Ballistic helmet ACH


The Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) is based on the MICH (Modular Integrated Communications Helmet) design and  provides an improved helmet to soldiers.

Combat Helmet delivers advanced ballistic, fragmentation, and impact head protection, with unsurpassed comfort for long-term use.  The helmet’s low-profile design reduces the risk of interference in target acquisition and ensures compatibility with NVGs (night-vision goggles), CBRN (Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear) Gas Masks, and communication devices. An innovative suspension system of movable comfort pads provides customized sizing and superior comfort. The sized pads conform to the shape of your head to distribute the helmet’s weight evenly and comfortable. Simply adjust and move the absorbent pads for a flexible, personalized fit.

ACH allows maximum sensory and situational awareness for the operator. This includes an unobstructed field of view and increased ambient hearing capabilities. The ACH's chinstrap retention system and pad suspension system provides unsurpassed balance, stability, and comfort. This system provides for proper size, fit, and ventilation. The ACH's pad suspension system provides impact protection throughout all operational scenarios, including static-line airborne operations.

The edge cut of the shell has been reduced when compared to the helmet, Ground Troops and Parachutists. This enables better situational awareness through improved field of vision and hearing. The shell provides ballistic protection. While the ACH has 8 percent less surface area than the Personnel Armor System Ground Troops, most of the material was removed from the front of the ACH, with a smaller amount removed from the sides. Nothing was removed from the back of the helmet.
