Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

Not really common to find

Hi Olivier, thanks for showing an example of that particular tactical marking, it was obviously different to the other helmets but not clear enough to be positive about.

 

Cheers Lewis

Not meaning to hijack your thread, but thought I'd share a similar liner that I have in my collection...it also has a brownish colour to it as a repaint, with a paper decal

Hi Lewis,

 

Is there any info to go along with this picture?

 

thanks!

Steve

 

Hi Steve, sorry not my photo, I wanted to know more about the photo, I just captured the image from post #6, enlarged part of it, and posed the question as the detail on the rear of this one helmet appeared different to the others in the photo, but Olivier has answered the question that it's another tac sign.
