US Army is getting a new combat helmet!

via Military Times.
U.S. Army equipment officials will soon begin fielding a new combat helmet designed to give soldiers 100 percent greater protection against head trauma injuries on the battlefield.

This month, soldiers from the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, will receive the Army's new Integrated Head Protection System, or IHPS, which will replace the Enhanced Combat Helmet in close-combat units.

"Our next-generation helmet -- the [Integrated] Head Protection System -- it has a 100 percent greater blunt impact protection over the ... Enhanced Combat Helmet," Lt. Col. Ginger Whitehead, product manager for Soldier Protective Equipment, said recently.

First I hope the USMC piggy backs off this Army program with a quickness.  Second I'll take a for display, and one for play!
