Beautiful example, I particularly like the "tigerstripe" cover, which I believe was worn by Military police units ??
I have the woodland cover to match this helmet, but I am pleased for you that you have this cover , as they are not common,good one James
many thanks opex ,yes i believe you are correct on the units who use/used this pattern cover ,its quite a striking design and a bit different from the norm ,and i always have an eye for something different ,thanks for looking mate
"The blue tiger stripe or blue lizard pattern (also called purple tiger or purple lizard) was used extensively by the Serbian police, originally introduced 1992 when the nation was still Yugoslavia. Since 1997 this was worn as field uniform by all police officers for riot control, field exercises and during the conflict in Kosovo."
A quote from Camopedia!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

a small update to the m89 ,its funny really but sometimes i look over helmets ive had in my collection for years and they still throw up the odd surprise i was wondering why the decal had a smaller raised circle underneath so my inquisitive mind decided to have a looky and there underneath was this decal ,its not a decal insignia im familiar with so if anybody could kindly shed some light ,cheers james
