ULBRICHTS Protection presents the first “stand alone” helmet capable of stopping Kalashnikov iron-core ammunition

ULBRICHTS achieves the breakthrough, opening up a new era in ballistic protective helmets with real protection against rifle: ULBRICHTS Protection presents its new RIFLE helmet family.

The new VPAM 6 rifle helmet protects ‘stand alone’ on the surface without additional protective shields (FORTIS) against dangerous threats (7.62×39 MSC).

The helmet will be available world-wide from 2022 and can be viewed at the ULBRICHTS Protection stand at the Milipol (stand: 5J 064).

This groundbreaking development offers a new level of protection and is based on the tireless search for a technical solution capable of halting both the extremely difficult-to-stop iron core ammunition 7.62×39 MSC and the NATO caliber 7.62×51 NATO (M80) (NIJ III) at full speed.

TRUE PROTECTION = STOP AND SURVIVABLE RESIDUAL ENERGY VALUES <25 JOULES

Real protection can be ensured only if it not only stops projectiles, but also prevents strong backface deformation and thus reduces residual energy to less than the lethal 25 joules.

NEW THREATS REQUIRE NEW MEASURES

Statistics from the last few years show that people running amok and engaging in terror and violence against the executive are increasingly using firearms and long weapons such as the Kalashnikov and AR15 derivatives.

ULBRICHTS Protection has set itself the task of providing special task forces, patrol officers and the first responders who are the quickest to arrive at the scene the best possible protection against threats from short and long guns.
