FIELD GRADE REPRODUCTION

WWII GERMAN M38 Fallschirmjäger JUMP HELEMT.
SIZE 71 SHELL AND 59-60 LINER.

A variant of the M1935 helmet with a shell lacking the projecting visor and deep, flared rim was issued to Fallschirmjäger (German paratrooper) units. It was so designed in order to lessen the risk of head injury on landing after a parachute jump; also to reduce the significant wind resistance and resulting neck trauma. Early Fallschirmjäger helmets were manufactured from existing M1935 helmets by removing the undesirable projections, which were omitted when the new design entered full production.The modified shell also incorporated a completely different and more substantial liner and chinstrap design that provided far more protection for German airborne troops.
