Hi James. I could be wrong here and I have not read all posts so forgive me if this has already been said but I thought scrim and sniper tape was a recent thing done in iraq and afghan not during the 1st gulf war. I have seen our troops wearing woodland dpm with the likes of issue scrim and US choc chip scrim over it in theater up until just a few years ago. I would bet despite the army's apparent strict and frankly barmy regulations on helmet scrim and with mtp being introduced over last few years there is still guys with that config now. Its a cracking MK6. I am weirdly fond of them myself I have a few although they are horrid things to wear! The liners in the MK6A and MK7 are vastly improved with little actual modification to the original design. Regards. Sean.
