This is a ShlO-82 Russian summer helmet, as used by the ANC MK cadres sent to the Soviet Union for training on the Mi-8/Mi-24 during the late 80's. Those training on the L-39 aircraft would also wear this helmet as an inner, together with the ZSh-3M outer hard helmet (coming soon!)

Well, at least it'll take up less space!

Russian ZSh-3M outer helmet as used by the ANC MK cadres sent to the Soviet Union for training on the L-39 during the late 80's.

It was used with the leather helmet (ShLO-61, ShLO-78 or ShLO-82) and Km-32 mask.

Do you source these locally or from overseas? My favourite is by far the early Kentron helmet.

The ZSh-5A was purchased locally and the ZSh-7A was given to me by a local friend.

The other Russian helmets were purchased from Russia and Belarus.
