Soviet SSh-68 Steel Helmet

To change information
Soviet SSh-68 Steel Helmet

This was the final steel helmet used by the Soviet Union, still in service, as from the late 1970s. Note four liner fixing rivets, high on the shell. This helmet design is often called the “cone head” helmet because of its high profile.

Unlike the earlier SSh-40, it features four pads instead of three.

Very simple oilcloth-type liner, not padded. Extremely simple, to the point of crudity, chinstrap.

Liner is designed so that helmet can be worn on top of a substantial cap or other head-covering in cold conditions.

Known in the West as the 'conehead' for obvious reasons.
