Soviet Summer Tanker Helmet

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

Seen on the noggin of every Soviet and Post-Combloc tanker, these helmets 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 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 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 no electronics, or with two different connector setups.
    • Russian-configuration wiring with either a four pin setup, or Cold War era circle connector setup
    • Intact wiring, untested working condition
    • Some have internal throat microphones

Condition

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

Solid

Little bit of ware on the earpieces, other than that in great condition. Converted to use a 3.5mm jack rather than the yugo 7pin.
