Intelligent Armour MACH Helmets

Just had an email from Alex at Intelligent Armour about their new range of ballistic helmets. I'm no expert on ballistic helmets so I'll let this excerpt from the website explain:

The MACH range is aimed at the Military and Police special tactical units and close protection teams, Intelligent Armour have upgraded our standard Military Advanced Combat Helmet MACH 1 and added Ops-Core 2010 ACH-ARC Kit & Ops-Core VAS Shroud to enhance compatibility with all NVG and communication systems.

The Ops-Core rail system will be familiar to anyone intently following the changes of equipment that UKSF units are going through. The American Ops-Core rail system featuring heavily on the FAST ballistic helmets now believed to be in use by Tier 1 UK Special Forces, as well as their US counterparts, a range very similar to Intelligent Armour's MACH helmets.

As well as the MACH+Ops-Core range, there are more traditional MICH/ACH and PASGT style lines to choose from. Each of the helmets in the range has a downloadable PDF fact sheet with a full description and specification, like this one for the MACH1+Ops-Core helmet.

If you want even more reassurance of the quality of these helmets, there is also a ballistic test report from Wiltshire Ballistic Services Ltd outlining the MACH1, 2 and 3 helmet's ability to defeat 9mm FMJ rounds to NIJ 0108.01 level IIIA.

As I said, I'm no expert and this doesn't mean a great deal to me, but sounds very impressive. Email the guys at Intelligent Armour or phone them on +44 (0) 1453 700574 for more information.

Intelligent Armour are also on Twitter and Facebook if you want to keep up to date with future products and services.
