This photo is very interesting cause the O2 mask connected to the black Toptex seems to be a Quick-Donning MBU-5/P prototype !

you always have the eye for the detail, these things are lost on me, I know nothing about masks, helmets, its something I must look into in the future. Thanks for posting.
All the best
