Repost on Facebook and Twitter

Soviet helmet SSH-40, in which the red army soldiers fought in the Second World War, is the basic helmet of the Russian army. This helmet was tested Semyon Budyonny (Soviet military leader, one of the first marshals of the Soviet Union, three times Hero of the Soviet Union, holder of the George cross at all levels). He was hit in the helmet with his sword, then shot at him from a revolver. The helmet passed the tests. "Well done. Good job!"- said the marshal.

Before that, the red army was armed with the helmet of SSH (steel helmet)-36 (it differs from SSH-40 the crest on top) and SSH-38 (without comb, but with a wide brim, which was not convenient to use).But not all believed a Soviet helmet SSH-40 helmet is great. So quite often can find the German helmet with the Soviet stars. This proves that the Soviet soldiers thought the German helmet more comfortable.

In addition, there are Hungarian helmets with German decals! The Finnish army did not have their helmets. Therefore, the soldiers of the Finnish army used helmets from other countries.
