Rampart Range Day – MTEK Weapon Systems

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

  
MTEK Weapon Systems has been working on helmet technology for a little over two years but now they’ve cracked the code on a one-piece undercut helmet.  Their Future Lightweight UnderCut System or FLUX is available in a vented and nonvented carbon bump as well as a ballistic helmet.

  
This ballistic model’s shell 1.1 lbs with a full helmet is about 1.9 lbs with full suspension, shroud and rails. In addition to featuring an undercut back, it is less than .25″ thick yet meets the ACH 17 grain v50 standard. Additionally, the shell has met NIJ level IIIA in testing but has not yet been certified while MTEK awaits final production suspension parts from the vendor.  You may notice the rail retainers which are adhered to the FLUX shell. This means that no holes are drilled in the shell to mount accessories.  In addition to the MTEK rails, the helmet will comes complete with Wilcox shroud.

Princeton Tec has developed a solution for their lights which helps to alleviate “rail estate” issues on ballistic helmets such as those from Team Wendy, Ops-Core, and Crye. The Princeton Tec Helmet Mount is a simple-yet-effective nylon piece which is placed behind the helmet rail, and allows users to relocate their lights above the rail, freeing up space for other accessories.

Monday, May 11th, 2015

The Australian Army tecently issued over 4,000 Crye Precision AirFrames to Tier 2 combatants in 1 Brigade. That alone is pretty big news.

The tender for the remainder of the helmets (approximately 14,000 for both Tier 2 & 3) is being evaluated at the moment.
