US Army Water Canteen NBC Caps





The M17 Protective Mask is a series of gas masks that were designed and produced in 1959 (as a replacement of the M-9 gas mask) to provide protection from all types of knownchemical and biological agents present.
The M-17 was issued to troops in the Vietnam war, and was standard issue for the U.S Army until it was replaced by the M-40 in the late 1980s and early 1990s

These protective masks have inbuilt systems that facilitate communication, a tube for drinking water (A1 & A2), and a pair of outserts to protect eye lenses and prevent fogging.



M17 - first. obsolete.M17A1 - added drinking tube to consume water while wearing. obsolete.
M17A2 - a smaller size was introduced, so they changed the name. that is the only difference. current issue.
the drinking tube was added to the M17A1 in 1966.
the name was changed to M17A2 in 1983.
the drinking tube was around long before the A2 was.
