Posted before but there have been repeated queries about the procurement of EXFIL Helmets without comms which are being used by the Army & CRPF QAT.

Actually the Northern Command didn't buy helmets separately. They were part of the TONBO deal.
If we combine them both then (Size 1 Medium/Large) EXFIL weighs around 1.18 Kg + ARJ-17(900g)/ARJ-12(600g) = 2.18/1.78Kg Approx

(Procured by CRPF not by the NC)

If we combine more weight +450g of PELTOR Comtac & Batteries to balance the weight of TIS/NVD at the front then it is around 2.25-2.5 kg. which IMO not comfortable & heavy for terrain along LOC. But of course it is required in Valley's Urban ops.

I guess that's why Army is using lightweight coms with these helmets

I searched a lot but didn't get any info regarding these comms which are commonly used by the Army.

This helmet came with INT COM (Vel Cro) but Army is using these silver coms instead.

PARA Regt. do have these high cuts (Unknown maker) since a decade, but were only seen with either small comms or NVDs

This is just an opinion based on observations on what Army is actually using. What should they use or what they need, well these are never ending topics.
