    Question about italian woodland camo

    Post by Mellon on Fri Dec 23, 2016 5:26 pm

    Hi everyone.

    Does somebody knows the real name of the italian Woodland uniform?

    I saw sometime Uniforme Da Combattimento Policroma mod 92 and I wonder if it is the normal appellation.

    Thanks.

    Best Regards

    Mellon

    HI!

    Hope my answer will be still useful to you.

    You're right! That's the right name.
    Also the desert-type uniform was called with the same id. so they used to call it "Somalia" by its largest use during Restore Hope

    Correct, but let's not forget that there is M90 and M92 for both woodland and desert. I presume the earlier M90 was called Uniforme Da Combattimento Policroma mod 90?

    The major difference is the M90 jacket has no arm pockets, the M92 has a pocket on each sleeve. The chest of the M92 also has a horizontal loop on the right breast. IIRC the trousers are the same.

    Hi Steve!

    You're right! I forgot that.

    I believe you mean this, don't you?



    Never undestand what is its real name, I know it was used by paras troops for a few years




    (PS: firsrt pic: they are the "Squadrone Eliportato Carabinieri Cacciatori", a Carabinieri's anti-mafia corp. Second pic: col moschin)


    Happy Easter to all! Very Happy

    No, that's the airborne uniform. I think it is M87.

    Hmm. Maybe there is no M90 Woodland after all? I checked my collection and I don't seem to have one.

    For desert, however, there absolutely is a M90. It is identical to the M92 except it has no pockets on the sleeves and no loop over the right breast. Maybe some other minor differences in the jackets. I think the trousers are the same except that for M90 the pockets are closed with hidden buttons and for M92 it is velcro.

    AAAWW Yes!

    I've already heard something like this but I don't know other... even the correct name.

    Yes, the one in my pics was only for paratroops units and only used for a few years.
    If it will be useful they sometimes use to call it "Monteromano", wich is the name of a place where they used to do trainings... but never understood the link...

    Greetings
