    another section of head gear examples from the persian gulf and middle east ,ive since learned very recently that the iraqi m80 is not a republican guard medina division recon unit helmet but a 3rd Tawakalna Mechanized Division helmet so great to finally have some closure on the insignia Attachment 796839

    Hi James,

    Thought I would show you my Soviet tank helmet. Received yesterday from the Vet who liberated it from a T72 in Iraq during GW1.

    Hi James, Mic attachment is still there and writing is still visible under the rear skirt.It is too dark to photo now but seems to be (size) 57-58, then underneath in smaller letters 147 4982 HC7 (could be a Z instead of 7) -72 (possibly year of manufacture).

    thanks robin ,it sounds very much like 72 ,i have a similar dated soviet tankie in the winter pattern ,i find them very addictive to collect and there are so many subtle differances in the design

    that serial number sounds familiar im sure ive seen this on bulgarian tank helmets if not soviet then most definately an soviet derived eastern block version exported to iraq ,iraqs procurement of military gear was so varied and quite an interesting study i think a lot of gear was from the warsaw pact countries ,if the the helmet is soviet there should be a poct size stamp somewhere too
