Overview of the American gas mask M-50


What gas masks are used by members of the U.S. Army? This question is answered by a former Ukrainian soldier, who, having taken the oath of the US Army, now acts as a blogger. Rudenko, who had previously published dozens of videos about serving in the U.S. Army, now decided to present a video on technology and ammunition. One of these videos is dedicated to an individual means of protection - a gas mask M-50 (JSGPM M-50) or M-51 (the difference is who the gas masks are for).


JSGPM M-50 - the main means of protection, which is used in the US Army in the presence of chemical, bacteriological, radiation threats.
This gas mask is used in all types and arms of the United States troops.

A gas mask, which is a plastic mask with filters, is worn on the left foot in a special bag. The bag is attached to the belt and thigh of the left leg with plastic carabiners.

There is an indicator window in the filter that allows you to evaluate the use of this filter in the event of a gas attack.

There is a pipe on the gas mask that allows a fighter to drink water from an army flask so as not to remove the protective equipment.

    There are good videos with Razvedos and Rudenko in the format of questions and answers about the American and Russian armies.
    Correctly and without politics, two pros about the army.
    Py.Sy. Razvedos - was a reconnaissance commander and on many issues in the subject.

    Gas masks with panoramic glasses are not suitable for a real war, firstly the dimensions and weight, secondly, a design with a plurality of straps with adjustments and valves that fly off from the first blow. It’s convenient to shoot or disperse the crowd on the ground, and in a stressful situation you won’t even get it right the first time.

      Gas masks with panoramic glasses are not suitable for a real war
      there is not glass, but flexible plastic. If when handling old models, one inaccurate movement was enough to break a fragile eyepiece, bend the membrane or break the harness, then modern gas workers have much better performance
      first dimensions and weight
      Both the dimensions and weight of modern gas masks are less. The very process of dressing such a gas mask is not particularly different from the Russian standard No. 1 "GASES".

    A professional puts on a gas mask for a while, with his eyes closed in any situation. Military or just a chemist - it does not matter. The straps never interfere: the main thing is to fill your hand. Let me remind you that the Soviet gas masks GP-4u have the same design.
