Galea Photos

In March we published a story about the Dutch military’s Galea helmet program. At a recent military show in the Netherlands they displayed this prototype. The program is still on track for a 2011 fielding.



On another note, the Dutch military also displayed Ops-Core helmets at this show and they most certainly would fulfill most requirements for a modular helmet system although the cost is still a bit prohibitive for some customers. However, Ops-Core recently revealed to us that they have developed an Aramid shell for the Ballistic FAST helmet which is much lower cost yet only raises the weight to that of a MICH.
