MK-V Diving Helmet

The MK-5 Diving Helmet and associated Deep Sea Diving equipment are no longer utilized by U.S. Navy Divers for diving.  The MK-5 served many arduous years as the Navy's primary diving helmet and is now utilized for decoration and as a symbol of Hard Hat Deep Sea Diving throughout the world.   Most of today's Navy Divers have never had the opportunity to dive the MK-5 Diving Helmet. The MK-5 was replaced in the fleet by the MK-12 which was then replaced by the MK-21 as the Navy's Hard Hat for Deep Sea Diving.
