Soviet-era Gas Mask

Now we know why McCarthy was scared of the Reds. The neighbor lady, Mrs. Krasner's, son Aleks probably poked his head in the fat, red-faced bastard's window one morning, a la Dennis the Menace, wearing one of these. I'd bring down Orson Welles too if someone scared me with one of these Overseer masks.

This ghoulish, officer's version has a built-in voice transmitter for giving orders. (The enlisted man's version didn't have one since they only needed to follow orders.)

You should have seen Khrushchev's. It had teeth.
