The Serbian Army has used the standard Yugoslavian M59/85 helmet since it was first introduced. With a proven track record in multiple wars and skirmishes over many years, the M59 can still be seen being used by reserve forces in Serbia. Referred to in Serbia as the NE44, it is rumored that the original M59 helmets were designed by Tito during World War II.
Serbian Army Helmet
We have four different styles of Serbian Army Helmets and have sorted them to allow you to pick which helmet style you'd like. While virtually all of the helmets are the same model, they do have different insignia on the front. Considering the age and actual field use these helmets have seen, you should expect varying degrees of wear and use to be present on each helmet. The pictures we have provided so a good representation as to what you'll receive, however you should expect to have no two helmets be identical.
- Red Star - These are the oldest Serbian M59 helmets we have, they should in fact be classified as Yugoslavian M59 helmets. The red star is stenciled on with paint and was the symbol of the former Yugoslavia.
- Yugo Double Headed Eagle - These are more modern helmets, with the double headed eagle sticker being the symbol of the Serbian Army. These are simply stickers that are applied with glue by the Serbian Army, they are not stenciled on like the Red Star helmets.
- Yugoslavian Army Symbol - Another more modern version of the M59, but older than the Yugo Double Headed Eagle. This sticker is the symbol of the Yugoslavian National Army and is more rare.
- No Insignia - These are plain M59 helmets with no stencil or insignia
