All Bundeswehr participants are required to have an issue German helmet with cover. You may choose to use either the M1 style steel pot helmet or the later Kevlar helmet. If you cannot find a correctly sized original German helmet you may substitute a US M1 steel pot or a US PASGT helmet as long as it is fitted with the correct Flectarn pattern cover.
