An Indian Army Major who had designed an advanced bulletproof vest against sniper rounds has now developed a helmet that can protect the wearer from a 7.62×39mm bullet, commonly chambered in an AK-47. 

"The ballistic helmet has been developed under project Abhedya by Major Anoop Mishra, who has also developed a full-body protection bulletproof jacket which can withstand even sniper rifles," Army officials told news agency ANI

Mishra is part of the Indian Army's College of Military Engineering, who was inspired to design the helmet after he was saved by his bulletproof jacket when struck with a sniper round several years ago. 

"This jacket can withstand a sniper bullet from even 10 meters", Mishra said.

Army Chief General Bipin Rawat awarded Mishra the Army Design Bureau Excellence Award at the Army Technology Seminar for developing the helmet. 

Mishra's new helmet and advanced bulletproof jacket will give Indian troops on the Line of Control, a militarized area between India and Pakistan, added protection as skirmishes along the region continue to flourish
