What types of Bulletproof Helmet?
Helmets are one of the oldest types of body armor, dating back to the 23rd century BC, when they were worn in warfare and combat. Hundreds of innovations and redesigns have evolved into today's ballistic helmets as they are one of the most important personal protective equipment available and are used by law enforcement, militaries and even civilians around the world.
Military helmets can be roughly divided into the following categories:
1. Infantry helmet:
Primarily ballistic helmets, also known as ballistic helmets or tactical helmets, are primarily used to protect the wearer's head from bullets, blunt strikes, shrapnel, and other threats.

What are the common types of bulletproof helmets?
Currently, the most common ballistic helmets in the military include the Fast High Cut Helmet, the Personnel Armor System for Ground Forces PASGT Helmet and the Modular Integrated Communications MICH Helmet. There is also a more common Team Wendy bulletproof helmet on the market.
The PASGT is the oldest tactical helmet design, used by the U.S. military from 1983 to the mid-2000s.
The MICH helmet is designed to be a lighter, more comfortable ballistic helmet. Rails have also been added for accessories like NVG mounts, eliminating the need for additional drilling of the helmet.
The most distinctive feature of the FAST helmet is the high cut edge, a specially designed additional feature, a communication headset that can be connected with a rail adapter.
