Britain's Ministry of Defence shows off a prototype helmet for pilots flying the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.

It's much lighter than it looks. I've worn the prototype and it didn't feel awkward or uncomfortable at all. I expected it to feel top heavy, but it did not.

 

It's the only helmet I've worn, so I can't compare it to anything current.

:lol:

Do they come in different "eye" colours? :patsak:

 

Would you go dating one, if the eyes were blue? :lol::rofl:

 

I think its time for the world to move on to unmaned fighters, or alse who knows what's gonna come out next. :biggrin:

Nah... just thought of an action movie with green-eyed good guys, red-eyed bad guys and some Han-Solo-type yellow-eyed guy who switches to green in the last minute. :biggrin:

Now why is it that I got the feeling someone's going to sooner or later add horns to those stubbs? :blink:

 

And then paint it red and name it something unholy...

I have been looking at this picture for days now, trying to get accustomed to it, but I can't. I am freaked out by it. Eyes are the windows into the soul for me, and to see eyes like that kinda gives me the heby jebies. My wife once got these dark green contact lenses, I couldn't look at her. That just freaked me out too much. So add this helmet to my list of fears, right below the easter bunny and just above clowns. Freaky.

If a pilot like that ejects at night and you walk into him with his helmet still on I bet your pants are full of crap :blink:

LOL!
