PROTECTION, INC. DH-151 BAMF-2 

"HGU-55 LOOKALIKE"

 

The second version of the BAMF-2. Again modified in order to save weight, the helmet was fitted with lightweight instead of cast oxygen mask receivers and the same double bungee visors of the HGU-55.

Helmets of the same version are still in service today, in light grey livery or covered with SOLAS reflective tape. White painted version are known, but they have already been phased out.
