    Can someone tell me the type of helmet and goggle/eye protection currently issued to AFV crews?

    Sorry to ask a bone question but I haven't a clue of the answer.

    We get the Mk6A For dismounted shit and an AFV CrewGuard for mounted stuff.. its almost like a fibreglass bowl that clips to your headsets and will maybe at a push stop harsh language...

    Goggles wise... ya own or the ESS issued ones that everyone gets pre Tour..

    Thank you, that will be the NP Aerospace AFV/400 in civilian parlance. Thanks for your help.
  4. There are goggles available in the system (jsp 375??) they are goggles motorcyclist and normally the scott type. Replacement lenses are also available through the system. I have used these in the past as they are suited to road and off road work and tested for such.
  5. RAC crews on the last Telic got issued special forces crew guards. More or less the same as a crewguard but suitable for dismounted work but not as good as the new MK 6A
