Iraq M90 helmet with blue paint

Recommended Posts

This M90 helmet looks like it was made in tan, then overpainted with blue and then with green.

 

If it was just green I'd wonder if it was Iraqi Republican Guard, but `not with that blue undercoat.

One of the holes in the shell is missing the plug for it, so one part of the suspension is not attached to the shell.

Interesting helmet - I have not seen one like it with this color.

That blue paint drove me crazy because it is a color normally reserved for UN Peacekeepers. But this morning I found out they used that color for Iraqi police/security forces helmets and uniforms.

Very interesting helmet, the dark green does look somewhat similar to Republican guard helmets. I have seen blue helmets and web gearvdiscribed as air force but not such a vibrant color.

 

I dont think it is Iraqi police because while some Iraqi security forces for Saddam era helmets after the US invasion and reformation, they were usually the later style of helmet and were not used for very long so I do not think it would have had time to be repainted before they were phased out. The last picture appears to be of hard hats.

 

It's a head scratcher, whatever the case nice helmet!
