An Indian Army Major, who had earlier developed a bulletproof jacket against a sniper bullet, has now developed a world’s first bulletproof helmet against Ak-47 bullet. The Major claims that the helmet he has developed can stop an AK-47 bullet round from a distance of 10 meters.
“The ballistic helmet has been developed under project Abhedya by Major Anoop Mishra who has also developed a full-body protection bulletproof jacket which can withstand even sniper rifles,” Army officials told ANI.
The Major is a student of the Indian Army’s College of Military Engineering and as per Livemint has got into the helmet development after he received gunshots on his bulletproof jacket.
The reports add that besides bulletproof guards, the Indian Army’s College of Military Engineering has also developed the world’s cheapest gunshot locater. The locater is capable of locating the exact location of the bullet from a distance of 400 meters which will help to locate and neutralise terrorists faster.
For facts, the College of Military Engineering (CME) at Pune is a premier tactical & Technical training institution that is the alma mater of the Corps of Engineers. Students at CME are trained in Combat Engineering, CBRN Protection, Works Services and GIS matters to the personnel of All Arms & Services.
