Does anyone have directions on how to convert a Czech helmet liner to look correct for the early war russian liner? Until I can find a size 3 russian helmet I am going to have to wear the czech helmet some one gave me.

My head measurement is 60 and I can get into a size 2 so you must have a large head.

Da! I too have a size 60 swede and a size 2 is fine.... I used to have a size 3 Ssh40... its bloody enormous.

I've actually no idea why size 3 was actually made to be honest. No other Soviet gear goes above a size 60.

I can only assume it was for a particular purpose, like wearing over a radio headset or something.

Another size 60 bonce here and my size 2 is also just fine.

The SSh40 is good for '41 where you can make out the rivets in pictures there are plenty of them in use. If you want to adjust it you can either loosen off the string a little or remove some padding.

For earlier save up your pennies and buy an SSh36 is my advice there are actually more of them around than SSh39s now.

I wear a 61 in soft caps and in a german helmet. I have had a size 2 before and it gave me really bad headaches, I had to remove all the padding and it just wasn't comfortable. The helmet is not for display, tactical use only. When I am at public evnets I just wear a soft cap, but I have seen way to much stuff flying through the air at tacticals to chance not having a helmet on.

Comrade,
Remember unlawful use of the scale of issue of the CSLA is a KOMSTITCH matter, please draw back from the heresy for the sake of your Political Perception.

A vzor 52 or 53 is what it is, a historical artefact of the Progressive 3rd Republic.

Still, success in your Combat Mission Comrade.

It is a Maoist Wrecker Comrades, showing the weakness of their Political Perception with unlawful Malware it be loaded onto your computer complex.

Ignore it in regard to posting then report it to the Comrade Moderators to liquidate.
