    special Austrian Army textiles (not item BUT color)

    Post by Michi on Thu Feb 02, 2017 2:39 pm

    At my parents' house I have a Rumpelkammer (~ boxroom / junk room) actually full of old books and magazines, BUT also a few bags of some
    equipment of the Austrian Armed Forces of different periods of time.
    (I have to say that until the membership of this forum it was completely forgotten -out of sight, out of mind.)



    The following items are special and rare in terms of color

    Feldkappe, schwer in Feldgrau (~ field cap, cold weather in field grey)





    Stamp: HBA 1975 -- beginning of implementation of 75er equipment in RAL 7013 brown grey




    Fliegerschwinge in blau (~ flyers wing in blue) [flyers wings (in grey; or in silver; or in gold) show membership of Austrian Air Force]

    According the documentation/history department of the Austrian Army Agency for clothing and personal equipment this cold weather field cap in field-grey was produced for a few month in a very low 3 digit number for the so called Drillich (~ drill dress) AFTER the implementation of the Anzug 75.
    NEVERTHELESS the textiles is NOT of a drill fabric. It is the same as the Feldkappe, schwer [Anz 75] (~ field cap, cold weather) or the Winterkappe, opalgrün (~ cold weather cap in opal green {= RAL 6026}).

    Of the flyers wing in blue nothing is known, yet.
