Helmet 2021-03-30T16:47:11.180740+03:00

1.   Bulgaria. Helmet (steel helmet) of the 1936 model. The weight of the helmet was about 1200 grams. The thickness of the steel is 2 mm. A characteristic feature of the M 36 was two vents located on the right and left sides, resembling the vents of the German M 16. There were three types of M 36 - "type A", "type B" and "type C", this was caused, first of all, by the fact that the helmets were made in different factories (Sandrik-Dolne Hamre Slovakia, - Bruder Gottlieb und Brauchbar-Brun, Moravia and Bratri-Brnocechia this factory once produced Autrian helmets M 17), as well as by the fact that in the process of using helmets, the Bulgarian military adjusted their requirements for combat helmets. The M 36 " A "and M 36" B " differed from the M 36 "C" only in the rolled edges of the helmet base (the "C" type is characterized by sharp edges of the helmet base) and the way the balaclava was attached, in the first two types the balaclava was attached to an aluminum hoop, which in turn was riveted to the helmet. In the M 36 "S" helmets, the balaclava was also attached to an aluminum hoop, only this hoop was attached not to the helmet, but to four steel shock-absorbing plates that were attached to the helmet. M 36 " A "and M 36" B " differed in the number of rivets that attached the balaclava hoop. The balaclava of the M 36 " A "was fastened with four rivets, and the M 36" B " with three, just like the German steel helmet M 16. The price is 60 euros.

2.    The helmet of a member of the Warsaw Pact, made on the type of the Soviet helmet. The price is 35 euros.

Spanish Helmet M42 2021-03-30T16:38:04.666400+03:00

Spain. The helmet, the M1942 helmet, also known as the "Modelo Z" and simply the M42, was adopted in 1942. The helmet's design was based on the shape of the M35 (M40) Stahlhelm helmet used by Nazi Germany. In comparison with the German original, the M42 body was thinner, and was made of lower-quality steel. This made it prone to dents and damage. The body had air vents with stamped rims, like the German M40, and raw edges, like the M42, without the small expansion characteristic of the German model. The design of the balaclava was similar to the M21 and M26 helmets-with three leather petals attached to a leather band around the body. The balaclava was attached to the body with seven rivets. The body was painted green, and, as is typical of Spanish helmets, there was a bracket in the front for attaching identification marks, which were used, as a rule, for parades and other ceremonies. The helmet served until 1979, when it underwent a minor upgrade.
