    Ok, so here's the only bit of 'war booty' I got from OIF 1...a broken flight helmet and pressure suit.

    First the helmet.

    And the pressure suit. I haven't taken the pressure suit out of its little carry bag so I have no idea what it actually looks like or what size it is.

    Very nice bring-back SWAG. I remember you telling me about it last night on the chat, but was wondering if you'd remember to post it here.

    Any idea what model of suit and helmet it is? I know it is Soviet in origin. Funny thing is that this piece MAY very well have seen service in the Iran-Iraq War, Desert Storm I and Operation Iraqi Freedom. If only this piece could talk......

    I'm sure its definitely seen some action somewhere but judging from its condition it sat for a while and didn't receive any TLC. As far as the make/model...I couldn't tell. The only writing on the helmet is Cryllic, as for the suit I'll have to look at the booklet again but I don't recall seeing any sort of nomenclature on it other than Pressure Suit.
