    Default ATC Helmet

    Hi Composite fans, here's an ATC ( Air Traffic Control) helmet ,which I thought you might like to see. I believe they have the same ballistic properties as a Mk6, and are very similar ( if not ?) the same shell as the CVC version.Note the MK6 suspension similarities too.This one is missing the headphones obviously and has been sprayed tan and green, hard to tell from the pictures I know. Hope you like and thanks for looking,Opex

    Many thanks James, to be honest I'm not 100% sure , but in one of reference books it states the material of the ATC is the same ballistic properties as the CVC, but I don't know what that's made of either??
    These were worn in place of the Mk6 if the user needed to wear headphones, I have seen some reference pictures of the profile helmets in use on Armoured Vehicles, but not sure if is was a CVC or this ATC type helmet...oh,it's so confusing

    Many thanks Jake, I took the pictures in the loft, so the colours of the paint job are not clear, but it appears to have been done to match a Desert/urban look ??

    hi opex ,ill have a rummage in the loft ,ive got three headsets in storage somewhere ,when i get chance ill dig one out and send it your way ,im not sure if suitable but would at least complete the look of your helmet ,i think they are racal ones with the defenders and mic attachment ,to be honest im not sure how they attach to the helmet ,they might very well have press studs even ,ill have a look

    That's very kind Mate, that would be really good of you, I am not sure how the comm's attached to these style of helmets,in fact I'm not even sure there are any attachments fitted to these models, that's got me thinking though! I will do a bit of research on this and see what I can come up with

    great stuff opex ill have a rummage on friday and sent out pronto ,i dont think there is much if any difference between the atc and the cvc so im sure the headset will make a great addition to your nice example ,the only catch is you have to post up the completed helmet ,id like to see the result
