    New directive scrim must be applied.  If you have a Mk7 Helmet you are supplied with a bag of MTP off cuts to scrim your helmet up (or should be) but if you still have the MK6A you are not supplied with the bag of scrim and are expected to find it yourself (but it must still be MTP)

    The newer type with less elastic and no re-enforced ear pieces is cheaper to produce

    And the newer covers are shaped to fit whereas the older ones were just Mk6 copies(in MTP) and originally for the Mk6A.

    Hence the over use of sniper tape to keep them in place. The old type covers if new were a bugger to keep in place due to the elastic being well,elastic so a tip was to use a cover one size up from the size of the helmet.
