Getting the right Army helmet mount for night vision goggles (NVGs) AN/PVS-7 and night vision goggle (NVG) AN/PVS-14 requires more than luck; it requires ordering the right NSN.
The AN/PVS-7 NVGs and the AN/PVS-14 monocular NVG use the same helmet mount, NSN 5855-01-610-8704. It fits on both the advanced combat helmet (ACH) and the combat vehicle's crewman's helmet (CVC).
Don't order helmet mount NSN 5855-01-612-5116. It's for a personal armor system for ground troops (PASGT) and is used only by the Marines.
Again, make sure you're requisitioning the correct NSN for the Army NVG helmet mount: NSN 5855-01-610-8704.
