I'll make couple of photos in the morning gents. As for the covers, soviet had two colour: green and black. Later on, as it's stell in service in at list 3 exSU republics, excluding Russia itself, different types of cover appeared. The most famous is Russian 'gorod' (urban).
The helmet itself is those three plates, they go into hat. The hat has kinda pockets for the side ones. Inside it has comfy pads on the inner hat structure.
Next to it it's not a para, I recently got one actually but it's still in the post. Its' British MK6A.( i gues I need one FM12 now)
You are more than welcome to use the idea with gas masks, the person who has shown me that concept wouldn't mind I'm sure
it's cophy as pillow, I was lucky got it from an ex-service man from Georgia. Prices for full titan even in Russia are high. Mixed metal-titan are slightly cheaper. Last mixed one I saw for sale in Ukrainian auction has been sold for like £100
