Which country has the most bulletproof helmet for their soldiers?
This is going to be just arguing with semantics but I feel like we should try going deeper at what bulletproof really means.
To many, bulletproof could mean something that’s impenetrable to bullets. If questioned if this is true, that answer’s yes and no.
The problem with the concept of “bulletproof” is that there’s a sh*tload of bullets of extreme variety. Hundreds of calibers, hundreds of projectiles, with millions of calculations to make on how each one affects certain materials. There’s just too many things to take into consideration and “bulletproof” is just the simplest way to convey that the material being labeled as such to some degree is actually “resistant”, that is the keyword, in reality, most of the bodyarmor being called bulletproof is actually just resistant, it won’t be able to stop hundreds of any round it’s designated to be bulletproof of, much less of any higher powered or specially designed armor peircing rounds.
However, as long as the material is actually resistant to even only a pistol round, it can, in fact, share the description of “bulletproof” the same as another different material that can withstand .50 cal rounds. Bulletproof is just too broad a term to be taken as is.
Let’s talk about the question.
What does the questioner mean?
>Did they mean to ask that which country supplies the most amount of bulletproof helmets to their soldiers?
>Or which country supplies the highest grade and quality of bulletproof helmets to their soldiers?
>Or which country supplies the most of the highest grade and quality of bulletproof helmets to their soldiers?
Cause depending which one they actually mean, the answers can be wildly different.
The first is easiest to answer. While any material can be bulletproof as long as it can withstand even pistol rounds, just search which country fields the most amount of soldiers, and look at their regular gears, if it has bulletproof helmets, then voila! The country with the most amount that fields bulletproof helmet to their soldiers iiiisssss:
China! This country has the most amount of soldiers, over 2M and i’m gonna have to presume that they give their soldiers at least, a level 1 bulletproof helmet.
Ok, if i’m being honest, it could really be other countries that are in active combat the most that takes this. China hasn’t really been into any conflict that justifies them to supply ALL or at least most of their soldiers with bulletproof helmets, they’re not in major conflict like the US with Afghanistan, though the US have been backing off now, Yemen with Saudi Arabia, Israel with Palestine. I highly doubt that China’s been actually wasting money to produce helmets and just have them dust in storage.
So my money’s on the US for being the country with the most major conflicts ever since the fielding of bulletproof helmet as early as the invasion of Panama in 1975. Followed by Russia, Israel or India or Pakistan, and maybe then, China.
The other 2 possible questions I’m not even gonna bother researching for, too many things to look for and I’m not that bored nor free.
