Place with Helmets: an Abandoned Military Complex Weaponry

Posted on October 18, 2014 by tim

Ok, hoping you all are having a good weekend, so now let’s see the abandoned artillery weaponry located pretty close to Moscow. This place is pretty much in good form. Alex, who visited this place, says its known as “army unit with helmets” among his friends – the men who are eager to visit different places like this. It’s called this because…

besides helmets there are other different things that this place was dealing with. For example, a separate building devoted to the production and testing of Soviet night vision goggles. Why a place with helmets, and what else have they got besides helmets? Let’s see inside:

    Wow ! These helmets sell for at least $25 right now in the U.S. as collectables. Reminds me of some old U.S. abandoned gas mask in the 70’s….a piled up conversation piece….now long gone and would be worth a small fortune today….these helmets have a history,a time and place where they come from…..maybe a certificate of authenticity $10 more ??? I want one !

      Back in the mid-70’s I worked at a gun shop in Fostoria, OH. Boss did mail order surplus and bought enough WW2 Italian Army helmets to fill a 2 car garage and then some. One screaming-hot day, I was unloading a van full through a basement window when he called smoke break, and passed a bottle of ice-cold beer out to me. Nice guy, he was!

    I find it amazing how many buildings (especially military) are just left like this after the collapse of the Soviet system.

    I would love to take a few items for display at home.

    Thanks to Alex and English Russia

    Why have all the helmets got a big hole in the top of them?

  7. Borce says:

    Because they were shooting and calibrating optical sights on them.

  8. Barrie says:

    Nobody celebrates a weapon on a round surface, you use a flat target. More likely they were testing the helmets.

  9. Adrian says:

    The hole is to mount the night vision googles.

    I wonder how much of this old tech gets taken out of the buildings and sold. i am wondering because there is some I am interested in purchasing.
