Czech Republic Vz53/80

Article about: Hi Guys. Not sure why this example has been over painted with a sand coloured paint,but is an interesting example I guess, over the plain and original satin green green examples.

    Hey guys, sorry I'm late, but I have some information-
    In 1990, CSA did not desert camouflage.
    These helmet covers are hand-colored.
    different color compared to the uniform is caused by the sun or deliberate washing.

    Many thanks for the information Daniel, it's good to get other theories on these things,most appreciated.

    It resembles the Czechoslovakian Vz 60 mlok pattern camouflage. Well. Just a tiny bit, enough to make me remember it. (guy on the far right)
    But it looks very home-made / theatre made. Especially the guy in the middle (third one from the left)

    Also developed in 1985 but never adopted into Czechoslovakian service was the Vz 85 two-colour desert pattern. The brown sections of the desert pattern correspond to the brown parts of the vz 85 leaf pattern. Early versions of the desert pattern have a slightly different coloration to that eventually adopted, and the style of uniform also was also different. This became the standard desert pattern of the Czech Republic Armed Forces, and has been worn by Czech military personnel operating in desert regions since 1991.

    Hi James, many thanks for sharing this reference picture mate, it is full of detail, it is interesting to see the last guy wearing the VZ53/80 with the olive coloured cover, and of course the mysterious camo effect cover's, which in this picture are clearly all unique and not a standard camo pattern.

    Do you know unit these soldiers represent?
