JK 96 Light Steel Helmet (Chinese: JK96钢盔) is a Chinese copy of the American Personnel Armor System for Ground Troops helmet.

The Chinese PASGT-style helmet is not made of composite material, but rather from light steel.[1]

The helmet is worn by some elements of the People's Liberation Army and police SWAT teams in China to replace Soviet-era headgear.

The JK 96b is a version of the JK 96a with a different nylon lining.
