In July 5,1940 a new winter cap was introduced. It replaced the budenovka as the new winter headgear. The experience from the Russian war with Finland 1939-40 showed that the old cap was obsolete. It did not protect from the cold and was not suitable to wear with camouflage uniform. Another thing was that it was impossible to wear it under the steel helmet. Perhaps the new cap took inspiration from the finnish M/39 cap. This is a fur cap with flaps very similar to the soviet M/40. For top, senior, company level commanders and extended service men wore a cap made of wool and natural grey fur. But top, senior and company level commanders were allowed to have caps made of natural lambskin and grey astrakhan, at their own expense of course. Enlisted men wore caps made of cotton and imitation grey fur. A sergeant major with the engineer corps. His shapka-ushanka is the enlisted man version, but with a better quality cap star.
