First seen by opswarfare in a book on special forces, the man in the middle is wearing an armoured face mask. opswarfare thinks these masks should be used more, as they provide important protection to the face. Also, there is potential for incorporating imaging devices and communications equipment. These men belong to Nucleo Operativo Centrale di Sicurezza [NOCS], a special forces branch of the Italian Police Force. opswarfare has, to date, not seen any other organisation that uses these masks.
