    since this movie was made during the cold war era surplus eastern bloc helmets were not easy to get, I think they could even be props made of fiberglass and painted to look like some type of foreign steel helmet

    the story is supposed to be in a fictional place in Africa called Zangaro

    I guess it could be a reworked surplus Czech M32/34 egg shell helmet

    third world countries often received military aid or bought helmets and would often rework them by adding their own straps or liners, or the Czechs could have made a special contract for export only

    in the movie it was Known as the fictional "XM-18" that would have been a cool movie prop to own

    The version in the film is the late model 25mm Manville launcher with 18 round capacity. As has been said in many online sources, the explosive effects of the Manville in the film are a piece of fiction. The device was designed to fire 25mm tear gas grenades or flares.

    Mine was a Manville , it came out of a Quebec Prison they used it for riot control ! It was all old chrome or nickel plated and can in it's original case ! Had a clock work spring you had to wind . Ended up traded away for a SS uniform which I also should have held on to ! But that was years ago .
    Cheers Chris
