by battle gear
Im a fan of the Hungary M50, I like it because it's like a variation of the classic Russian M40, it does seem to be very strong and heavy , it's very well made
I wonder if these were supplied to North Vietnam during the VN war? I know they did have some Hungarian equipment and the Hungarian AMD-65 assault rifles.
the M50/70 does have an improved liner system and chin strap and is interesting varient, Ive seen several brought back from the Gulf wars once used by the Iraqi army.
Hi BG, thanks for looking and the the information regarding the usage of the models by Iraqi forces, I was not aware of that so thanks again
I've never seen a Hungarian/Iraqi M70 helmet...but it would be a very cool thing to get in my collection.
I remember seeing one on ebay one time that was brought home from Iraq and it looked like it was in a fire and was heavily damaged , a battlefield pick up.
