The M63 "Staaldak" is a combat helmet of South African origin.[1][2][3] The M63 Staaldak replaced the British type Brodie helmets during the early 1960s, and saw extensive use during the South African Border War, which took place from 1966 to 1989 in South-West Africa. It was issued until the 1980s when it was replaced by the M87 kevlar helmet.
