Helmet and uniform employed by Hezbollah.

Post by Nodeo-Franvier » 26 Mar 2021 16:14

I have seen several pictures of Hezbollah soldiers,but none of them have helmet on.
Does anyone knows about the model of helmets used by this group? Is it from Warsaw Pact surplus or modern one supplies from Iran?
And does anyone know about their uniform?

Good morning Nodeo-Franvier,

your questions are interesting, about the helmet, the Hezbollah use of the Israeli Combat Helmet Kasda OR-201 is mentioned in the
Wikipedia article "OR-201". https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OR-201

Good luck for your further researches about the uniforms, etc.

Early Hezbollah forces would have used any helmet available and in Lebanon that could be a wide range from US M1, French M51, Warsaw Pact, Iraqi/Korean M80s and Chinese GK80s

They are often seen with Israeli 201s, more so since the IDF withdrawal from South Lebanon and the disintegration of the Israeli supplied South Lebanese Army, you see then also wearing the IDF Ephod vest.

Since the Syrian civil war where Hezbollah have been active they are wearing a PASGT copy, difficult to tell where they come form but I would assume Russian.
