GRAU index 6B47 Kevlar helmet with the index 6B47.
The occupant’s “Vortex” helmet with the region designation “38”. This occupant came from the Irkutsk region, which is part of the Siberian Federal District. He came 6,000 kilometers in search of adventure and left his helmet in Ukraine… In Slavic mythology, “vortex” is an unclean and dangerous wind for humans, created by unclean forces and is a manifestation of these unclean forces. We don’t know what the occupant with the nickname “Vortex” had in mind, but our soldiers know what to do with manifestations of unclean Putin’s power in Ukraine.
The 6B47 helmet is the only military armored helmet of the Russian army. It is part of the “Warrior” equipment. Developed by the Armacom center since 2011. Occupants claim that this helmet is 30-40% better than Native American analogs. And one of the leaders of the enterprise that produces aramid fibers for this helmet stated that in 2015, DuPont testing center experts recognized this helmet as the best in the world. Although there is no such information on the DuPont website. It is lightweight, with mounts for lighting devices.
These helmets can often be seen on the heads of occupants. There is a lot of information on the internet about these helmets and tests of their capabilities.
