Some screen grabs from a PLAN promo video showing naval special forces in the new woodland camouflage in a jungle/forest setting. Note the tactical lights mounted on the helmets, which I don't recall seeing before in such detail.

Here is a Bilibili link to the original video

@by78 there are a few more scenes in the original video showing the new LMG and the new weapons from other angles, are you able to screen cap some of those?

What is the point of wearing FAST helmets if you are not going to wear tactical headsets. You sacrifice some level of protection in order to better integrate comtacs.

I am starting to see more non special forces PLA soldiers wear them. Aesthetically, it does not look good wearing them without headsets.

They do wear them, the problem is the slow distribution of them. It's the reason why we've been seeing so much mix match of gears and weapons over the last 2 years.

These guys are wearing tactical headsets (some are anyway), they just happen to be in-ear ones, our guys have similar, and let me tell you if you've ever experienced wearing over ear cans in hot humid weather, you'd appreciate the change.:oops:

Don't in-ear work with regular helmet that partly covers the ear?

Have you worn them all day?

1. It saves battery on your ear pros
2. Two gel pads pressed up on the side of your head in the jungle get pretty hot after a while.
3. You only really wear your Peltors when you are expecting contact.
