Ballistic Test: Italian SEPT2 Kevlar Army Helmet



hello youtubers welcome back to another helmet ballistic test today I've got one that's very uncommon in the United States and just decided to test one just for shits and giggles and we'll see how this performs and stacks up to the other Kevlar helmets are modern helmets we've tested like the mark six the pads get and polish wz 93 and 2000 helmets so lately has been using these for a while now they're kind of like a refined version of the pass get got a nice little visor in the front the profile is pretty small it doesn't have the ears that stick out way far league on a pass guitar at ACH really comfortable liner system and everything but what really matters is what stop small rounds at close distances I'm expecting this to because it's a pretty cool helmet they're pretty pricey but hopefully after this video we'll see why they're worth it so yeah before you get started if you guys can now like this video and then subscribe to my channel to be awesome because there's a lot of cool videos like this make sure you check out the other ballistic test videos on the playlist and yeah hopefully hopefully this one performs well like the british mark 6 didn't perform that well but it was an older one and whatever so there might be some more factors I'm just trying to justify it really made me upset anyways opposed wz 2000 and both the pass get and lessons like shot so the pads go down to WG 2000 did very well hopefully this will be in that same category because I'm pretty sure as a 2017 this was the current issue Kevlar helmet in the Italian military and there's a lot of Italians that are in NATO operations and stuff so hopefully this will kind of show them what their helmet will actually protect against we're going to be using calibers from 9 millimeter to 45 7.62 by 2 5 30 caliber carbine 5 5 6 5 4 5 and eventually 308 we're going to see if it'll do that maybe shoot into distance of about 10 to 15 yards and we'll see how this does now we'll get to the video thanks phone's going to be 9 by 19 millimeter ah 10 15 granted the Jericho 941 at about 5 yards so all right right on there now let's take this off and see what it did on the inside oh my god it went right through what hope wait a second was that the first one that I shot maybe was a little low a shot through the head no it certainly wasn't her wait let me figure this out for a second guys I think it just went right through yeah it did so a 9-millimeter one right through this one which is interesting because you'd think that they'd protect a little bit more this is a really rigid helmet though the Polish one's a little bit more flexible maybe that has something to do with it oh yeah that's still warm so that's a 9-millimeter that's sleepy just hit the back and splash but that's still not good that penetrated with a 9-millimeter all right we'll try a 45 ACP on this now yeah it's a 45 ACP for 30 grains oh no I'm back right okay pop them in a little liner screws out see if it went through nope it stopped that one which is really nice okay so it stopped 2:45 but it took the screw out of the liner which is no big deal so forty-fives really slow around now so it doesn't really surprise me alright I'll move on to the really big test the 7.62 by 25 tool krub all right the 760 talked a lot of Armenians no well don't know for sure yet no way yeah so there's the impact it cut right through if you can see that right there and lodged in the other side which is why it's got this for was back here so it went through your head but it'll save your buddies alright now we're going for the rifle rounds got the 30 caliber carbine hundred and ten grand Full Metal Jacket all right you got the five five six out of the ar-15 same thing it twenty four five millimeter is about a case NT for again went right through it and then just for kind of shits and giggles we're going to use a 308 out of the 1916 Spanish Mauser cost us the dad religion wrap up the video so yeah you're looking at critical failures on every single round that this thing encountered so Italy you've got to step up your game man that's not a really good not really good helmet I've noticed that more rigid helmets are the ones that get defeated faster and by everything so maybe making it more flexible but this is what your Italian – helmet does against a bunch of different calibers so if you liked this video I'll give it a thumbs up and subscribe to my channel and check out the rest of the playlist everyone let's watch this videos in the past thanks you guys are awesome and I hope you enjoyed this video and yeah now you know what a selling our helmet hold up against nothing so we'll see you next time
