SSH-36 (also known under the name "galingale") — steel helmet model 1936 year. The first steel helmet Soviet production, adopted for the red army. The means of individual protection of soldiers of the red army, was widely used in the Armed Forces of the Soviet Union during the fighting at Khasan and Khalkhin Gol, in the Polish campaign the red army in the Winter war and the initial period of the great Patriotic war. Rushed like all the other helmets with Balaclava. In the 1920-1930-ies in the red army used helmets of the "Adrian Helmet", which appeared in the Russian army in 1916, as well as helmets of the type M17 in relatively small quantities. Designed in 1929, helmet M29 and M30 — 1930, never went into production. In mid-1934 the people's Commissariat of defense of the USSR was given the task of designing a steel helmet for the army corresponding to the conditions of modern combined arms combat.

In 1935 at the Leningrad metallurgical plant began production of a new helmet model, developed by Schwartz, taken into service in 1936 and designated SSH-36. A new helmet was the original hemispherical shape with a prominent forward peak and side fields-rays. His silhouette resembled that of a German steel helmet.

SSH-36 was the first helmet designed and launched into mass production in the USSR. Baptism SSH-36 received during the war in Spain, where it supplied the Republicans and the international brigades.

In the summer of 1938 steel helmets were used during the fighting at lake Khasan. According to the analysis of the injuries to soldiers of the red army during the fighting at lake Khasan, it was found that the presence of helmets helped to reduce the mortality rate of soldiers of the red army from wounds of the skull to 5.8% (during the first world war, the mortality from wounds of the skull soldiers of the Royal army, which had no metal helmets, was 50%).

In the future, it is actively used by the red Army in the battles at Khalkhin Gol, where he received the nickname "galingale", as well as in the Winter war and the Polish campaign in 1939. However, in the course of its application had identified a significant number of disadvantages. Thus, a wide field has created "effect of a sail" and hampered the movement of troops, and large visor reduces visibility. It is for these and other reasons, in 1939 work began on the next slam, which later received the name of the SSH-39, then SSH-40[4]. Since 1940, the red army began a gradual replacement of SSH-36 helmets the new models, but the beginning of the Great Patriotic war delayed this change, which is why SSH-36 was used, mixed with the SSH-40 Soviet soldiers until about 1943.
