From the eastern bloc - with bumps! These 'hats' performed the role of a helmet for Soviet tankers. Instead of being hard and getting a headache, these are heavily padded to soften bumping around inside a heavily armoured tank. They come with built in ear cups to soften external noise and also act as a headphone. A throat microphone straps around your neck below the chin. Please note these comms may or may not work, you would need a eastern-bloc tank to find out!
Unfortunately they are missing markings, so we cannot date them. These would be perfect for any particular eastern-bloc collectors who know their stuff. Alternatively these would be great for dress up parties, airsoft impressions or really keen four wheel drivers!
- Authentic surplus
- Padded ear cups to stop your ears ringing and act as comms
- Throat microphone and tank jack (may or may not work)
- Padding all over to protect users head from cold Russian tank steel
- Leather and metal fastener to secure to your head
Sizing: Most of these have no markings remaining. They vary from 48-59 approx. These will be sold at random as a collectors piece, email us if you want a specific size and we will try to accommodate you.
Weight: 0.95kg approx
Condition: Used/Very Good - Item has clearly had some use. Electronics may not work. Some are missing the back flap. There may be marks and signs of wear, but still lot's of life left. If you want more information on our condition ratings, check out our condition guide
I believe the One i recieved was a slighty differenct model to the one on the pictures as it has a different cord piece, other than that a really good product for a collection. Ive wanted this one for a while now and finally got the chance to get it. abit dusty but other than that good condition just be careful of some of the strings on the mic piece as they are abit fragile which I learned the hard way. good piece for collection and/or reenactment not sure what else youd need it for. cheerss armyandoutdoors
Helmet is in excellent condition! Thank you Army and Outdoors team!
When I saw it, I had to have it. I've always wanted one, and I think I got the last one in the Auckland store. Absolutely fantastic condition, I'm sure even the electronics are still in working order (sadly I don't have the tank to plug it in to).
