    The rare East German Gerat 605 Export steel combat helmet is the closest thing that they would have used in Africa back in the early 80's

    author P. Mazrzetti told that those helmets were exported to Eritrea and Guyana

    the type of helmets used in the movie may have been props of this model helmet in use at that time in some war torn African country.

    Default Portuguese M940 / M40/63

    The Angolan War of Independence (19611974) began as an uprising against forced cotton cultivation, and became a multi-faction struggle for the control of Portugal's Overseas Province of Angola among three nationalist movements and a separatist movement.

    The Portuguese M40/63 steel helmet was also used in Africa and has a similar look to the helmets used in the Dogs of War with the short visor and conical /bell shape

    This Angolan soldier apears to be wearing a Portuguese M40/63 or possibly a Bulgarian M72?
