Next-generation helmets keep Defenders lethal, ready
Airman Alex Orquiza, front, and Senior Airman Craig Smith, both 71st Security Forces Squadron personnel, wear the next generation of ballistic helmets during a door breaching exercise at Vance Air Force Base, Okla., Sept. 15, 2020. The Air Force Security Forces Center is delivering the helmets to security forces units as part of its effort to standardize and modernize Defender equipment across the Air Force. The new helmets are lighter, cooler, have better padding and come with a built-in railing to fit accessories, such as night vision goggles and tactical communication equipment.
