About the original LShZ 1+helmet
The LShZ 1+ helmet is a serious update of ArmoCom’s previous creation, known as LShZ-2DT. This helmet has been used for more than 10 years all over Russia by their special units of the Federal Security Service (FSB). It’s now being replaced with the Lshz 1+ among the FSB units that were in need of a redesigned helmet. It was created in 2012 especially for the Russian special forces.
As the name “LSHZ 1+” clearly indicates, this helmet has the protection class 1+ according to Russian standards, which is in principle equivalent to the protection standard IIIA for NIJ (Western classification of armor protection). The current Russian requirements for ballistic protection helmets for FSB special forces units can be described in several points :
- The presence of a mounting for night vision goggles devices
- The possibility of wearing a helmet with active headphones
- The presence of side rails for the attachment of additional equipment (cameras, lamps, lasers, etc.)
- A practical attachment system
- The possibility to wear it for a fairly long period of time without any discomfort
The LSHZ 1+ is in fact an adaptation of the OPS-Core. It’s made in two colors : Olive for the MVD (Ministry of Defense) and black for the FSB. It is an officially certified model in Russia with an official protection class accompanied by a manufacturer’s warranty. It is also important to specify that this helmet line is issued by the State to the FSB staff. Equipped with Lshz 1+, these units have been using it since about 2013.
