While the front line troops were issued M35 - M42 style helmets, many anti-aircraft crews, Luftwaffe, and Home Guard defense force units were issued the Luftschutz helmet or what has been referred to as the “Gladiator” style helmet. Versions were made up of 1 to 3 pieces of metal plates fabricated to be a little lighter yet provide better protection from shrapnel. Of course the real benefit is that you did not get a headache from wearing a standard 4 lb. helmet! Our helmet comes with leather chinstrap and liner and is made up of multiple plates like early and mid-war versions. Large size 7-5/8” U.S. Luftschutz Helmet.

Includes free Luftschutz decal as long as supplies last
