Dive into Cold War history with the Issued Hungarian M1970 Steel Helmet. This helmet is perfect for military surplus collectors, enthusiasts of Eastern Bloc history, and those who appreciate robust, functional military gear. Modeled after the Soviet SSh-40, the M70 combines practical design with historical significance, making it a standout piece in any collection.

The Hungarian M1970, or M70, steel helmet was introduced in 1970 as a development of the earlier M50 helmet, itself based on the Soviet SSh-40 design. This helmet saw extensive use during the Cold War era by the Hungarian People's Army. Its robust design and practical features made it a reliable piece of equipment for soldiers, reflecting the military standards of the Eastern Bloc during that period. The M70 remained in use until the introduction of modern Kevlar helmets in the 1990s
