I've always wanted to see a full face helmet,but something along the lines of motocross helmets. The individual comms can be place in the helmet itself,but this might become to hot inside to become practical.Nice find though.

Isnt shooting in the head on a moving target kind of hard? Doesnt everyone shoot in the heart b/c its easier? Face plates wouldnt make a whole lot of a difference besides shielding from gernade fragments I think. The US's 2020 plan involves faceplates with a screen in them that will tell you your health and will give a GPS miniscreen. Also they are thinking about putting medicine patches on the suites so when you get hurt the computer will automatically apply the correct medicine needed. And all of their 2020 soldiers will be able to cloak. And will have far more sophisticated weapons than modern ones. Like rail gun tanks and lasers powered by chemicles. Or even better is battery operated lasers. But all of that comes in not so distant future but it is actully pretty far away. Let us hope that the world doesnt end and the bible is fake so we can prosper for all time of this universe.

By the way, I already mentioned that you could pull it back if you wanted to aim your weapon or if it got stuffy.
