US Navy and Marine Corps F/A-18 Hornet fighter pilots in the Global War on Terror (GWOT) were issued the classic Gentex HGU-68/P flight helmet, which featured a unique single track visor to provide the lowest possible profile. This US Navy USMC Marine GWOT F-18 HORNET FIGHTER PILOT GENTEX HGU-68/P FLIGHT HELMET is in excellent condition, with some light scattered scratching to the visor and crown, a loose TPL liner without velour cover present inside, and with some light scattered age wear evident (ALL pictured). Otherwise, the helmet is in excellent shape, with absolutely no cracking or other damage to the tough Graphite/Nylon construction, which retains approximately 93% of the crisp, original non-reflective textured dark grayish olive green exterior finish.
Most interestingly, it's a Size Large, boasts the original tinted visor with fully functional pull down screw knob, bungee snap-on black leather visor cover, black leather crown covers at each side of the upper front, darkened metal oxygen mask clip mounts at each side of the lower front, one piece black nylon chinstrap and nape strap with sliding black leather pads, thick black leather edge roll, black rubber ear cups with black mesh covered internal ear phones, styrofoam crown liner, and main wiring with end plug, and is dated "6/98" (June 1998) on the original "HELMET, FLYER'S HGU-68/P / GENTEX CORPORATION" nomenclature tag inside. A beautiful example of a very rare, original.
