    Hi James,

    Thanks for sharing. It's interesting to see how Russia have been updating the older soviet era helmets for so long. I wonder how far back their stores go. The foam cover also seems to break up the original distinct shape of the shell.

    Your welcome Matt and thanks for commenting ,i wasn't sure whether to place this one in the steel section or composite section of the forum as it sits in between so to speak but yes you are right the profile of the Ssh 40 is altered with the fitment of the padded outer cover
    Regards James
