    Default Romanian m73 airborne paratrooper helmet

    Just to share another recent purchase ,i will try and follow up with more detailed pictures but for now this is the best i have It sits quietly next to my polish Wz 63 ,aside from the obvious differance in colour i see huge similarities between the liners and wonder if they were working to a specific design or just a coincidence ?also im curious to know the clues on how to date these and not in a romantic way before you say it Click image for larger version.

    James i remember reading that Wz63 was used by other Warsaw pact countries, the above is the type used by the NVA, i understand the Wz63 was exported to other countries but Romania produced their own version!..
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Paul when i get some better pictures I'll show the inner liner ,it has a similar nape section too which protects the wearers neck from the laced size adjuster

    Sorry i must of double posted just as you typed Austro ,thank you yes the netting is usually the hardest item to find intact so i believe because they were easily damaged ,how true I'm not certain

    Nice and not common, James!
    I know this helmet but I have never had to have one in my hands, I will watch with interest the interior photos.
