    MdI issue... cool Very Happy

    IIRC the removable liner (I have a set) are MdI issue, not something specific to paras.

    MdI = Ministerium des Innern (Ministry of the Interior). Like other Communist states, the MdI was responsible for keeping order and security domestically. IIRC they also controlled the Volkspolizei (police) as well. They were organized along military lines and were designed to be a check on both the military or other potential threats.

    I'm pretty sure that's a para liner.

    I believe those para uniforms issued by DDR-MdI were from a special unit designated SEK (some sort of anti-terror unit that acted in the last years of the DDR)

    Wow, Gulf91, superb jacket/coat! And great pics Albano! Thank you both for sharing!

    But why oh why did Western countries never explore the way of the bullitproof visor on helmets like the former Soviet countries - it may be cumbersome and ineffective, but it looks so darn cool!

    And why oh why are all Stricktarn uniforms so SHORT? If they are ever found above a size 52 they are always 52K as in SHORT?

    Great pics!

    It's interesting to note that West German special police forces, most famously GSG-9, have also worn para type helmets over the years.
