CHINA has shown off its ultra-high-tech attack chopper helmets that can aim killer machine guns using the pilot’s eyesight.
Chilling footage shows the helmets with the self-aiming function being controlled by the pilot’s eye movements.
O vídeo, shared by the Chinese military on social media site Weibo, demonstrates how the deadly helmet worked during combat training.
The high tech helmet was also used by the pilots of the Z-10 attack chopper, during military exercises, de acordo com Global Times.
The Z-10, which is equipped with the latest technology, was used during exercises near Taiwan last year.
The outlet states that the “specially made” helmet “can display all key parameters and battlefield dynamics directly onto the visor” and the pilot can use it to aim “as the weapons will point to wherever the pilot is looking to through the helmet.”
It comes after the Reino Unido, Rússia, os EUA, China and France released a rare joint statement admitindo “no one can win a nuclear war” amid fears of an upcoming World War 3.
Tensions have been mounting between China and Washington – mainly over Taiwan – sparking fears of a world war.
