything looked like a helmet with a visor, the filters were located in the back of the head, and air was supplied by two fans after lowering the visor in the direction from the forehead to the chin, which made sealing the front part unnecessary, but this, as I said, was a purely construction topic

      I also saw an American gas mask in the 80s, which had large "glasses" made of extra strong glass (or, more likely, plastic ...) and filtering "disc-shaped" elements on the "cheeks" ... What did I "like then" "is the small size of the" filters "and the ability to quickly replace them! There was a membrane to work with communications, and a "valve" for a flexible tube to drink water or nutrient broth ...

        We were shown at the officer training camp in a cropped division a training film about modern means of protection, a cool gas mask. Shown in the late 80s.
