A few weeks ago I had to sort through my Hungarian hats to purge for dupes and look for missing examples. I was about to put them all away again and instead decided I should take some pics of them first. The following pictures are almost all the hats I have and are from either the late 1980s (late Communist) or early 1990s (early Democratic). The immediate post Communist period was a time of experimentation with old and new, so lots of fun stuff from that period!
First up are the specialized Air Crew hats designed for ground crews. 87M swirl camo was worn by them, Airborne, and Borderguards only. The summer cap consists of a velcro chin strap hidden under the flap of material running around the exterior of the hat. Unlike a traditional M43, this flap does NOT fold down around the ears. The chin strap is simply to prevent the hat from being blown off the wearer's head. The winter hat is a more traditional flap cap style.
Communist Green style with the chin strap partially, and incorrectly, visible just below the badge. It should be tucked down lower
Communist 87M with flap in down position. Same construction as above
Same as above but customized to allow the flap to go down around the ears and over the mouth. Chin strap carefully removed
Winter 87M cap. Fake leather goggle strap? holders on front and rear of the hat
Next up are the standard field caps in various patterns:
Communist Green style
Communist winter 87M. Oddly designed. Ear flaps are stored INSIDE the hat when not in use. This was traditionally badged for rank, but the stuff on the left side was removed.
Standard early 1990s issue 87M
Standard early 1990s issue 87M with traditional rank display on left side
Standard issue Hurrikan tropical cap
Standard issue Pakistani desert cap with usual plastic badging
Standard issue Pakistan desert cap with cloth badging
Standard issue 90M cap with standard cloth badging
Same as above but with experimental plastic badging and traditional rank
Same as above but with experimental cloth badging
Experimental? winter 90M cap with cloth badge and velcro attached rank on left side. Note this is not the same rank badging used on the collars
And lastly, a service cap worn with the dress uniform. I don't know if this is standard or experimental
