The British Ministry of Defence has eliminated missiles and other projectile weapons in favor of a more open, glass covered cockpit offensive. Why? Their new tactic is to fly as close to enemy aircraft as possible while wearing this prototype helmet to make the opposition shit themselves to death. Victims won't be reincarnated as anything good either, but that's just a side effect. [BBC via TheDayTheyTriedToKillMe]
Looks very heavy. It'll have to shrink down. Combat missions can be long, that would become very difficult to hold up for hours. Also, g-forces would only make it worse. Not that standard helmets are light as a feather, but it's still an issue.
(seeing through the planes fuselage would be awesome!!!)
