very nice opex do you think it saw action in the middle east
Thanks for looking and for your query James, I do not know to be honest.
I carried out some research, and discovered there was a Czech unit ( NBC ) that operated in the first Gulf war.
But the the only ref pics I have managed to source of this unit, shows the Czech troops wearing a two tone ( I think) cam desert cover.
I like this particular model as it is a bit different!!
I have a Czech Vz53/80 that came out of SYRIA and it's painted a desert tan
they exported a large number to middle eastern countries
great research opex ,so a gulf war lid ,i like the sound of that ,its definately got a bin there look to it cheers james
Thanks for looking and the confirmation, of it's possible origin BG.
Great information,which is most appreciated.

Thanks again James, it does appear to be pretty salty!!
superb ref pic opex ,this is the first time ive seen this pattern cover so thanks
Thanks for looking James, believe it or not, I have trying to find a picture of these covers for many years, so when I found one today,I was pretty excited.
I have read in reference books about Gulf war that CZ troops were involved with an NBC decontamination unit, it mentioned in the book that CZ troops wore covers on their helmets,but no historical pictures were supplied.
Voila I have finally found evidence of said covers..happy days!!!
