A mission configurable version of the Gentex Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH) based Tactical Ballistic Helmet (TBH)-IIIA, the TBH-IIIA MC is capable of integrating a broad range of organic and third party system components that enhance survivability and increase situational awareness. The Ops-Core Skeleton Shroud and Accessory Rail Connectors (ARC) provide the foundation for true system level performance, while the Ops-Core retention and suspension systems deliver immediate improvement in overall stability and comfort. The result is an affordable ACH-based variant of the broadly adopted Ops-Core FAST helmet line used by the Special Forces world-wide.
