    Hi Guys.

    As the title of this post state's I'm doing some research on 6 colour covers for M1 Helmets at the present time.

    I have read vauge references to these covers in the past Op Brightstar I think, I only have one pic of US troops,wearing these covers, I believe they were training with/Working alongside Egyptian troops,maybe 70's-80's scratch

    I would love to finally,pin this down,and have some definative info.

    Please help with my research cheers

    Yeah definetely an M1, I believe that it was OP Brightstar.

    The first operational use of a PASGT lid was OP Urgent fury ,which was 1983. Wink

    I should have snapped a few pics of the 3 M1 helmets i've found in surplus stores with the M1 choc chip covers....
    theyre legit; and the M1 choc chip covers are all dated 1977 and 1978; right around the same time the Transistional uniform cut Choc Chip jackets were contracted for the Special Forces; the uniform pieces are the same cut as the RDF ERDL uniforms and brown-ERDL before the adoption of M81 woodland.. so yes they exist, but very few of them; I think companies also made several for other countries using the M1/NATO helmets?
