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.

Great product

First time buyer from this site. Shipping was quick and I got what was expected. As soon as I put on this soviet helmet I could hear the red orchestra blaring. I drove with it on blasting hard bass and drinking copius amounts of водка

Comfy Addition to my collection

Arrived like new. No damage to it that wasn’t repaired before I got it. A good price for it too. Not many at a price this low in good condition so I had to buy it. Now I can comfly pretend I’m in a tank in Ukraine while I fall asleep.

Great for no reason

This helmet helps me sleep at night in a creepily loud house. The patron saint of tanks watches over me.

Awesome addition to my hat collection

This thing actually fits my massive head pretty well, and is in suprisingly good shape. One of the best hats in my collection
