"m 59 fj"
Hi, mates !
Read, that this pattern Fallschirmjäger pot, (liner manufactured by Schuberth company), was introduced in August 1961 in the Bundeswehr.
Otherwise, I heard, this pattern helmet was delivered not until 1971 to the Bundeswehr …
There´re also some different designations for this pattern helmet …
For example: "FJ59 BF", "M 1A1 LL", "M59FJ", even, "M 1971" !
How long this helmet was in use in the BW ?
Read, until 1998 ! ...
But I cannot believe that, because the "Gefechtshelm M92" was introduced in 1992 actually ...
As far as I know, such helmets also were in use in Dutch Counterterrorist Forces.
Further informations appreciated.
Thx in advance,
