(NSFW) Incendiary Round Makes Direct Hit on Russian Soldier

Brutal drone footage released by Ukrainian sources shows a Russian Soldier being hit by a drone dropped munition. Unfortunately for the Russian, the munition being used is incendiary and not high-explosive, resulting in his helmet cover and arm catching on fire.


The cool thing about most helmets is that they're made from ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene and aramid fibers, which are both thermoplastics with some heat protection properties.


You can actually see in this video that the Soldier didn't know that his head was on fire at the beginning of the video. He was more focused on putting out the fire immediately in front of his face, and then his arm. This is likely because he had no idea that his helmet cover was on fire due to the heat protection offered by the fibers inside of the helmet.
