Desperate times required desperate measures. After the emergence of a new terrorist threat, special forces of the USSR needed new weapons and equipment. First of all, this influenced armor protection, it was necessary to develop body armor and helmets that would provide the highest possible level of protection during the combat in buildings or transport.
In 1984, the "Altyn" helmets specially designed for the KGB were adopted by "A", "B" and "C" special forces. These helmets became the latest means of protection, so they were classified, but this did not prevent them from becoming the legendary symbol of the KGB and FSB special forces. This replica from Gear Craft completely externally copies the original helmet and DOES NOT have protective properties. This helmet is presented in two versions: with a visor and a connector for a Kenwood radio station or without a visor and with a dummy radio station.
The helmet has a brutal appearance and sets you apart on the battlefield. "Altyn" was actively used by FSB special forces in Afghanistan and Chechnya, as well as other conflicts, which makes this replica an excellent choice for re-enactors.
