In the 2000s, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation needed more modern developments in the field of equipment. The military also needed new, lighter and more comfortable helmets. So, in 2006 helmets 6b26, 6b27 and 6b28 (adapted for various tasks) were put into service.
6b27 helmet was designed as a combined-arms assault helmet. This helmet in its construction had many similarities with Western models, which made it more convenient and ergonomic compared to its predecessors. Also, this helmet was made from lighter aramid fibers instead of steel or titanium. This replica by Gear Craft exactly repeats the look and design of the helmet, DOES NOT have any bulletproof qualities.
6b27 is used in a large number of units of the Russian army, as well as in ODKB, has a large area of protection and a convenient suspension system.
