The Bulgarian M72 helmet may be green on the outside, but believe me when I say that it is as red as can be. Each of these communist-era combat helmets is an authentic piece of Bulgarian military surplus and remains in excellent condition, ready to serve. These came to us in their original crates, so the condition on each M72 helmet is exceptional.
Bulgarian M72 Helmet
The Bulgarian M72 helmet is an authentic Bulgarian military surplus item. These steel helmets were once standard-issue service helmets and were originally designed for and issued to members of the Bulgarian land forces, one of the three major service branches that make up the military of Bulgaria, officially known as the Bulgarian army. Interestingly enough, these helmets were originally designed to replace the M36 helmet, an earlier German-styled helmet. The design for the Bulgarian M72 helmet is nearly a direct copy of the Italian M33 combat helmet with only slight aesthetic differences.
