East German Combat Helmet


Out of stock



The original design for the shell was introduced in 1944, but never made it into service with the Wehrmacht. In 1956, East Germans began using the shell with a WW2 style liner. In 1976, this liner style, which was cheaper and more comfortable than the previous liner, was introduced and used until the reunification in 1989.

These helmets were exported to MANY countries who used them and some still to this day. Vietnam, Serbia, Bosnia, many African countries, and other various nations are among the many. 

Please note: as these are military surplus there may be some colour, quality and style variation to the image shown.
