TROPHY HELMET 2
This is a Kevlar helmet captured by our Ukrainian Armed Forces. Our friends from the special forces unit said that one of the infiltrators from the sabotage group attempted to approach our military positions while wearing this helmet. However, their mission failed, and we ended up with this trophy helmet.
There are no markings indicating the helmet’s model, and it is not part of the standard equipment used by Russian occupiers.
It closely resembles the American MICH 2000 helmet (NIJ IIIA), but the suspension system sets it apart from that version. Such helmets were worn by Wagner fighters. It’s unknown whether they are manufactured in Russia, but it’s likely that Wagner imported these helmets from China.
The cover on this helmet is also quite intriguing, as it seems to have an aramid Kevlar lining. It was challenging to remove and, so far, impossible to put back on.
This helmet was worn by a Wagner fighter with the call sign “Lys” (Fox) and the cover has the name “Afonya” written on it. Having this art piece from such a helmet will be an exclusive addition to your collection.
