The R.S. 37 is a cheaper variant of the P.C. 35 made by Spasciani. It is the 16th gas mask approved by the S.C.M. (Servizio Chimico Militare, chemical military service) on 1 march 1937.
Mask overview Edit
The face piece was made with very cheap stamped rubber. It has two "unbreakable" glass eye pieces that sport a metal ring for putting on anti-fogging lenses. The exhale valve is in the front and it's covered by a removable lid for protection. The filter intake is at the bottom. The inhale valve is a rubber disc just above the filter intake. The mask uses the standard italian five straps system, four of which are elastic.
The mask was provided with a Spasciani civilian filter.
The maks came in the standard T.35-style satchel, with a civilian Spasciani filter, an instructional pamphlet and a small card box with anti-fogging lenses and a spare exhale valve.
