Rhey’nou Ballistic Helmet

The Rhey’nou Ballistic Helmet is a modular piece of cranial protection designed and developed by the Shukara Volunteer Navy in EE00v41) to be used by the Neshaten armed forces.

Design

The Rhey’nou is simple yet effective, the base model is little more than a helmet-shaped slab of Nasu'ase with moisture-wicking padding on the inside to absorb impacts, the sections where a more human-like pair of ears usually sit contain the communications equipment and micro fusion power source – comms feeding up to the top of the helmet with a pair of basic holographic projectors on either side of the face that can provide a heads up display. Pivoting mounts for a variety of faceplates sit on either temple and a chin strap runs along the bottom of the helmet to secure it on.

Appearance

The Rhey’nou is a rather basic metal helmet, with channels in the top for the fox-like ears possessed by Neshaten’s people – it comes in a wide variety of colors and camouflage patterns to suit the individual’s needs.

Usage

The Rhey’nou is worn just like any helmet, pulled down over the head and then secured with the chin-strap, the HUD and communications systems are turned on/off via a button located on the underside at the very back of the helmet – it has appropriate ports to be hooked up to radios and such.

Systems

The Communications capabilities include satellite (if available), peer to peer relay and standard radio – all of which can be augmented by plugging additional devices to the helmet, default the helmet contains a HUD but no vision enhancement modes, these come in the form of various faceplates and attachments for the helmet.
