US Army Awards Revision Military $98M Contract For New Advanced Combat Helmet Generation II 

The Department of Defense just announced a contract award to Revision Military for production of the new Advanced Combat Helmet Generation II. The helmet shares the same shape of the current issue ACH, but boasts a 24% weight reduction thanks to the use of Polyethylene materials.

Revision Military,* Newport, Vermont, was awarded a $98,111,803 firm-fixed-price contract for Advanced Combat Helmet Generation II (ACH GEN II), which includes the procurement of 293,870 production units. Bids were solicited via the Internet with five received. Work locations and funding will be determined with each order, with an estimated completion date of March 6, 2022. U.S. Army Contracting Command, Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland, is the contracting activity (W91CRB-17-D-0008).

Congratulations to our Soldiers who will be getting a lighter weight helmet and to Revision, for getting the chance to build them.

    Huge win! congrats!

  2. Great news really, what more can you say.

    Everyone really loves that sweet neck strain of trying to keep watch over an area while you’re laid down in the prone.

    Hopefully they are better quality than the Danish issued ones that fall apart

      Could you please elaborate? I am very curious.

      I believe the UK use the same (or very similar) helmet

    2022 completion? Is funding for development?

  5. Adam says:

    So these will be ACHs made out of the same stuff the FAST helmets? Would have been a lot cooler if they would’ve just gone with them. Not as cheap, but a lot more CDI points.
