    I am told that Iraq also used Russian made tanker's helmets so who knows. I got it from a guy who was also selling Iraqi stuff, I wished I had asked him but that was 6 or 7 years ago...

    I got a similar one from a 82nd Abn vet who "Liberated" it from a soviet APC in Grenada along with a belt buckle and a canteen...these sure did make their way around.

    it is on the right side, he also sent the book and an account of how he got it

    yours looks "unissued" most Iraqi used tankers helmets usually have arabic writing inside the ear cup, but this could have come out of Iraq if it was found in a warehouse, they also found lots of Iraqi gear in storage that was unissued
