Combat Helmets Have Moved Beyond Just Protection

Combat helmets have come a long way from their humble beginnings during World War I.
So just remember, boys and girls, when the bastards kick off our next civil war and you're policing up after the ambush, be sure and get their helmets. Even if you can't use the advanced communications built into them, you're denying the enemy an expensive, useful resource.

Everything old is new again. This reminds me of the helmets the German army developed during WWI, which at first could accommodate quite a number of accessories including what is now called 'applique armor.'

Ian at Forgotten Weapons recently demonstrated one of them here.
