french counter terror and german counter terror use them, american helicopter pilots and mounted gunners use them as well IIRC.

most militaries issue goggles or glasses that protect from shrapnel, because shrapnel is more of a threat inna sandbox. For counter terror units kicking in doors, they have more of a concern taking a round to the face. Its not really useful for everyone to have a face shield.

The Swiss

Since that's where the Russians bought the helmets from at the start and then later made famous with their Spetsnaz.

Those tiny shields are cute, but what's the point ? They seem unecessary cumbersome.

you might need to cover more than one angle, and cover men in more than one position

if you are in the kind of position where you need an AK proof shield to get through, you're not likely to be in a situation where grenades are not an option

Only usefull against handgun calibers I presume ?

Grenades are not an option when hostages are around, like during last year events in france.

About ballistic shields, are they immune to 5,56 or 5,45 AP ?

What the fuck is the shield guy holding over his shoulder? Is that bunch of bananas ducked taped up?
>>
>>28459617
Some sort of sponge or cloth. It's to not hurt his shoulder if he has to let go of the shield to grab his gun or something else.
>>
>>28459617
it looks like a shoulder thing to bear some of the shields weight on his shoulder
>>
>>28459617

It's attached to the shield so you can rest the weight of it on your shoulders, instead of trying to hold it up with just the arms.

Their hearing will be fine considering the fuckhuge suppressors on their guns, and he is holding it a strange way.
