    Australian 3 Color Desert OPFOR Uniform

    Post by CollectinSteve on Thu Jun 04, 2009 12:04 am

    I have two sets of rare Australian 3 Color Desert camouflage, first introduced during Gulf War 1 and later adopted for use as the uniform for OPFOR. The cloth and uniform are of Australian manufacture. The jacket pictured below has homemade collar insignia sewn on the lapel (hard, flat plastic colored with black marker) and the brassard for the "7th Kamarian Infantry Division", which is the name of the fictional OPFOR unit. All items I have were manufactured in 1995.

    An interesting thing is all four items have green tags with MOD marks and then white tags, also with MOD marks, sewn on top. All of the important information is the same, however the phone number of the manufacturer is different and the white tag has wash instructions. Apparently one of those differences required new labels to be sewn.

    Enjoy!

    Steve

    I have a British made UAE set made from the same cloth. The desert print is smaller than the US Army print , bit like woodland is to ERDL.

    Yeah...It was odd for me to see the double labels...as the white one was worn out and lo & behold hiding behind it was the green one...I had never come across anything like that before....
