helmets in use by new Afghan army, do you recognize this helmet?

Article about: can you identify the helmet this Afghan soldier is wearing? I think it might be a Chinese GK80 steel helmet judging by the profile? it doesnt look like a Romanian M73

    here's a photo of an Afghan getting instructed by a US soldier in marksmanship training, looks like he's got a Chinese export helmet with homemade chin strap.
