Hi, how effective protect the PASGT or ACH the soldier against shots by snipers , especially against AK-47 (7.62x39mm) and the SVD (7.62 x 54 mm R), which are primarily used in Iraq I guess. I ve read that the PASGT was able to stop a bullet of an AK-47 at a range of just 25m, is this possible at all. The ACH is made of a new type of Kevlar to provide improved ballistic and impact protection. Tests show it will withstand a hit from a 9mm round at close range, a test the previous helmets would fail. Some have even stopped IED fragments. Is it impossible for the ACH with its so called more advanced type of Kevlar increased protection to stop tha SVD´s bullets? (??A-Level III??)
