The advanced combat helmet will replace the current combat helmet for the U.S. army and is currently being fielded to all troops leaving for OIF or OEF. It is part of the RFI gear all soliders receive.

If you are talking about the old US Kevlar vs the new one you are dead wrong. Right now I have both since I was just issued the new MITCH helmet. I just came out of the field and I have nothing bad to say about the new helmet.

The combat helmet of the Italian Armed Forces:



This is a Bersagliere. The only other soldiers with feathers on their helmets are the Alpini (a single blue feather).

I think they're from the time when soldiers wore blue and red uniforms and didn't care about camouflage much. Not sure if they're meant to represent anything other than a means to identify Bersaglieri.

That would make sense, bit like the bearskins worn by the guards, tho they dont wear them into battle anymore.
Would be amused seeing a soldier in full combat uniform yet with a bearskin on! would be fatal
