    Possibly. It's probable that the design is not right for the type of fighting they do. The OR-201 is a combat helmet of Israeli origin. It has also been used by many militaries of the world. The Mitznefet (Hebrew: מִצְנֶפֶת‎) is a helmet covering for the infantry helmet used by the Israeli Defense Forces as of 1994. It is considerably larger than the helmet, giving the impression of a militarised chef's hat. The purpose of the floppy helmet cover is to break up the distinctive outline of a helmeted head and thus assist in the camouflage of the wearer. It was originally adapted in the 1990s for guerrilla warfare in the wood and bush land of south Lebanon, later adding a two sided camo, one for desert and one for woodland terrain. The Mitznefet is easily removable, and can be attached to the helmet while folded.

    No, it's because the damn thing is seriously defective.

    No. It's not true. Israeli forces use a variety of CCV and infantry helmets which have the same basic design. You'd do well to remember that the Israeli Air Force flew ME-109's for years, and the army armed itself primarily with German small arms in the first few years of the existence of the nation.

    Not sure how it would reseemble nazis. That style of helmet was used by the Germans during World War 1. Back then called the Puckle (I think that's how it's spelled) or nicked name the Kiaser Helment. It offers general good protection including vital area's in the back of the head.
