The MSA ACH, based on MSAs original MICH helmet, was developed for the U.S. Military Special Operations Command, meeting stringent requirements and unprecedented demands , and setting new performance standards. Named a Best Invention by U.S. Army Materiel Command, the U.S. Army was so impressed that MSAs ACH was adopted as the standard of issue for all troops deploying to the Iraq/Afghanistan Operations Theatre.
The MSA Ballistic Helmet Pad System is the suspension system for ACH, MICH and TC 2000 series ballistic helmets for the military. The Pad System provides standoff, comfort, protection and stability. The pads are easily attached, removed, and reattached to the inside of the inside of the helmet shell via a hook and loop fastening system in order to facilitate user comfort and integration with other equipment. The pads remain firmly in place when attached and provide the user with the ability to attach the pads where the wearer desires (i.e. in a variety of locations) and permit accommodation among different size and shape heads and some equipment.
