    Hi there,

    I would like to introduce you to a German Armidhelm model B 862 B2 from the troop trial.

    Of many project studies by the companies VDN/Busch and Schuberth Werke Braunschweig, only 3 shells and two interior fittings between 1987 and 1991 were included in the troop test.

    The shells:
    - Steel/Aramid bilayer helmet
    - Aramid 1250gr
    - Armind 1500gr

    The interior:
    - with straps and sweatband similar to the US version with chin strap with old Bundeswehr buckle.
    - Original form of the "NOSHA" interior with chin strap made of synthetic fiber, predetermined breaking point and press fastener.

    Ultimately, in 1991 only the B 826 B2 was declared to meet the requirements and was technically mature, and it was introduced in 1992 together with the revised NOSHA interior and chin strap.

    Here is the troop test helmet with the 1500gr. Schuberth shell, the archetype of the NOSHA interior fittings and the synthetic fiber chin strap from 1989.
    The shit strap is still like the USM1 helmet and is made of leather on an HBT strap.

    From here I'll let the pictures do the talking.

    Great example and thanks for sharing ,i like the green leather liner reinforcements /comfort sections which give a far more refined appearance to this trials model over the production model what a shame little details like this were dropped

    Yes, that's right. A lot of fine details and much more expensive to manufacture. That was certainly the main reason to simplify it in series production.

    Hello,

    Here is a very rare matching official trail helmet cover for the aramid test helmets of the 1980s. There were different models between 1987 and 1990.

    One side of the cover is 5 color camouflage - test pattern Flecktarn B (large) the other is white. The loops run in an x-shape.

    Regards

    wasn't the early steel cover fitted with crossed strips in the early days too?

    I think your correct Adrian it did if memory serves the steel pots had an S prefix ink mark stamp followed by the size and the Gefectshelm covers had the G prefix followed by the cover size

    Here is a favourite Bundeswehr flecktarn cover of mine from my collection with what looks to have the British GS Mk 6 style elasticated foliage bands fitted ,the cover is non reversible from a section of material ,from what i can remember the seller had lots of surplus Bundeswehr helmet covers up for sale at the time so they came from the same source German B 862 B2 Aramid Helmet Troop Trial  - TruppenversuchGerman B 862 B2 Aramid Helmet Troop Trial  - TruppenversuchGerman B 862 B2 Aramid Helmet Troop Trial  - Truppenversuch

    Hello,

    could you post pics of the lacing and the bottom of the helmet cover?

    Hello,

    could you post pics of the lacing and the lower rim of the helmet cover?

    So far it looks more like a self-made helmet cover to me... i.e. neither a StoV production nor an official trial model. The various trial models are known so far.

    Regards
