The M85 is a licensed copy of the German M65. It partially replaced the M74 in service however the 74M is still in production while the M85 isn't.

Mask overview Edit

The mask is made of an olive green chemically resistant neoprene rubber featuring two rounded triangular eye pieces, 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 wearers belt and slung over the shoulder. Some masks were even issued with a hose which connected the mask to its filter.

M85 comes with a hydration system and improved straps.
