Dirty Army helmet is an headgear-type item in Fallout 4.

Background

Main article: Combat armor

Modelled after the human silhouette and designed to provide balanced protection that does not limit mobility on the battlefield, combat armors are a diverse family of personal body armor of varying degrees of sophistication, from the earliest iterations of the armor developed by the United States Army[1] to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.[2]

The first modern type of combat armor developed by the United States Army[1] to the cutting-edge riot gears that came into use prior to the Great War.[3] consisted of individual armored plates manufactured from synthetic fibers[4] attached to standard load-carrying equipment of the infantryman. The individual components included a combat helmet issued with matching goggles in hazardous environs, front and back ballistic plates, and a pair of axillary protectors. Additional forearm protectors were issued to frontline troops.[5] The lower body was protected by a pair of thigh plates, worn together with a groin and kidney protector. The shins, knees, and feet were covered by frontal plates worn over standard combat boots.[6]

The armor was typically worn in conjunction with standard Army fatigues[7] or specialized uniforms designed for it, with various solid color camouflage patterns (including Arctic white, coyote brown, and olive drab). Rank indicators were typically painted on the axillary protectors,[8] with the Army insignia and identification numbers printed on the back plate.[9][6]

Characteristics

Identical in all respects to the army helmet except it has a dirtier appearance.
