The F-35 helmet gives the pilot night-vision, microphone activated voice command, advanced heads-up display (HUD) for flight information that allows the pilot to ‘see through’ the plane.
With the new HUD, if you look down at the floor of the jet you can literally see the ground beneath you.
The helmet is an integral part of the F-35's advanced weapon system and that’s what accounts for most of its $400,000 price tag.
