A3 Russian Soviet M36 Spanish Civil War Helmet of the Republic
Russian M36 Spanish Civil War Helmet of the Republic. This is a beauty!!! One of my all time favorite helmet designs, the M36. These helmet were new to the Soviet arsenal and were first battle tested here in Spain. Very few Spanish troops were issued these. The majority of them were used by Russian forces and the International Brigades. I’ve never seen pictures of any of these on the heads of the Nationalists. The capturing and re-issuing of each others equipment was common place. The distinct shape of these and their direct tie to Russia probably had Franco’s men feeling that they’d rather do without a helmet than wear a captured commie lid. To that point, I’ve never seen an M36 “Francanized” post war helmet with the front bracket for the Franco Spanish eagle. Russian paint and Russian liner. We know that she’s been to Spain because she’s got a Spanish Chinstrap. This one is coming right out of my personal collection. I love this one but how many can a guy have?
