French Helmet "Casque Troupes Toutes Armes Modèle 51 OTAN" Japy 1953
French Helmet "Casque Troupes Toutes Armes Modèle 51 OTAN" or "TTA 51"
After world war 2 the French came up with their own US M1 clone.
It looks a lot like the US M1 but the shape of the shell is different. The US M1 liner will not fit into the TTA 51.
This TTA 51 is a type 2, it has swivel bails to hold the chin strap. The type 1 has fixed bails like the first US M1 helmets.
My helmet is made in 1953 by Japy
For pictures of the liner that came with this helmet see: part 2
