Revision Military announced today it has been selected to supply UK troops with its Batlskin Cobra Plus helmet system.
The custom-designed head protection solution “offers an ultra-lightweight helmet that exceeds the UK’s stringent ballistic and impact requirements” and features the Modular Suspension System – a fully adjustable liner and retention system designed to maximize comfort and stability during long periods of wear, according to Sept. 14 press release.
“Revision is extremely pleased to have been selected to supply this proprietary head protection system for UK soldiers” said Jonathan Blanshay, CEO, Revision Military. “We are confident it offers the best in comfort, protection, durability and flexibility for the mission at hand whether on the battlefield or during peace-keeping assignments.”
The Cobra Plus system can be coupled with Revision’s Modular Protective Attachment System, or MPAS, for full face protection. The MPAS consists of a ballistic Mandible Guard for lower face and jaw protection as well as an optically correct Visor that can be completely closed and sealed for full protection, vented for additional air flow, or put into an upright locked position when not required.
Cobra Plus is also equipped with an integrated front mount and mini rail system to attach NVG’s and accessories such as flashlights or cameras.
Revision supplies Advanced Combat Helmets to the U.S. military and has manufactured over 1.3 million helmets in its Newport, Vermont facility, primarily for U.S. troops.
Revision has recently supplied approximately 8,000 similar helmets and face protection systems to Denmark; those have been put through the rigors of the Afghanistan theater and have been extremely well received by the Danish Forces, according to Revision.
In addition, the Revision Sawfly Spectacle and WolfSpider Goggle Systems will be provided for use when full-face coverage is not required. The first deliveries of Cobra Plus head protection systems are planned for quick shipment with 9,000 full systems scheduled for fall 2015.
