graphic showing SF helmets version 1.0 and 2.0

The Air Force Security Forces Center is rolling out the NextGen 2.0 helmet later this year with several improvements to include bolt-on accessory rails and night vision goggle mount, a chinstrap extender for gas mask use and more accessory mounting options. The effort is part of the center’s “replace through attrition program” that builds on the functionality of the NextGen 1.0 helmet released in 2020. (U.S. Air Force graphic by Greg Hand)
