"Schuberth 826 preserial helmet. Before Schuberth got the contract for the new Swiss combat helmet to replace the old RBR helmet a troop test was made.
Schuberth sent this type of helmet for the first test. It is a 826 shell with ballistic equipment pollards. The pollards replace the standard bolts so you can attach a visor or something else.
The suspension is fixed in the helmet with the Quick Exchange System (QES).  If you push inside the helmet on the end of red plastic stripe you can remove  it. It allows the soldier to dismantle the suspension and strap in seconds. The QES is present in the Swiss issue helmets."
