When appeared steel helmet for Austrians on Italian front? I know in Russia in summer 1917, but seems seeing photographs that Austria-Hungary had steel helmets in Italy only in September 1917

Austria-Hungarys Last war 1914-198 their official history which is online. I believe mentions helmets coming into use in 1917. See the 1917 volume.

from OULK volume 6 page 54 at the end of 1916 the helmets were rare pieces of equipment found only in storm formations. Mass production began from the looks of things in early 1917
