One of the latest and the most expensive ...


It's a new entry, but I find it really cool ... it's the super technological helmet of the pilot of F35, with increase reality systems and a lot of other "tricks".

I've always fancied Pickelhauben and similar cavalry helmets (like those of dragoons, British life/horse guards, French carabiniers, Russian cuirassiers etc etc), but the adrian helmet I like even better. Way cooler than British tin hats, those seem so basic and aren't aesthetic at all.

French ww2 adrian, my favourite model and colour

the police in SFRYugoslavia used helmets that looked like a mix of adrians and bobby helmets

Anyone, what's the story of Americans wearing adrian helmets in ww1? Mostly they're seen only with tin hats/brodies.

And of course my favorite, Scanderbeg helmet:

Skanderbeg’s helmet is made of white metal, adorned with a strip dressed in [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold"]gold[/ame]. On its top lies the head of a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Horned"]horned[/ame] [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goat"]goat[/ame] made of bronze, also dressed in gold. The bottom part bears a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Copper"]copper[/ame] strip adorned with a [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monogram"]monogram[/ame] separated by rosettes * IN * PE * RA * TO * RE * BT *, which means: Jhezus Nazarenus * Principi Emathie * Regi Albaniae * Terrori Osmanorum * Regi Epirotarum * Benedictat Te ([ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jesus"]Jesus[/ame] Nazarene Blesses Thee [Skanderbeg], [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince"]Prince[/ame] of [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mat_District"]Mat[/ame], King of Albania, Terror of the [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ottoman_Empire"]Ottomans[/ame], [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monarch"]King[/ame] of [ame="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Epirus"]Epirus[/ame]).

America didn't have a helmet design of its own in WWI and joined the war in 1917 with little done in being ready for it... we got most of our equipment second hand from the French and British. Most got the British style helmet, but some were given the French Adrian.

Thinking to a historical helmet, I've always found fascinating the one found at Sutton Hoo [Anglo-Saxon helmet]: you can admire it on this page on British Museum site
