    From what I can see the one you just posted is the same model as the first compo you showed (the other one you didn't get!). The Indonesians have a startling variety of locally-made composite helmets - of widely varying quality and effectiveness, so I understand - and they also have used some of the South Korean export types. I have certainly seen pictures of this helmet before, and it is a local (Indonesian) product, and apparently came into service during the 1990s. I have seen what must be earlier models with a cradle-type Riddel-type liner; this one has a more advanced liner which has some similarities to Chinese (and Itialian...and some UK commercial products!) in have the cross-wise liner cradle with a central crown pad. It also has a three point-chinstrap whereas the early models had a simpler two-piece strap.This is all a bit vague, I know, but then you know, you don;t see many of these around here. Or anywhere other than Indonesia, really.
