SSh-40 Helmet (Postwar, Soviet Star)


The SSh-40 is an updated version of the SSh-39 steel helmet by replacing the the cloth liner with a riveted leather liner. Shortly after World War Two, the SSh-40 saw another revision to it’s design by adopting a 4 point chinstrap similar to that used on the East German M56 steel helmet. This helmet is painted with a red and yellow soviet star with hammer and sickle.
