What? It’s blast shield in the event of ejection, not much in the way of crash protection.

I guess they see pretty much the same kind of information they have on the HUD. If I´m not wrong the F-35 doesn´t have a HUD because all flight and tactical information are displayed on the helmet visor, right in front of the pilot´s eye. With the advantage that he/she can turn the head to look out and still have all the tactical information available to see.

Just did a google search for joint helmet mounted cueing system and videos. Basically repeating what would be on a HUD, with additional capabilities. Pretty sweet.

If they're looking in the mirror with it on...a big swollen head full of ego!
