    Here is a little more camo to look at the first one is US woodland camo BDU shirt, followed by a tricolor desert pattern BDU shirt and pants .
    The next one is a little more interesting .The next camo shirt I bought was a mystery to me when I first seen it a good will it was stamped on the inside left hand corner of the shirt with oriental block text and a military size label in english on the neck. So I bought it because I liked the pattern it is very similar to the US frog pattern developed in 1942 . I searched around on the net and could not find the exact pattern and or info about it then one day I found reference to it reading an article on us camo patterns in Vietnam . It turned out to be commercial camo pattern and is referred to as ( Duck Hunter ) It was either produced in a light brown or pale green four or five color dappled design. It was developed and Manufactured in South East Asia as well as the US in the late 50's and 60's This camoflauge pattern was adopted by the ARVN and some US Special forces and Advisors in Vietnam in the early years .As the US did not have a comparable pattern it could issue to the troops in country. It was often obtained by unit commanders and or it was supplied to ARVN troops by the CIA through one of there CIDG programs .

    This Desert DPM parka was another mystery when I purchased it I first thought it to be Dutch but it just did not look right as the swirls and the overlay pattern is not the same .So when I posted it here Dave suggested after some discussion that it was possibly Iraqi so I carried on with my search and Dave may be right. I have narrowed it down to one of three, Saudi ,Kuwaiti and or Iraqi this pattern and or variations of it were adopted by Saudi Arabia and Kuwait .When Iraq invaded Kuwait they aquired much of there military stores and used it as its own this included uniforms and bolts of cloth. I still need to do some more research to try and match the design of the parka to one of the three.

    Has the brass vents under the sleeves.Would the almost white interior in all of the posted Austrian jackets be designed into the garment as an emergency snow cover?
    Have a good one fella's

    Nice jacket Dave I was courious as to the leg ties on these the thought of them as a tankers jacket had never crossed my mind .And I have yet to see one that is not white on the inside in a pinch you could turn it inside out and use it for a snow camo jacket if you had to in the field.

    Well, not multi-camo but OD, so here goes!

    This is my US Army CVC (Combat Vehicle Crew) jacket, issued back in the mid 1980s. It is made from flame resistant fibers and is a cold weather jacket. The patch on it is the 'Blackhorse' of the 11th Armored Cavalry Regiment, my fathers' old unit. The 11th ACR patrolled the border between the GDR and FRG between 1972 - 1989 before finally pulling out of Germany in the early 1990s. I still wear it and it keeps me warm on these cold winter days. It was originally designed to wear over the tanker overalls. It was issued about the same time as the first M1 Abrams and M2 Bradleys arrived in Germany.
