Hey all, I apologize if this was asked before, but I've seen pictures of Battalion guys running Opscores AND "TC-2000"-style helmets. Is the decision on which bucket they use up to them? Or up to commanders?

Individual choice, the OpsCores were getting issued out to replace the MICHs. There were some AirFrames floating around too, but I don't know if they kept those or how they acquired them.

Thanks, I suspected that someone more "in the know" than I would be able to answer this with ease.

I've spent...quite some time...recently, analyzing ranger gear and I think there is no definitive schema to it, however it seems that with newer guys/in training you see the MICH more often, while with junior NCOs and up / in deployment the FAST seems to be more common.
Also to be mentioned: FAST Maritime is far more frequently seen in recent pics compared to the Std. Cut, which is rather seldom to be seen but not phased out...
