It was officially called tetsubo (steel cap) but was called tetsukabuto ("steel helmet") by troops. It was made in the shape of a dome with a small brim. This helmet was made of a thin inferior chrome-molybdenum steel with many proving to be very fragile, being easily pierced by shrapnel and/or gunfire.

The Russian M-36 The M (model, or model) 36 was designed by Aleksandr A. Shvartz, and began production in 1936. Its large front rim and wide flares over the ears provided good protection for the wearer. The M-36 was also fitted with a comb on top, which allowed for ventilation. There were also apocryphal claims that the comb was designed to deflect saber blows and give the helmet some decoration. The Russians used the French Adrian helmet prior to the development of the M-36.

SSH-40. The SSh-40 was the last and most commonly seen in-service helmet used by the Soviet Union during the Great Patriotic War. SSh-40 was only manufactured in three sizes, 1–3. The SSh-40 was supplemented by the SSh-60 and finally replaced by the SSh-68. Like many things Russian and Russian military, comfort was not priority. The ability to produce quickly cheaply and in great numbers took priority. As Stalin once said, Quantity has a quality all of its own.

THE STAHLHELM  The design of the Stahlhelm was carried out by Dr. Friedrich Schwerd of the Technical Institute of Hanover in early 1915 studies done on injuries and fatalities from shrapnel and modern warfare hazards, led to this design that provides the best protection possible. Later the Stahlhelm became a symbol for Nazi Germany however the design of modern Kevlar helmets are based off the stahlhelm design.
