    OPFOR Helmets

    Post by 1stDivVet on Tue Jun 09, 2009 9:35 pm

    Here's some helmets used by early OPFOR Forces. First up, 1950's type plastic cover. These are altered WW2 liners with a strap from a M1910 or M1924 haversack for a chinstrap. The cover is a plastic like children's halloween masks are made of. It is orange and has been painted gray. The old green and white OPFOR logo is hand painted on both sides.

    An OPFOR helmet from Ft Cambell. These were used by the 101st AB OPFOR forces. Helmet is a standard 1950's M1 liner with a large, hand painted yellow triangle on each side[img][/img][img][/img]

    Early 1970's into the 80's Soviet style hard plastic cover for liner. This one has a 72 dated snap in suspension liner. Color is a blueish/grey green. [img][/img][img][/img][img][/img][img][/img]
