    Danish Uniform Designations and Documentation

    Post by CollectinSteve on Wed Nov 18, 2015 2:00 am

    This is an attempt to document the basic uniform designations and details of the Danish military.  It is starting out as a summary of this great thread here:

    http://iacmc.forumotion.com/t9840-my-m84-stuff

    I have used official Danish T and M numbers that are known, but I added "standard" collecting nomenclature to distinguish the different purposes of the uniform.  Specifically that Temperate is smooth cloth in green colors, Tropical is ripstop in green colors, and Desert is ripstop in desert colors.  1st Model indicates the first major version within a designation (in this case M/01) and 2nd Model indicates the second major version within the same designation.  This allows collectors an easier way to know which uniform is which with less chance of confusion:

    T/78 - combat and garrison trousers and jacket
    M/84 1st Model - combat and garrison trousers and jacket

    T/99 Tropical - also known as "Balkan" type. Made in Ripstop cloth
    T/99 Desert - 1st model desert
    M/01 1st Model Tropical - production version of T/99. I do not think there are differences
    M/01 1st Model Desert - same as above

    2003 Trials Tropical - M/01 Tropical with added arm pockets and other features.  Definitely official Danish MoD and dated 2003.  This appears to be the trials version of what became the M/01 2nd Model.

    M/84 2nd Model - similar to standard M/84 but with arm pockets as with M/01 2nd Model jackets and similar trousers.  I have one dated 2007
    M/01 2nd Model Lightweight  - similar to 2003 Trials, but simplified and in smooth cloth.  I have one dated 2007
    M/01 2nd Model Tropical  - same as above, but in ripstop.  I have one dated 2007
    M/01 2nd Model Desert - same as above, but in desert colors.  I have pictures of one dated 2006

    M/11 ALM - same cut as M/84 2nd Model but in Multicam colors
    M/11 LET - same as M/01 but in smooth cloth

    Following this are examples of these uniforms. If you have an example of a particular uniform that has not been pictured yet, please post along with the corresponding name from the above list and the year of manufacture.

    If you have an example of one that is already pictured, please don't repost as that just makes this page take longer to load and might confuse people.  Plus, I think most people on this Forum have at least one M/84 so we don't need to see more than one Smile  If you have an example that is already shown, but the date is different, please note the type and date.  There might be some interesting info to glean from this.

    T/99 or M/01 Tropical - nicknamed "Balkan" as it was introduced due to Danish soldiers serving on the Balkans - in Bosnia and Kosovo.

    2003 model trials tropical - not issued in any quantities. Has a number of features that distinguish it from the Balkan uniform (T/99 and M/01) - eg. holes in the pockets to let out water and no "Canadian buttons" on the pockets
