New ballistic helmets arrive in Czech Republic

2nd September 2020 - 14:35 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Army of the Czech Republic is receiving the first batch of ballistic protection helmets from domestic company Argun.

A total of 11,603 helmets are being delivered by 3 September, according to a statement from the Czech MoD.

The first troops to receive the new helmets are from the 7th Mechanized Brigade, which is serving in the NATO Response Force this year. All helmets should be distributed to units by the end of this year.

In November 2019, the MoD signed a framework agreement with the Czech company Argun to supply the armed forces with ballistic protective helmets.

This CZK435 million deal included the acquisition of about 31,000 helmets, to be handed over by the end of 2021 in two further batches.

The Czech army already uses universal VOBU I ballistic protective vests from Argun.
