Technical Description:
A titanium helmet with a visor, the helmet is visually similar to a motorcycle helmet. The helmet's visor is secured by the use of sheet metal hooks that interface with pegs on the visor itself. the helmet can be equipped with a radio set whose control unit is attached on the rear of the helmet via use of brackets.

History:
the Altyn was a copy of the swiss TIG Psh-77. Early versions of the Altyn consisted of a simple titanium shell with a head harness however it was found that the shell had a tendency to spall or shatter when struck. to combat this a aramid fiber backer was added, this not only stopped the spalling fragments but also provided added protection, as a round passing through the shell would fragment and the backer would prevent these fragments from injuring the wearer.
