15,000 mark 7 helmets will have been delivered to Afghanistan by the end of 2010; and another 15,000 will have been delivered by the end of 2011.

There are no plans to issue the mark 7 helmet to troops not deployed on operations, who will continue to be issued with the mark 6a helmet; however, because helmets are a personal issue item, personnel retain and will continue to use their helmet after their tour of duty.

Does this answer the above question?
