    The labels look nothing like Bundeswehr labels. Format, size, method of application, and lots of missing data show this is not German kit. I am also unaware of any use of non-Flecktarn camo for flight suits. Even informally.

    Yet it's unusual to see "faked" items in coveralls since the market for such items is poor. So I don't know what to think of it.
