What does /k/ think of ballistic helmets?
This Devtac one is 5 lbs and has de-fogging fans in the eyes
Well, I'm sold!
>that thing looks ugly
>not knowing NCR Ranger helmet is best ballistic helmet
so how hard would it be to make that helmet a reality? night vision,com, and a gas mask all in one package
De-faging fans are a bad idea - that air eventually blows inside the helmet, gets into your eyes and after a while causes irritation, followed by tears.
Plus, I don't think any amount of airblow will help in really humid conditions.
Antifog spray is the best solution so far.
>held in place by magnets
> inside looks like a quick garage-made mock-up
> fans & electronics look like made by a kid with a soldering iron (and probably ware)
> lenses look thin as fuck, what protection level do they offer
> impossible to aim with
> fucking ugly
> names it "helmet" but it's actually a mask
Fuck that airshit shit.

Im kinda liking the mando look. If your going to ruin cheek weld might as well do it in style.
This armor built functional plus the ten minute turbine jetpack gives me the strangest feels. Not much into cosplay but when its real that's different.
Just have to wait until they come out with assecorie scopes that link up to the lenses of your helmet to create an aiming assisted HUD. If only google glasses didn't get shut down so quickly. That shit is right around the corner.
Oldschool tanker faceshield is cool. Something about a chainmail combat beard.
Depends, I'm assuming the NCR Ranger helmets use the camera setup on the right side for the actual feed which then gets projected into the eyes like an HUD, in contrast to our current tech which works more like a flip up scope. So the most difficult bit would be making all the circuitry and wiring for the eyes fit, the gas mask would be pretty simple.
>tfw you will never get to fight the WPD whilst wearing a suit and ballistic mask
If PAYDAY 2 did one thing right, it was mask customization.
Thats a badass hat.
Ima get one on Amazon. Ditch the fedora and wear it every time I ride the short bus.
>dumb RNG system to get colors, templates, materials and masks
cant edit or move any of the templates where you want them over the mask because god forbid they actually look good on one another
the only good masks people made were solid materials, not using a template or color
payday 2 sucked, you suck
Wish I had it, but it's where someone thought that since windshields absorb heat and are kinda bulletproof, he mentions that he now want to build a suit of one to avoid FLIR during the goverment happening.
>walk on stairs
>either trip or bend over and look down the whole time
Throughout history the largest problem with helmets is not being able to see your feet and body... not having a design that allows your eyes to see with as much coverage as if you weren't wearing a helmet.
>ith airthit u guise but i mead it real
>thif if booletpruff
>ith tho tactuhcl
>it rilly workth
a "bulletproof" helmet with a shitload of crevices, grooves and weak points, homemade, and mickey mouse lenses. How infuriating.
>1lb or less
>HUD with map/rangefinder/ammo count/zoom/360 view
Give me this, and helmets will be a thing, otherwise any of this on its own and >1lb and attached to your head is a disadvantage
With the panels held on with magnets it would break off deflecting the bullet and most of the force. At first I loled at the detachable ballistic plates then I saw they are slabs of kevlar and rubber and thought about it. Kinda clever.
fuck you commies, I hope your little fucking state sinks into the pacific.
Uh, it's working just fine, I can see you.

Why are you two using outdated helmet models-?
"Enclave"? "NCR"? Oh, fuck, I'm in the wrong thread.
I've actually built a working replica, night vision and hud included.
I'm using a small microprocessor to overlay gps coords, radiation in rems, and battery level onto the video feed.
The display is a set of cheap fpv racing glasses.
Looks like its just for show and not for use.
