Abstract:

The M-17 Protective Mask was evaluated with the understanding that if at all practical, this mask be considered suitable to meet immediate operational requirements even without use of the APH-5 Helmet. The interim report submitted by this Board reference 8e did not provide a comparison between the E-75R3 and the M-17. However, the E-75R3 is considered significantly superior to the M-17 Protective Mask in all respects for interim use by Army air crewmen, when the APH-5 Helmet is not worn.
