The Taiwanese Military’s New Masks Are Scary as Hell

These are ballistic masks, designed to deflect gun shots. Which seem like a useful thing to have when out on the battlefield. But they also have the unintended consequence of being absolutely terrifying. Look at this dude. 

I don't want to go to war against him. Especially because these things will stop a .44 to the face. 

The masks are padded for shock absorption and are built to absorb close-range shots of anything up to a .44 Magnum. 

JESUS. Okay, Taiwan. You win.
