    The red triangle is usually indicative of the Iraqi Republican Guard.

    Nice helmet!!!

    It's definitely a keeper.

    The Medina Republican Guard was one of many RG Divisions.

    I believe this helmet is for the 3rd Tawakalna Mechanized Division.

    The reason I say this because the numeral on the helmet is a 3. I also found a captured Iraqi tank that has this same insignia on it. I just picked up one of these that is identical to yours. They are very cool pieces.
