    Since 1948, Romania receives SSH40 Russian. And later only empty shells. The liners are manufactured on site.

    No the shell is 100 % soviet, the shine strap and the liner are roumanians !!!

    "It is therefore natural that Romania turned to the 40 Soviet Ssh helmet to fit his new army, as several countries of the Eastern bloc will do during this same period.
    And the USSR provided initially helmets Ssh 40 to Romania and anxious to produce its own equipment, Romania had only imported helmets Ssh 40 shells at a time that is still unknown.
    Romania produced cap and chin which equipped the shells manufactured in the USSR. We know today that they were the proportions of helmets imported from the USSR, or why they were produced in part in the two countries."

    Romanians helmets were not Soviet marking . The liner is not smooth, it has patterns that do not exist on their Romanians counterparts . Chinstraps rivets are painted , it is clearly visible.

    Both helmets completely of Soviet manufacture.
    Brown leatherette not uncommon. The pattern is correct.

    I think that after finishing production of the helmet SSH-40 and SSH-60, manufacturing facility from the Red October plant was transferred to Romania. Signs of the similarity of the main parts of Volgograd helmets and helmets Romanian clearly visible. The main question is: which factory in Romania made ​​helmets?
