The RHNO II comes complete with a
shroud and mount. The shroud is designed to fit standard one-hole helmets
as used by the U.S. Army. It accepts all standard bracket-style
mounts. A wide set of legs securely clamp under the lip of the helmet,
helping to keep it from rotating. The Mount features three points of
adjustment: vertical, fore/aft, and tilt. Unlike the previous USGI mount,
the RHNO II features 1″ of vertical adjustment. This is a welcome
addition since many users had a hard time adjusting the legacy mount to fit
their head, causing them to adjust the way the helmet rode on their
heads. Additionally, a full 1.60″ fore/aft adjustment allows the attached
night vision goggle to sit at the correct distance from the eye(s). 17º
of tilt adjustment finish off the adjustment options. All moving parts
are locked into place via levers that control their travel on straight
rails. This provides the user with “infinite” adjustments rather than
relying “teeth” to set movement at certain points.
The RHNO II utilizes the “force to
overcome” method of stowing the goggle when it is not in use. To stow the
goggle, simply grasp it and rotate it up. The opposite is done to bring
the goggle back down in front of the user’s face. NVG’s that utilize the
auto-off feature are compatible with the RHNO II.
This version of the RHNO II is
designed with a Bayonet/Horn interface. It will work with night vision
goggles that require this type of mount, such as the AN/PVS-7B(D), AN/PVS-14.
