BAE Systems Receives $28 Million Order to Produce U.S. Marine Corps Lightweight Helmets
Суть: ЛИНЕЙКА БУДЕТ НОСИТЬ ЛВХ, ХУЙ ВАМ А НЕ МИТЧ ДЕВЧОНКИ!
lightweight design, first produced by the company in 2012, represents
the latest model in Marine Corps helmets since the Personnel Armor
System Ground Troops helmet was replaced in 2003.
lightweight helmet is a sophisticated design engineered to meet the
Corps’ protection requirements for bullets and fragmentation,” said Eric
Gavelda, director of Warfighter Protection at BAE Systems Protection
Systems. "This order allows us to continue production well into 2014.”
lightweight helmet is fully certified to meet rigorous standards for
ballistic, structural and non-ballistic impact testing set by the U.S.
Army’s Aberdeen Test Center. This new order is an option on an existing
contract issued to BAE Systems in 2010. The cumulative value awarded
thus far under the contract is approximately $56 million.
lightweight helmet is produced at the company’s Jessup, Pennsylvania
facility. The Jessup facility also produces the Army’s Advanced Combat
Helmets and Combat Vehicle Crewman Helmets. Since 1986, more than
800,000 of BAE Systems’ helmets have been fielded to U.S. Marines and
BAE Systems Protection Systems is a leading provider of
military protective and load carrying equipment in the United States,
producing a significant portion of the nation’s body armor, tactical
vests, combat helmets and load carrying systems. The company is focused
on the design, development and production of leading edge survivability
products. Its integration of advanced materials into manufacturing,
rigorous product testing and field trials support BAE Systems’ focus on
