Flak Helmet Displays.


Recommended Posts

The Rooster

Greetings all. It was a toss up for me where to post these. They are Steel Helmets with accessories.

I could have put these in the flight helmet section. But I thought I'd put them here. And with the M1's around them I figured what the heck.

 

M3-M4A2-M5 Flak Helmets

 

Covering A11 And A13 Flight helmets all but 1 with receivers and o2 masks 2 bail out bottles goggles..

All The steel helmets are in great shape, some with some rust . All the chin straps are there.

They seem sort of thin to me metal wise. The M4A2 with its layered plates feels like the only one that would have a good

chance of stopping fast moving shrapnel. I don't really know of course, but it is the most solid of the 3.

 

Cheers!

5 The webbing in the M3 and Both the M5's is intact and pristine even.

The felt ear pads are intact on the M3 and the M4 A2 I doubt was ever worn or even issued.

Its that clean.

You are on a slippery slope my friend. I started out the same way. At first a little was good, but then I found I needed more. Before I knew it I was in over my head. Find help while you can. The monkey on your back will now become a 500 lbs gorilla in no time.
