|Although the majority of protection is provided by the Heavy Battle Armour, the Heavy Battle Helmet offers the wearer generous benefits on its own and both are considerably more effective when worn together. The helmet, like the armour, is constructed using a similar design of multi-layered high strength durasteel fused with premium grade quantum to give the helmet a tough outer shell. This level of protection, while beneficial, substantially increases the weight the wearer must bear.|
The helmet features an integrated air filtration system which protects the wearer from most chemical and gas weapons found on the battlefield. The wearer also benefits from a multi-sensor Helmet Mounted Display (HMD) built into the visor. This HMD allows the user to switch between various information displays using simple voice commands giving the user better situations awareness on the battlefield. A sophisticated target identification system also helps identify and choose targets effectively during the chaos of combat.
