A good season just got a bit better for Navy. On Monday, Navy released its new custom-designed, hand-painted helmets for the Midshipmen’s upcoming game with Army and they are stunning.

With the help of Under Armour, the Midshipmen became the first team in NCAA history to have position-specific helmets, which they will wear when they take on Army on Dec. 12. Each helmet features a battle ship from the U.S. Naval Fleet that correlates with a specific position.
