Heads up [DSEI15, D4]

18 September 2015

As part of the Virtus programme, a new personal protection and load carriage system for the UK, Revision Military of Canada (Stand S9-430) is supplying its custom-designed head protection solution, the Batlskin Cobra Plus.

‘‘We are confident it offers the best in comfort, protection, durability and flexibility for the mission at hand, whether on the battlefield or during peacekeeping assignments,’’ said Jonathan Blanshay, chief executive.

The Batlskin Cobra Plus is an ultra-lightweight helmet that exceeds the UK’s stringent ballistic and impact requirements, according to Revision. It can be coupled with the patented modular protective attachment system (MPAS) for full-face protection.

When full-face protection is not required, Revision will provide Sawfly Spectacle and WolfSpider Goggle systems.

Fitted with a modular adjustable liner and suspension system, the helmet carries an integrated front mount and mini rail system to attach night-vision goggles and accessories such as flashlights and cameras.

First deliveries of 9,000 Cobra Plus head protection systems are planned for later this year.

Revision has recently supplied 8,000 similar helmets and face protection systems to Denmark.
