New Ukrainian Army Helmet Reminds an Imperial Trooper Helmet

The new Ukrainian army mask was presented to public. The model was named "Cyborg", and some bloggers around have been finding a similarity between this new mask and imperial troopers mask out of the movie Star Wars. However despite
the similarities the main purpose of the unit is to protect face and neck of a soldier from grenades fragments. It also can withstand a direct hand gun shot and a rifle shot of up to 20 caliber. More photos inside:
