Nice helmet! If used with the F-14A, the mask would probably have a CRU-79/P mini-regulator with a lower high pressure REDAR hose with locking connector at the end of the silicone hose instead of a three pin connection. The communications cable looks to be later type as used with the gray MBU-14/P, MBU-23/P, and HGU-68/P Y cable to boom microphone.

You are right about the mask, it is not original to this helmet. It was used for photo purposes only. I should have used another oxy mask i have one with the redar hose attached.

Thank you.
