Was about to post that there's a fella behind the guy with the Minimi.

I have no idea why they are differing shapes. Just was the best option when going through the precurement process I assume.

I think it goes on your head?

It's ok. A little heavy compared to the para helmet (I have one I use on non live fire exercises). A lot of people add extra padding to the inside via foam and first field dressings. A lot of soldiers however never fit their helmet correctly, meaning it hangs at an angle on exercise and on the range, which makes them look like a bag of turds.

Does the job, and is an effective artillery weapon when lobbed at recruits

It looks more like a guy with an SA80 stood beyond the guy in front, you can see the top of the foregrip too.
