Night Vision…Introducing a New Helmet Mount

A new helmet mount, NSN 5855-01-610-8704, is available for mounting the AN/PVS-7 night vision goggles and the AN/PVS-14 monocular night vision device.  The new mount fits on the advanced combat helmet (ACH) and the combat vehicle crewman’s (CVC) helmet.  It uses the current front bracket, NSN 5340-01-509-1467.

The new mount allows you to vertically adjust your night vision and lock it into place.

The old helmet mount, NSN 5855-01-551-4525, will be issued until stocks run out.

The following NSNs belong to helmet mounts that are terminal items.  Don’t use them with the ACH or CVC helmet:





Dispose of unserviceable helmet mounts at your local Defense Logistics Agency (DLA) Disposition Services (formerly DRMO).  Do not send unserviceable mounts to Tobyhanna Army Depot.  Units will not receive credit for turning in serviceable or unserviceable mounts.
