    Default Strange plexiglass cover

    I found a military coloured cover in a friends barn, and have been thinking about what is supposed to be attached to. I live in denmark and it is painted in a flat green colour like our tanks, trucks and so on. Is there someone out there who have an idea about what it can be.?Click image for larger version.

    I have thought of that myself, but cant find any pictures of the helicopter types in danish service with a pod like this on. The danish airforce have had Bell 47, Sikorsky S-55, Alouette III, Sikorsky S-61, Hughes H-500, AS 550 Fennec. The older types were not camuflage painted, but in silver with Dayglo panels for easy recognition.

    It looks awfully similar to a removable nose canopy for a helicopter such as a Sikorsky HO3S-1 or a foreign made version?

    It kind off does, but this one is made from fiberglass, not riveted aluminium and is slightly more elongated lenghtwise.
