Army Recalls 44,000 Helmets

According to a story just published by the Department of Defense, the Army is recalling 44,000 Advanced Combat helmets found to be defective. The ACH is an Army derivative of the MSA Gallet developed Modular integrated Communications Helmet originally fielded to Special Operations Forces beginning in 2001. The defective helmets were manufactured by ArmorSource LLC (formerly Rabintex USA LLC) and represent 4% of the total fielded ACH. However, the Army has ample stocks and foresees no shortfalls. Rabintex is an Israeli armor manufacturer.
