Just because I dunno what to do with myself today:

I was doing some image searches looking for armor stuff I hadn't seen before, and came across this; the helmet from the late 80's TV show Airwolf... anyhow I thought it looked familiar. Kinda like an ODST/Spartan mix... pretty neat .







Theres even a promotional video: Retractable visor, and light up targeting system. Look!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C6SzpPsGIFI

Wierdness!

:shock:

Found another... yeah thats right, I'm that bored!

This one is from a short-lived TV show called 'Space: Above and Beyond' It ran for two seasons (1995-1996) on The Fox network, and the similarities don't stop at appearances.

The show, set in the years 2063–2064, focuses on a group of United States Marines, members of the United States Marine Corps Space Aviator Cavalry, 58th Squadron, or the "Wildcards". They are based on the space carrier USS Saratoga, and act as infantry and also pilot the SA-43 Endo/Exo-Atmospheric Attack Jet (Hammerhead) fighter spaceplane. With a budget of approximately 1.5–2 million USD per episode, it was the most expensive science fiction television show at the time of its production.

Interesting.... well, heres the helmet:

Wonder if this is pre- or post-Halo?

The Mk VI helmet and even the new close quarters helmet bear a striking resemblence to the Universal Century Gundam OAV's GM Type-D and Type-F Mobile suits from the 90's. The visor on the MCs helm is almost identical to the Type-D's.

Was also noticing the similarities between the CQB, these helmets and another armor...

I though it looks a little like the Shi Kai Wang concept armor:
