The MC-1 is a polish copy of the Czech CM-3. It's was destined for Polish Army and Civil Defense, but adopted only by the second formation and used till end of Cold War.
It was made from olive-tan rubber. a black plastic inlet/exit valve assembly and an olive green fabric 6 point headstrap. The eyepieces are glass, held on with crimped metal and fabric. Air enters the mask via tissot tubes and exits through the exit valve/voice diaphragm. The voice diaphragm has some sort of fabric mesh covering it. Mask is relativly light and simple design. It spread after end of cold war when CD's warehouses were closed down and their assortment sold out.
Comes with two paint variants: Light green and Camo wz. 68 "Mora". Meant to be carried on shoulder belt but thanks to unnoticeable weight can lay only on chest belt. Bag consist of one bay for gas mask and filter and outside pouch for field patch.
- The MC-1 is also know as "Dzik"/"Mysz" due visual similarity to boar's/mouse's muzzle.
