Description and photos
MC-1 was designed for Civil Defence and for industrial protection for use with filtering appliances or open circuit breathing apparatuses. They were sold as a standalone article or in kits of apparatuses such as: AZ-2M, AJ-3M, AS-3M or AT-4M.
These masks were produced in two colors: green (earlier) and gray (later). Later masks had few improvements - an additional plastic part near the exhale valve and like on newer MK-212/1 - additional lense reinforcing rings.
This, and a second one mask is quite unusual - it sports a ML's / Ma-1's facepiece. Is really elastic.
