The MBU-12 mask 
by: Sven Scheffers
The Gentex model MBU-12/P is designed to replace the MBU-5/P and offers improvement in comfort and efficiency when compared with the MBU-5/P mask. The first MBU-12's were in the olive green color only available but later a gray version of this mask became available. 

The USN uses the mask with various communications, under designations MBU-14/P, MBU-15/P etc.
