“从航空铝材到钛合金” RHNO II H夜视仪底座支架
在查找最近的陆战队真兵照片时，发现在LWH盔上出现了一款新的底座支架。经过一段时间的研究后，得知这款底座支架是由NOROTOS公司出品，产品名称: RHNO II H对于NOROTOS这家公司我

Standard Rugged 底座支架
Norotos’ Legacy product the Standard Rugged Helmet Mount is the most widely used helmet mount in the US Military with over two million deployed in service. The “RHNO” delivers tried and tested reliable durability for HORN style NVGs that serves as the foundation of the Norotos’ commitment to constant evolution in product engineering and development.
The Standard GI Issue “RHNO” set the military and commercial standard for high-strength and quality durability in a night vision helmet mount solution, in addition to intuitively placed operation in expanding user-friendliness. An unrelenting commitment to constant deepening and widening of the expanse quality engineering could enter provided the basis for Norotos’ path of development.
Force-to-Overcome Deploy/Stow Release activates through gently decisive user pressure for flip-up/flip-down, while Tilt and Fore/Aft-Eye-Relief Adjustment provide an incessant custom-fit user experience that enables extended user operation.
Extensive engineering experience and precision manufacturing contribute resiliently durable longevity in a helmet mount—the Standard Rugged Helmet Mount is firmly established as representing the origins of Norotos’ commitment in providing unremitting stability and enduring quality for night vision mounting systems.
• Optimized for use with PVS 7/14 Binocular & Monocular Systems.
• Norotos' Patented Force-to-Overcome (FTO) Flip-up/ Flip-down use and stowage.
• Multi-adjustment tilt options for maximum eye comfort.
• Quick Release equipped.

RHNO II H视仪底座支架
Building on Norotos’ legacy product the Standard Rugged Helmet Mount, the RHNO II H for HORN style NVGs delivers rugged reliability and safety infused comfortable longevity into an elegantly engineered superior helmet mount solution. With already 100,000 units U.S. Military deployed, the U.S. Army approved RHNO II has met and exceeded all requirements in raising the standard for helmet mount qualifications.
Ergonomically optimized for safety, RHNO II features an intuitively user-friendly operational experience with a customizable fit. The lower profile stow position provides a heightened compact silhouette and a center of gravity promoting natural head and neck alignment thereby greatly reducing muscle strain and fatigue.
Glide-Rite Infinitely Adjustable patented innovation permits infinite adjustment within a static range of motion secured with positive-lock, offering the mechanical advantage of exceptionally customized performance. In the process, maximizing safety and field longevity through a high strength yet lightweight material build and Anti-Wobble optimized stability incorporating a superior degree of tolerance control.
The RHNO II H combines Norotos’ legacy of over twenty years of night vision mounting systems into a commitment for constant continual progression of product lines in equipping soldiers, law enforcement, and outdoorspeople with the apogee of ruggedly durable—reliable stability.
前天才拿到这个新的底座支架，今天周末就拿来和陆战队用了很久的Standard Rugged 底座支架做个对比。
整体感觉RHNO II H比Standard Rugged 看起来更美观，不但美观，性能也有很多提升。
RHNO II H比Standard Rugged的第一个改进就是材料上的区别，RHNO II H 采用了钛合金材料，更加的轻。Standard Rugged 采用的是航空铝材。
功能上的改进，RHNO II H的支架可以上下滑动类似AKA2的支架，Standard Rugged 则无法上下滑动。
上部的滑轨，RHNO II H比Standard Rugged 更加的方便使用和更加顺畅。Standard Rugged 的上部轨道如果不定期的上润滑油的话，滑动起来会很艰难，RHNO II H 的上部轨道则不存在这样的问题。
架子放下后，RHNO II H也比Standard Rugged 的调节范围更大。
RHNO II H比Standard Rugged 的底座也更加的贴合LWH盔前盔沿， 使用起来也更加稳定。
毕竟是新时代的产物，总体来说RHNO II H比Standard Rugged 在性能上更加优秀，但是有一个问题我一直很纳闷，Standard Rugged 颜色是黑色，在实战中不容易反光也不容易被发现。但是RHNO II H 却是金属色，很容易反光被发现。由于RHNO II H 是最近几年开始装备，不知道在战场上的实际效果。Standard Rugged 使用多年，已经受了几次局部战争的考验。所以RHNO II H 全面替换Standard Rugged 还需一段时间。随着ECH开始逐步装备陆战队，不知道RHNO II H 会不会是个短命的产品？
