GENTEX BAUER DH-151 BAMF 1
F-5 E TIGER - PRU-36
The complete helmet designation is DH-151 PA-594-BAMF-1.
BAMF stands for "Bundesamt für Militärflugplätze" (Federal Agency for Military Airfields), which managed all aspects - technical and operational - of the Swiss AF.
It was issued to F-5E/F Tiger II pilots, configured with a standard PRU-36 double visor kit.
The same helmet model was also provided to Mirage III pilots, nevertheless, because the upper initiating handle of the Mirage's Martin Baker Mk. 4 ejection seat could interfere with the standard double visor assy, a locally designed and differently shaped visor cover was fitted.
The helmet was available to pilots with or without nape strap.
