    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.OPFOR Helmets PICT0001OPFOR Helmets PICT0002OPFOR Helmets PICT0003

    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]OPFOR Helmets PICT0015-1[/img][img]OPFOR Helmets PICT0014[/img][img]OPFOR Helmets PICT0017-1[/img][img]OPFOR Helmets PICT0018[/img]

    Cool! I never seen OPFOR type helmets before. I think first one is VERY WEIRD.
