The M74 is a licensed copy of the German M65. It was partially replaced in service in by the M85 however the M74 is still in production.


The mask is made of an olive green chemically resistant neoprene rubber featuring two rounded triangular eyepieces, a round exhale valve, an orinasal cup that prevents mask from fogging, and a STANAG 4155 threaded inlet located on the chin of the mask. The mask was issued with a CF-4, or nowadays with a CFS filter and a vinyl haversack which is attached to the wearer's belt and slung over the shoulder. Some masks were even issued with a hose which connected the mask to its filter.

Special variants: Edit

There was also a special version of the M74 where a rubber hood was sealed on to the mask, intended for use along with NBC/CBRN suits
