    GENTEX DH-189 CVC helmet

    Post by mk1rceme on Sat Jul 21, 2012 2:01 pm

    Just got this one in from a CGN member. As I understand it, these were used in the 80's but not quite sure.

    Hi, I served in the Militia from 1984to1995. I use to see these helmets all the time they wore worn by crews maning the Grizzlys APC, and Cougars AFV. Hope this helps Thomas

    We still used them with the Grizzly's when I was in Bosnia in 1997 and possibly in 2000 but I would need to confirm this last date. There are two types of shells, the split shell with two pieces like you have and a one piece shell. I have a spare one piece shell laying around if you are interested. They are ballistic and made of kevlar.

    Thx!

    Most of these helmets went to surplus (after the TCCCS comms system was brought in), with the comms kit taken out. The helmet was on issue from the late 70's till 2001 in the regular force, still in use upto mid 2003 in the reserve force. The version that you have there was most likely seen service with a Regular Force unit with the 2 part helmet plate. The single helmet covers are actually US stock brought into service for ballistic properties and were issued to Reserve Force units.
