US Army Cobra Attack SPH-4 single
visor flight helmet with sighting monocle: This is a very rare
helmet complete with sighting visor assembly and cords. This helmet was
first used with the Bell Cobra attack helicopter by both the Army and US
Marine Corps. It was also used in the early Apache AH-64 attack
helicopters prior to the IHADSS (Integrated Helmet And Display Sighting
System) helmet. The nose machine gun on the helicopter is slaved to the
sighting monocle so that where the gunner looks, the gun is looking as
well, thereby increasing accurate fire on target. The helmet is complete
with special clear visor for use with the sighing monocle, military
avionics, M-87 boom microphone assembly, TPL fitting liner with styrene
impact absorbing liner. The
comm cord ends in U-174/U single pin plug. The helmet below average flight
use. Very good + condition.
Size Extra Large.
