15 02 2017

A new element since 2009 is appear on the soldier helmet. A new kind of NVG  mount for a new NVG. The PSQ-20 is a night vision goggles with combine night vision and thermal vision, in the same size of the pvs-14. But to be used it must be mounted in a new rhino arm. The PSQ-20 mount is composed of a mount, a arm and a battery pack.

The mount is in 2 parts, the front where you can fix the arm and back where the LPBP is connected to powered the NVG (both are link by a wire which passed inside the helmet shell)


The font look like the PGAST mount with a one hole screw, and the LPBP mount is fixed with 2 screws of the chin strap.

The arm clamp has pin for the NVG power (on the back arm too) to be connected to the mount. The LPBP (Low Profil Battery Pack) as pin too for the background mount.


The LPBP could be disconnected from the mount in pulling the black knob on the top.The front knob is used to open the front panel  and access to the batteries. 4 AA

Known with a lot of names, the US ARMY’s helmet is used all arount the world by occidental armies, different names too, but same line. During the second gulf war we have seen on field a mix in same unit with PAGST and MICH helmet, proved of the future replacement. The USMC has a more protective and lighter version of the old PAGST, (the LWH).

Differents names  as usual for differents brand (MSA = ACH, Gentex = MICH, SDS = Warrior), a new profile with a chin strap fixed on 4 points. Inside no leather head band, a combination of foam pad to a best comfort which adopt all the head outline.

Front of the helmet, you could fix some gears for night vision devices (rhino plate, willcox or norotos 1/3 points).

And to finish like a cake you cover the parcel with a beautiful cover (in acu partern!)
