POLISH SUMMER TANKER HELMET

Ivan, the tank’s coming! Oh God, he has his helmet on! He can’t hear us! Oh God!

Following World War II, Poland found itself under the influence of the Soviet Union, which is when these modified Russian tanker helmets were issued to the Ludowe Wojsko Polskie (People’s Polish Army, LWP). These remain unique for their softer exterior and full-head covering in contrast to the more prominent hard-helmet and cap-like designs of the era. Although these are summer variants, the helmets are still well-padded to drown out noise. This allowed the LWP tank crews to hear and respond to orders given through a sewn-in microphone and comms system. We’re not able to confirm whether these are still functional, but we are excited to offer our limited quantity to collectors.

Specs

  • Authentic Post-Soviet Bloc military surplus
  • Two insulated earpieces with sound dampening
  • Leather size-adjustment straps and buckles on top and back of neck
  • Fastens under the neck
  • Available with and without external microphone and comms cable
    • Russian-configuration wiring with four pin setup
    • Intact wiring, untested working condition
    • Some have internal throat microphones

Condition

All helmets are authentic Post-Soviet Bloc military surplus. They exhibit some signs of use and storage, but should clean up nicely.

Awesome addition to my hat collection

I'm very suprised at how well this thing fits my massive head, and how comfortable it is. The earphones built in are suprisingly noise canceling, and the wiring is all in good condition.
