Suitable for helmet size 58 - 60.
Camouflage helmet cover (Stahlhelmtarnüberzeug) was introduced in 1937. Material was printed on both sides, each side with a different pattern, which increased the possibility of its application. There was often the penetration of color on the other side, which ultimately led to the creation of unintended effects and the formation of new shades.
There are 4 basic types of camouflage patterns: "platan" (earliest); "palm" (used since the turn of 1941/1942); "oak" and "pea" (in use since 1944).
Each of these patterns have two main versions - the "summer" - with a predominance of shades of green and the "autumn-spring" - with a predominance of shades of brown.
