The U.S. Army has awarded Hebron, Ohio-based ballistic helmet manufacturer, ArmorSource LLC., a contract to supply 14,000 Advanced Combat Vehicle Crewman Helmets (ACVC-H) at a value of $6M. ArmorSource presented the U.S. Army with a modernized version of the crewman helmet based on its Next Generation ballistic solutions that utilize some of the most advanced Honeywell ballistic composite materials available. The first deliveries of the new ACVC GEN II model are expected to ship in early 2023.
HEBRON, Ohio, Jan. 12, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — “It is a huge honor to be selected by the U.S. Army to supply our troops with such an innovative product,” says Brad Grunden, ArmorSource President. “We are extremely excited for all of the men and women who will soon be equipped with the most advanced combat vehicle crewman helmet technology available in the industry. ArmorSource’s ACVC GEN II helmet exceeds the ballistic and fragmentation performance of the legacy ACVC but at a much lighter weight. We believe this product sets a new standard of safety and comfort for these users.”
The ACVC GEN II is one of ArmorSource’s Next Generation helmet solutions scheduled to be formally introduced to the public at the SHOT Show in Las Vegas on January 18-21, 2022.
