The Advanced Modular Helmet is a ballistic-resistant helmet used by the Livonian Defense Force in ArmA 3. It was added with the release of the Contact DLC.

Overview

This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Contact expansion pack.


Standard-issue combat helmet of the Livonian Defense Force, the Advanced Modular Helmet combines a canvas cover with a hardened aramid shell. The regular model with only an olive-coloured canvas cover weighs a "mass" of 30 units, while the sub-variant fitted with a headset weighs 35 "mass" instead.

Essentially the LDF's equivalent of the Combat Helmet worn by their American allies, the Advanced Modular Helmet is virtually identical in all aspects save for appearance. Both Advanced Modular Helmet variants are rated at Level II protection standards, and retain a base armour value of 6.

As a result, its protective qualities are quite mediocre and won't stop much more than a single 6.5 mm bullet at non-point blank ranges. It does not protect against 7.62 mm rounds unless their velocity has dropped to extremely low levels.

Weighing a "mass" of 50 units, the Chops variant is fitted with two extended cheek plates which cover most of the wearer's face.

This model's sole advantage stems exclusively from the two plates, which offer a minute amount of damage resistance to small explosions. Meanwhile, the armour value of the base helmet has been increased from 6 to 7, further enhancing the protective qualities of the helmet.

However, the chops are not intended to provide cover against ballistic projectiles as their meagre base armour value (3) is even less than that of NATO's Light Combat Helmet. At most, the wearer could potentially survive a hit from a 9 mm round at distances of beyond 400 metres; at point blank ranges, the chops offer little more cover than a paper hat.

Ear Protectors

Fitted with ballistic guards on both sides of the helmet, this variant provides increased surface coverage of the wearer's head.

The armour value of the helmet itself has also been increased from 6 to 7; coming at a cost of a mere 10 extra "mass" units (totalling to 40).

However, the Ear Protectors still do little to increase the wearer's survivability to gunfire - in all other aspects, there is not much of an improvement over the baseline Advanced Modular Helmet.

Camouflage

  • Geometric: Forest green coloured rails and canvas cover with woodland-themed camouflage applied intended to mimic the LDF's Geometric pattern.
  • Olive: Pale green canvas cover with forest green-coloured rails.

Trivia

  • Advanced Modular Helmets appear to be modelled after "HP-05" ballistic helmets designed by MASKPOL S.A., a protective gear manufacturer based in Poland.
  • It is misleadingly described as a Level III-rated helmet. In practice, its protection standards and base armour value make it no better than a Level II-rated helmet (for both regular and modified variants).
