How does one even pronounce that name? "Goo-no"?

Given you'd have rubbed shoulders with several people who'd have used these helmets - what's been the feedback from the users? Were they well liked?

Which designs spawned local developments and - does South Africa still design and manufacture helmets such as the Z-150 or the variants?

Ha, know you want me to give away the text of my proposed book! :lol:

Generally, the 316/317 series helmet was very reliable, required hardly any workshop maintenance and was well liked by the crew.

The Kentron Helmet Mounted Display helmet was based on the 316.
