    Afghan National Police Helmet

    Post by swamp yankee on Tue Dec 11, 2012 7:54 pm

    Found this about a month ago on my lunch break in a local gun store. A customer of their's brought this in along with some patches. It's a Soviet SSH60 painted tan and oversprayed with what looks like some kind of stencil. Very similar to US 3 color desert camo. Don't often see any helmets from Afghanistan.

    Very nice! Out of interest may I ask what patches were bought in with it? I havnt seen this style of stenciling in use before, it looks great!

    Ha, I didn't buy the patches or even pay much attention to them. I'll go back and see if they're still there.

    Thanks for all the comments.

    I think the guy said he was in a Military Police unit that was involved in training the ANP. I think there was an ISAF patch, a unit patch, and maybe a couple of afghan patches. I will stop tomorrow and see if they are still there.

    Which store did you find this helmet in CT?

    I used to live in New England. The only shops I know of in CT are Military Specality and Army Barracks but that's it.

    When you saw an ANP wearing a helmet, you KNEW the area was dangerous!

    Here are the patches that came in with the helmet.



    In doing some research here, the bear patch is Missouri National Guard worn by the 205th Military Police Battalion who depoloyed to Afghanistan in 2010. They were part of a mentoring program with the ANP and the Afghan National Border Police.

    Just a random Gun Store. Not even sure it's actual name. Plenty of other places in CT to find stuff other than the Berlin Turnpike Very Happy
