    "The German Army is the perfectly adapted, perfectly running Machine. The difference is that the Germans are organised with a view to War...with the cold, hard, practical and business-like purpose of winning victories."
    G.W. Steevens - The Daily Mail (1897)

    The point here being that the Austrian army has a large militia component. The Austrians also recently voted to retain conscription, unlike the Germans and most other NATO countries. Austria is not in NATO, of course, but is highly engaged in foreign missions via the UNO, as well as the EU, and in NATO affiliation of Partnership for Peace.

    The Austrians are inherently conservative, but they have excellent field equipment, which is the envy of the Germans, for instance. They still keep the olive drab uniform as a field uniform as near as I can tell, or for the bulk of troops. Do look at the website I included, as it contains all the uniforms.

    Here is a link to the evolution of the uniforms. The camouflage uniform is from the epoch of the foundation of the BH in the mid 50s.

ID:	545542An image of the camouflage uniform ca. 1957. It looks as if based on that of the Waffen SS of the last gasp, just as the Bw did in the 1980s.
