    I know they probably aren't, but most of the helmets resemble finnish m37's (especially the guy on the left in the first picture). m37's were still being used long after the war.

    Hi.

    According to my sources, the Saudi's wore Chinese M1 style lids, is it possible that the Iranians sourced the same type of lids, from this contracter ???

    It's just a hunch

    Iran is one of those mysterious countries, that are great at building up their nuclear arsenal, but not so good at sharing info, for us Helmet collectors

    I recently met an IRANIAN army veteran and he tells me he was a soldier during the IRAN - IRAQ WAR , he says almost everything they had came from CHINA and most of the weapons
