The TNVC Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 is a full spectrum counterweight / storage system for the modern combat helmet. Incorporating operator feedback as well as our staff’s own battlefield experience, we designed the Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 to be a highly functional, modular accessory for all modern warriors. It provides useful storage and retention of mission-essential gear and will attach to any currently-fielded ballistic or bump helmet with Velcro. Building on the feature-rich MK1, the MK2 variant is designed for operators running an NVG system with a remote battery pack. This would include goggles such as the TNV/Sentinel, ANVIS AVS-6/9, AN/PVS-23, AN/PVS-31, GPNVG-18, etc.
The Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 is packed full of useful features for Armed Professionals and Civilian Hunters alike. No other helmet accessory system offers this level of versatility. Designed by TNVC staff, the Mohawk is manufactured in the USA, and Berry Amendment compliant.
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Signal Strobe Attachment & Retention A vertically-oriented Mohawk strip is the centerpiece of the design. It features a Velcro pile surface that accepts attachment of all currently issued / fielded signal strobe devices. The continuous pile strip allows for precise placement of the device on the rear or top of the helmet. It also provides enough room for attaching a blast sensor device. An adjustable shock cord net provides secondary retention for the devices while not limiting access to their controls. This is important when performing high stress activities such as airborne operations and high angle work. Don’t wear a strobe light? No problem. The shock cord net provides excellent storage for a tourniquet – Easily accessible and always handy.
Battery Box Storage Compartment This is the main difference between the Mohawk MK1 Gen. 2 and MK2 Gen. 2. The MK2 Gen. 2 features a purpose-built pouch for holding remote battery boxes for NVGs. The pouch is perfectly sized to hold the standard issue ANVIS Box, Adams Industries Ground Warrior Battery Pack, or the AN/PVS-31 BNVD “winter” Battery Box (also used for the GPNVG-18 and AN/PSQ-36). Dual top straps secure over the battery box lids, providing added security and protection, while leaving the center open for easy access to the power switch. What if you don’t use a remote battery pack? Well, the compartment can be used to hold all sorts of things such as an extra MBITR Battery or a can of dip.
Ready Access Batteries Two elastic loops are located on either side of the main compartment, providing immediate access battery storage. These loops allow operators to grab two batteries without ripping Velcro. They also provide secondary functionality by holding chemlights for nighttime airborne operations or field ID while hunting.
Headset Cable Management The Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 has two bottom-located Velcro strips for bundling and storing communication headset cable. This extremely useful feature solves one of the most annoying issues facing operators. The headset cable that plugs into your body-mounted PTT is often left dangling to snag on everything during training or storage of the helmet. Or if you have dual comms (one for team radio and one to plug into the vehicle radio), one of the cables will be left to dangle when you dismount the vehicle. The Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 cable storage straps will stow those pesky cables, protecting them and giving you freedom of head movement.
Secondary Retention The Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 features two loops for routing 550 or shock cord on either side. This is for secondary retention of the entire system during high intensity activities. Velcro does not provide 100% retention on a helmet. The Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 provides the opportunity for the operator to run cord from the system to the rear helmet bolts or rail. Doing so will keep your Mohawk Mk1 securely in place regardless of battlefield conditions.
User Feedback Generated Gen. 2 Features Lighter weight 500D Cordura Nylon material compared to the 1000D Gen. 1 versions, color and pattern matched Velcro pile on all versions, improved cable retention for helmet mounted comms, and a built-in cord lock retainer to keep the bungee retainer from hanging loose.
The TNVC Mohawk MK2 Gen. 2 is the most feature-rich helmet accessory system available. But, if you don’t run an NVG with a remote battery box, check out the Mohawk MK1 Gen. 2, or if you are using the smaller BNVD battery pack with the AN/PVS-31/31A, please check out our Mohawk MK3 Gen. 2.
