Default Cap

43 Central Experimental Manufacturing Combine, Moscow

That makers diamond was used in the 1970s. If I remember correctly they switched to the hard plastic visors around 1974. The cap would have been worn by an artillery/tank officer.

Why only armoured troops? The caps with black velvet were worn by very many troops in the Soviet Army. These are all engineering, demining and artillery troops and many others.
The colors of the velvet on the headgear matched the colors tabs of the loops.

Better pics are needed for the logo of the maker. However, just from these pics I would guess it is the Central Experimental Manufacturing Combine Moscow factory. But again, better pics are needed to be certain.
