      Hello, the suspension system is very similar to that of U.S. helmet liners during the Vietnam era. Nice.

      Thanks! these helmets were made in South Korea and sold to the Iraqis, the suspension is removable and easy to replace, made just like a late issue US helmet liner that also had the snap in webbing design
