- Originally used by the USSR for NBC (Nuclear, Biological, Chemical) protection, the GP-5 gas mask holds a significant place in history. Since then, it has gained popularity in popular culture, making appearances in video games and films. Its widespread recognition is due to its affordability, as it is the most produced gas mask ever. The GP-5 is a straightforward yet effective design, providing comprehensive protection for the entire head. Equipped with a single metal ringed filter, it ensures safe breathing in hazardous environments.
- The primary purpose of the GP-5 gas mask was to safeguard against toxic, radioactive substances, as well as bacterial agents. It provided vital protection for the respiratory system, eyes, and face. Produced between 1961 and 1989 (with some production in 1990), the GP-5 mask underwent modernization to address identified shortcomings. The modernized version, known as the GP-5M, offered improved functionality and performance.
- With an astonishing production quantity surpassing the population of the Soviet Union, the GP-5 gas mask found its place in various industries and civil defense shelters. It continues to be utilized for training purposes in life safety classes, serving as a reliable respiratory protective equipment (RPE). However, modern gas mask equipment has gradually replaced it, along with occasionally more advanced Soviet-era gas masks.
