I found this tunic and trousers and cap at a market yesterday. what i have found is post war. but early post war
The cap was not with the tunic i found, it came separate.
The stamps in the tunic and trousers, im not shore about.
and also the badges.
there was no information on these items from the seller.
As i dont have any USSR items in my collection, it was nice to find somthing.
if possible could someone be able to tell me what i have found. thank you mark

This is 70s/80s vintage - at least 30 years postwar...
The pilotka is clearly dated 1975.
If you would take a close up of the tunic's markings and post them here, we may be able to date it also. The badges seem correct for this.
Fellow collectors are NOT adversaries to be bested...

thank you richie for your comments. i will try to get some good images of the markings. when i can.
That would be great if you are able to date these items.
I somtimes came across stuff. it would be nice to know little bit about USSR items.
The is the M69 uniform. Here configurated for a motorised infanterie soldier
Nice one with the soldier number. Typical of the cold war and begining of the Afghanistan war
Thanks bruno. im impressed with it to. Ive never came across Soviet items like this before. He had a 1984 date stamped tankers padded helmet to but I dident pick that up he wanted 95 dollers for it. I wasent shore if that was way to high. In price.
heres some close up images of the stamps on the tunic and trosers. cheers mark.
This is a very typical piece of uniform.
It was created after the Pague events in 1968 in order not to dilute the positive image of the "great patriotic" soldier which uniform didn't really changed till then.
Equipement are quite easy to find and you can easily do a nice manequin. The most difficult is already done.
Concerning the tank helmet, it of course depend of the models,but if it is from the same period of time it is far too high.
All the best
Tunic and trousers are dated 1979 .
thanks dom. just need to get a helmet and some boots. and i think it will look good.
