Réparation rapide du casque aéroporté


Grand Rouge dit :

Écoutez Bouton d'Or ! J'ai une question pour vous...

Alors, PRENEZ-EN CINQ !

Après toutes ces discussions sur la modification compliquée de l'équipement aéroporté, je voulais voir si quelqu'un avait déjà repéré l'une des solutions les plus simples et les plus rapides utilisées par les parachutistes pour empêcher leur casque et leur doublure de se séparer lors d'un saut ?

Je suppose que Bueller,

En laissant la sangle attachée à la doublure, les soldats étendraient complètement la mentonnière en cuir et l'enrouleraient autour du corps du casque.

Souviens-toi......

    I went through Airborne School at Fort Benning in 1985. The requirement then was to use 100mph tape to secure both the front and back of the helmet line and the helmet – and it had to be done neatly! The only students to get the Kevlar helmet at the time were those with large heads. One of my classmates completed all 5 jumps with one hand on his reserve rip cord grip and one on top of his head to keep his brain bucket from flying off!

    I graduated from airborne school in April 1971. At that time it was SOP to run the steel pot chinstraps through the helmet liner’s chip strap yokes. It never seems to have been done in WWII, based on pictures, but I don’t know when the Airborne Board made this a safety requirement. One thing; this technique uses up a lot of the strap by diverting it this way. If you’ve got a big head, stuffed into the helmet with the “brain blotter”, plus a shortened chin strap, it was anything but comfortable. Life sucked from the JMPI to the time you could rip the helmet off your head after you got off the DZ (you have to keep your helmet on while on the DZ—things are dropping from the sky…).

    In the eighties, late eighties for me, just before the PASGT was wide spread issued. We were trained to run the steel pot chinstraps thru the jump liners chinstrap yolks.
