The Daily Mirror reports these special helmets, named after the Star Wars character because of how similar they look to Boba Fett's own headgear, are said to be bulletproof.
The helmet's strong plates can protect against fire, blasts, shrapnel, and any gunshot, including a shot from an AK47 or Magnum 44 round.It also projects maps on to its visor via a built-in GPS system, uses heat-seeking technology to help soldiers track down enemies, and is air conditioned to protect against heat and gases.
"The helmet, already being used by special forces, is much more versatile than just stopping bullets," a military source told the Daily Mirror. "It is fitted with the latest communications technology and will help the soldier see the enemy no matter what the circumstances.”
The gear was first used by both Navy SEALs and the Army Delta Force before SAS soldiers started trying them out as well.
