In the late 1980s the military leadership of the USSR faced the need to equip the MVD and army soldiers with new helmets with a high level of protection. An innovative development was required, which, in addition to bulletproof qualities, would provide high wearing comfort and ease of production.
The helmet STSh-81 became just such a helmet. This replica by Gear Craft exactly repeats the design and appearance of the original helmet, but DOES NOT have protective properties. The helmet has a complex shape, consists of three separate plates, for the connection of which a special cover is used. This decision allowed to save on materials in difficult times for the country. Also, if one of the plates was damaged, it was enough just to replace one of them, not the whole helmet.
The "Sphere's" plates are made of plastic, but the cover and suspension system are made of original materials. This helmet was widely used during the Chechen wars and in other border conflicts of that time.
