    Thanks James C

    the helmets used by the Egyptians look similiar to my post war West German M40 / M52 BGS / Police helmet

    and some may be the later type without rivets or vent holes

    I think these could be special helmets made for export? notice the Egyptian Republican Guard on the right has leather paratrooper type chin straps as used on the West German Model 1A1 / M61 Paratrooper helmet?

    the Egyptian Government probably had a special contract for these helmets from West Germany

    An Egyptian soldier stands guard in front of the presidential palace during a protest by members of the Muslim Brotherhood and supporters of ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi in Cairo Aug. 30. 2013.

    The Egyptian soldier has a French Desert camo helmet cover on his eastern european / com bloc steel helmet, looks like the same patten French forces used in the Gulf War 1991 era.

    Default French M78 / F1 with Desert camo cover

    here's my French M78 / F1 for comparison, notice the color looks very similiar? and may even be French mfg covers used by the Egyptian soldier, it even has the seam on the side the same as the Egyptian soldier's cover.
