    Default Swiss Jacket M70

    Here's an example with a grey brown dominant background colour '80 manufactured - see difference with the helmet cover background colour.

    Must say these are a real hard core jacket! more so than any other design in my camo collection.

    Note the "riri" zipper (you TR collectors will be familiar with) and the oddball elbow reinforcement - part gloss, part not!!! not like the Swiss!!

    How many camo patterns out there that incorporate 7 colours?

    The camo is so "good" I can't even make out the details (pockets, etc.) on the jacket itself! LoL

    Definitely 80's hi fashion.

    But a nice jacket!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    I've seen these but assumed they were Art School-dyed or similar....'hadn't appreciated there were variants of the four fruit pyjamas! I've seen part "gloss" trousers too....very strange cloth combo

    They are heavy duty mate. I've got one as well, mainly as it's an interesting descendant of the SS Liebermuster camouflage pattern. The Bundeswehr in 1955 briefly brought it back as a trial in the European Army Project (EVG) but later it was rejected. Below is example of the prototype EVG jacket

    And the original Liebermuster 1945 tunic

    The Swiss knew a good camo pattern when they saw it, and the rest is history. In landscapes with distinctive autumn colours it seems very effective but I understand the red also was a nod to the red brick colours of the urban battlefield in 1945.

    I will, but it's in storage at present. From memory it's a 1970's model. But I do have the light weight TAZ83 jacket handy, which I wear sometimes. Seems to be dated 1987. The heavy original jacket, as shown above was the TAZ57/70. I'll post some pics of the light weight one first.

    As mentioned some pictures of my TAZ83 lightweight jacket and trousers.

    The Swiss have updated the pattern further and there is a TAZ90 revision.

    Extra shots of the two patterns, they are both markedly different. Left '71, right '80 made.

    If you have examples, please post them up.
