    Default Czechoslovak Helmets: Two sides of the same coin

    Thanks to member Shadwellarmy (who should check his messages so I can pay him!) I've been able to get my hands on a Slovak Army Vz32.

    Which means, that I have a Vz32 from the Allied side, and from the Axis side in my collection now Thought I'd share a side-by-side photo I snapped this morning when it arrived.

    Very nice! I love the look of these lids. I also like the way you displayed these, Martin! Mine is black , for civies' and has no decals. It has the three pad liner and chinstrap though. I would sell half my collection for the SS variant!

    SS Variant? I don't recall the SS ever utilizing these, if you have any photos please share.

    Luftschutz variants, I'm famlilar with at least three: Luftschutz decal over the mustard brown paint; repainted blue with Luftschutz decal, and repainted gray with Luftschutz decal.

    The black ones were civil defense post war, when the army got upgraded to Russian helmets and the Vz53.
