    Since the explosion of the financial crisis in 2008 as well as the impending roll up of the Afghan ISAF mission, these armies are all disappearing rather rapidly, too, which is quite sad. This generalization applies to the Austrians as well, who are cutting their force structure, their budget, and much of what made the Bundesheer a fine thing. No less true for the Bundeswehr, as well, which is rapidly shrinking to the size of the Reichswehr.
    damit, basta.

    Without wanting to sound a note of pissant ism, I would subject said tunic to extra scrutiny to its authenticity, as such a figure in the Austrian military is super rare.
    damit, basta.
