Upgrade an existing Gentex HGU-56/P Rotary Wing Helmet System and benefit from new features at a fraction of the cost of a new helmet. The HGU-56/P Improvement Kit includes a new Energy Attenuating Liner (EAL), articulating nape pad with chinstrap system, comfort liner, and ear cup fasteners. Users will benefit from the advanced lightweight retention system, which increases comfort and stability while reducing the headborne weight by 50 grams.
- The updated EAL improves situational awareness by shifting the head forward inside of the helmet shell to increase field of view by 3 degrees.
- An updated Maxillofacial Shield (MFS) is also available for users who may experience discomfort or interference with their existing MFS as a result of the forward head shift.
- Compatibility with Helmet Mounted Display systems, Night Vision Goggles, oxygen delivery systems, and communications equipment are maintained in the upgraded helmet system.
