United States Coast Guard SPH-5CG Helicopter Helmet. SPH-5CG, a helmet for helicopter pilots of the United States Coast Guard (Coast Guard).
The current US Coast Guard helmet color is metallic blue, but this model seems to be from the late 1980s before that. The design conforms to the SPH-4 used by the US military in general, and the appearance is almost the same, but the SPH-5CG was given the model name as a product exclusively for the Coast Guard.
The difference is that the shell of SPH-4 of the same period was made of FRP, while SPH-5CG was Kevlar composite FRP, and SPH-4 was a suspension harness for the interior, while SPH-5CG was for fixed-wing aircraft. The so-called TPL (thermoplastic liner), which is the same as the HGU-55P of HGU-55P, is made by laminating and welding corrugated plastic molded into a semicircle according to the size of the pilot's individual head and covering it with a cross cover.
By the way, these specifications are inherited by SPH-4 in recent years. The actual product was obtained at an American aviation surplus shop in the late 1990s. There, I was told that the Coast Guard relationship is a rare model that rarely appears.
The condition of the actual product shows usability, scratches, scratches, and peeling of the reflector tape on both the interior and exterior, but there are no terrible stains or missing parts. Clear and smoked visor mecha is fully operational. There is no damage to the boom microphone, either the main body or the wiring. However, since all the sponges in the ear receiver housing have deteriorated, they have been removed at present, and the receiver body is fixed to the housing with double-sided tape.For perfection, you should reattach the sponge inside the housing, but if you just want to display it, there is no problem at present. The mannequin head in the photo is for shooting and is not included in the product.
