The Injured Personnel Carrier (IPC) Back-to-Back Carry!

December 22, 2014

MARSOC Marines were the first to figure out that if a casualty is not badly injured but cannot walk, he can be carried on an IPC backwards! Seen here, demonstrated by Israeli Naval Commandos, the casualty is literally strapped back-to-back and can be carried by just one operator while both of them retain both hands free to operate their weapons. This is particularly  important to special operations teams who travel in small numbers and the fewer people needed to evacuate a wounded operator the better. As danger is usually still inherent, the more rifles left in the fight, the safer the team will be.

 

Weighing in at just 0.7lbs.and 10" in length, the IPC has become a must-have additional rescue device that is carried as well as traditional rescue gear to be able to raise wounded people off the floor more easily and be able to evacuate them with minimal personnel. See the regular way of using the IPC here:

How to correctly size an Ops Core Helmet Cover

July 04, 2017

Sizing a military helmet remotely can be difficult but sizing an Ops Core helmet can be even more tricky and confusing for several reasons.

Firstly, the sizing system for Ops Core ballistic helmets is not the same as the sizing for Ops Core bump helmets so you can't use a polymer helmet cover on a bump helmet or vice versa.
Secondly, Ops Core recently changed their sizing system, causing a lot of confusion. In addition, size jumps are not uniform and less common models like the mid-cut Ops Core Sentry or the new Ballistic LE are based on different geometry and will not fit regular FAST ballistic helmet covers. Confused? We're not surprised :)
