    Default Schuberth M826 + Tropentarn cover

    Gentlemen, my latest addition to my BW helmet collection, having already got a "Induyco" made Gefechtshelm model M826 (resplendent in Flecktarn cover), I set out to find a "Schuberth" made one, and here it is, complete with Tropentarn cover, U.S. Army issue "cats eyes" band in tan, ESS goggles with dust cover in tan and Night vision attachment strap & plate/adaptor....just as it might appear worn by a ISAF Bundeswehr trooper in Afghanistan (except a little cleaner !).
    Prost ! Steve.

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Very nice, looks like something I was issued.
    Although it was in another camouflage and the helmet was made in France

    Where did you get the goggles if I may ask?

    Thanks for the comments chaps ! the ESS goggles were sourced from the States (U.S.A.).....via E-Bay ! James the sun beanie hat is a common find on E-Bay, for not a lot of money...I can supply a dealer link if required.....37Webbing, I take your cammo was the original flecktarn (Danish) from which the Bundeswehr were influenced by when deciding on cammo patterns in the late 1970's.....
    Prost ! Steve.

    Yep, both M/84 and M/01 (tropical / desert). I've got flack jacket and helmet laying around somewhere.

    Although the Danish army "invented" the current issue flektarn in 1972 (T/72) it was not issued before the late 1980s, in a slightly changed colour scheme.

    And please supply link for dealer
