Have you seen what they put in a kamikaze? The helmet is to protect your head when you fall off the barstool.

Mainly radio, and to protect the hearing. Why you ask, because of the radio. And they didn’t design any specific kamikaze headsets so they used the standard helmets.

Amen @AC. The Long Island ice tea should come with life-jackets.

the radio makes sense but they wear leather helmets and it dosent seem like they would be able to put radios in there

Cold protection, Zero cockpits weren’t sealed tight. At the high speed from high altitudes I guess windchill would be a factor, along with the radio headset of course.

To look way cooler/ not hurt their heads before they got to the dyingtime ships.
