The GP-2 (Russian: Гражданский Противогаз — "Civilian Gas Mask") was a civilian filter issued with various face pieces during the Second World War. The children varian is called D-6.

The filter[edit | edit source]

The GP-2 filter is a cylindrical metal filter containing the various blocking substances. It was fixed to the face piece at the chin.

Face pieces[edit | edit source]

The face pieces were mainly made by local craftsmen and fit to the filter.

The exhale valve, similar amongst most masks, was kept in a metal cage and was made up of two rubber discs.

Sh-2 (Ш-2)[edit | edit source]

The Sh-2 was made of rubberized cloth and had the exhale valve at the side. The eye pieces could be the one of the Sh-1 face piece or just glued ones.

Sh-3 (Ш-3)[edit | edit source]

The Sh-3, identical in setup to the Sh-2, was cheaper to make and was less sturdy. The eye pieces could be glued or crimped.

ShM-1 (ШМ-1)[edit | edit source]

The ShM-1 was a helmet style face piece and had the exhale valve in the front.
