    Default Just a photo from Libyia

    Rebels had made the owner of this helmet run for his life (if he still had a life at the moment when they were bombed) somewhere in Libia

    (don't know where the photo came from which source)

    I am sure of that, poor cameraman but still good photo he could capture...
    Any idea what kind of M1 helmet this is, I'm curious.

    looks like it's a 1970's - 1980's european copy of the M1 judging by the smooth paint finish

    european export possibly Austria M58 / M75, Belgium M51, Denmark M48 , Norway M58

    cool photo

    Yes I think your right Battlegear still hard to tell though, I notice that a lot of different helmets they wear in Libia (no wait its Libya) Especially the rebels, maybe also interesting to take a close look at it, here is some more photo's I found on the interweb and like to share with you all guys..

    If anyone recognize the type of helmet models, don't keep it for yourself

    Cheerzzz

    Looks like a mixture of Warsaw pact Ssh clones, M1 Euroclones, British Mk4/5(?) and maybe a K-pot fritz for the guy firing the dushka on the technical. The first guy in close up seems to be wearing a fibreglass M1 liner. The ballistic protection qualities of a cabbage.

    I think the guy on the other technical has some masculinity issues. Compensating methinks.

    Thats what I thought too, so I can't keep it for myself or let it go by unnoticed. I have to share it also with my other war helmet enthusiasts

    the first Libiyan soldier's helmet looks like a shiny plastic euro helmet liner with camouflage

    the others look like some form of M1 with desert tan paint, could be from any country that produced the M1

    the last two are the Russian Ssh68 steel helmet and British MKIII - MKIV?

    here is one of my British MKIII helmets used in the middle east and painted desert tan
