Adavanced Combat Helmet Cover

The helmet cover is intended for camouflaging the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH).

ACH non-reversible coverType II cover has a communication flap in the rear

Description

The helmet cover is designed to fit over the ACH. Four classes provide different covers for use in the woodland, arctic and desert environments. The cover provides the helmet with signature reduction in the visible and near infrared spectral ranges, which provides against detection by visual observation or through passive night vision devices. The cover contains buttonholes that allow for the attachment of indigenous plant material and other camouflage enhancing aids. The cover also provides noise reduction (softening noise if the helmet strikes an object). The Type II cover has a communications flap in the rear. The communications flap is used to store cables from the headset-microphone that is sometimes used with the helmet.
