According to Yoav Kapah, President and CEO of ArmorSource, this is the third significant order awarded by the US Government since the beginning of the year.

ArmorSource is also the only authorized manufacturer of the new Lightweight Advanced Combat Helmet (LWACH) for the US Army. The company has an ongoing contract with the Army for 105,000 helmets, which will be delivered by the end of the year. The LWACH is replacing the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH), offering reduced weight and improved protection.

Furthermore, ArmorSource has been awarded a long-term “blanket” contract for Personal Armor System for Ground Troops (PASGT) helmets under a Foreign Military Sale to US allied nation.
