    Well, it looks like they have a frame, with all sides angled inward, built on the helmet. The bottom of the camera should have a protrusion that angles outward and should click into the frame on the helmet.

    A typical camera tripod would have a similar two-piece device on the top to hold the camera in place. I used to have a two-piece GPS holder in my car with a similar design.

    Took me a while to remember this so.
    No this is mounted on the Velcro.
    Had it been rail mounted there would have been a attachment mount on the rail. The rails are M1913 Mil spec.

    First aid kit and Type-15 (?) combat helmet. All images are high-resolution.

    The FAST style helmet has side rails and a high cut this is more like a ACH cut and no visible rails

    Rails could be under the velcro cover on the side.

    Possible but not the same type as the FAST rails which have a wrap around style these seem a straight line . Also the cover would restrict use of the NOD suspension bungee.

    A bit late message but I think it's also for the fact that Chinese army so large (+900.000) that changes are going to happen extremely slowly when compared to smaller ground forces and same is happening in India where there over 1 million soldiers in the army.

    If PLA's ground forces were "only" 500.000 strong I bet it would be better equipped, but I guess there is still mentality of "bigger is better" in Chinese armed forces even after recent reductions.

    I don’t think the PLA still has the mentality that “bigger is better”. For several decades, the goal of the PLA has always been to make the PLA lean and mean. They want to be able to fight a high intensity, short, high-tech and local conflict with elite and modern troops.

    However, one thing that the PLA has to deal with is the large population and large territory of China. With 1.4 billion people to protect, you will need a large force. There is just no other way around it. If you reduce it too much, your armed forces will be spread too thin no matter how elite they are.
