>Implying that that I like it because of the totenkopf

2: Prussian Lieb-Hussarian Regiment was instrumental for Prussian Success in the Austrian War of Succession and the Seven Years War. Their reputation of being line breakers is actually quite feat.

Furthermore, the only reason why they have the totenkopf on their Shako's is because they lost their leader during the Napoleonic Wars you dingus. I think the White on Black is very tasteful for a regiment as well. It reflects the colors of the nations country.

I don't understand the value of a military officer or enlisted hat or cap. Most of the time caps those hats are just used in full uniform. What is the practical military value of the cap?

It's not a chinstrap, it's for protecting the part of the hat most prone to wearing out. At least it's like that on majority of the caps.

On topic, V-cuts on Ukrainian caps are the shit.

The pickelhaube as we know it today was a fusion of both Russian and German designs of roughly the same time. Knowing this, its can be undeniably attributed to the Poles, being a mongrel race of the previous two.

What one must understand is that the Poles by the 19th century had proven to be horrendously inept at warfare and just about every other meaningful human task to the point where Poland as a country simply let itself be cucked out of existence. Thus, the Poles submitted themselves to their servile nature and committed themselves to the only task they've ever been good at: cleaning toilets. However, after frequent incidents, it became apparent that these dedicated shitter shiners were commonly being mistaken for the feces they sought to clean. Thus, many a German or Russian man would defecate upon the heads of these Poles whilst they were submerged in the latrine for cleaning.

Now any ordinary person would surely take action against any man who would defile him in such a manner. The Poles however, proved too beta to speak out on their own behalf. But to prevent the toilets from being dirtied before cleaning was complete, they began attaching spearpoints to their work helmets to deter any would-be shitters from resting their buttocks upon the Polish head. The spearpoints, however, had to be stolen from the Russians and the Germans themselves, as the Polish army supplies had consisted only of wooden clubs and basic stone tools prior to the arrival of their subjugators. These spearpoints had already been worn dull by the vicious stabbing of the Poles' forefathers, but the previous attempts at attaching stones or feathers to the helmet proved inadequate as a deterrent. This proved to be an ineffective in repellent. On the contrary, it would spark a renewed desire among Germans and Russians for using these Privy Poles for their physical pleasure, sparking later conquests of Poland in the next century to secure Poland's only notable natural resource.

it keeps a blow from coming down directly on the top of the helmet, and thus deflects the blunt force.

I always thought they were sharp spikes on top of that the hat, so you could ram into people and stab them in the stomach or headbutt and cut their nose off.

Though, seeing them up close, I think my thought's debunked.
