    That is one ugly camo cover. Very interesting look of the whole thing, though.

    Hi BG, very nice to see the original ROK version of this Helmet, are there any other distinct differences than this one to the version that was exported to the Middle East apart from the clip on chinstrap?. I particularly like the Mitchell style style cover ,a very interesting piece indeed
