Availability: In stock
This helmet is new in the box with communication systems, oxygen pipes and mask, cloth helmet, tools and instructional manuals.
The helmet is also equipped with a sun visor inside the helmet shell not shown in the pictures.
As far as I can tell this helmet was made in 2000. When we received these helmets, I was told that they had come out of North Korea
With the development of the Chengdu J-7 fighter jet in China, which was based on the MiG 21. the Chinese continued to exchange technological information with the USSR. China later developed the Shenyang J-8. This was based on the design of the Soviet Ye-152 developmental jet.
I have not been able to find much information on this helmet, but this helmet looks to be made in 2000, which would still put it with the later J-7 fighter aircraft or the J-8 Fighter.
During May 2013, production of the J-7 was permanently terminated, bringing to a close a period of manufacturing stretching almost 50 years.
