This NVG mounting system allows the mount to "break away" from the base under a stressed condition, such as when prompted by interference during fast roping, maritime operations, hard impact or when entering or exiting mobility platforms. Without the Wilcox breakaway feature, the potential for induced neck injury and NVG breakage are increased. The Wilcox L4 G24 NVG Mounting Systems Product Line is featured with a wide range of adjustments to customize the position of the Night Vision Goggle for proper eye position, and provide a maximum low profile position to the helmet.
The Wilcox G24 P/N 28300G24, Breakaway Base with the Universal NVG Mount fits into the Wilcox 1 and 3 hole shrouds, Ops Core VAS Shroud, the Standard Army One Hole Base Plate (P/N 274897-1) and Norotos Universal Shroud (P/N 1817010).
The G24 has the famous Wilcox breakaway feature that provides the wearer the protection from neck or head injury.
The Fore/Aft travel has been increased to 1.40”
This NVG Mounting System is unique that it provides two modes of operation.
The first mode allows the mount to “break away” from the base under a stressed condition such as getting snagged during fast roping or hitting a hard object when entering or exiting a vehicle or building. With this breakaway feature serious neck injuries and equipment damage can be minimized or avoided.
The second mode allows the Universal NVG Mount to securely lock the mount to the base.
