    The M9 was used at the beginning of the Vietnam War, but was soon replaced by the M17, m17A1 and XM28 Gas Masks.

    Thanks

    I think it would have been the M17. The M17A1 and A2 were later versions.

    I'm not too sure when it was introduced, but I think it wasn't that long after the M17.... I'll double check though as I'm not 100% sure.

    Thanks

    I think it might have been around '86/'87. I went through basic in '84 and we still had M17s in training. I remmeber how they told us to take a drink while wearing it, unscrew your canteen, take a deep breath, break the seal, spill water over the mouth of the canteen, drink and re-seal. When I was in Germany in '88 we wear issued new masks with the drinking straw and canteens with new covers to insert the straw. wow, I just made myself feel old lol
