    Experimental Soviet TTsKO/Butane which later evolved into the standardized TTsKO:



    Also pre-Soviet Afghan forces wore a "duck hunter" style uniform, I doubt I'll ever find it.

    For what it is worth,

    Here is my 2 cents:

    I have at least 12 of the Holy Ones on my I wish list, more if the different French TAPs are considered

    So, In no particular order of preference:

    Finn M05
    Finn Digi Snow Pattern
    San Marco Desert, 1st Pattern
    Consubin Desert,Pink, or Ginestra
    Italian Air Force Vegecam
    Swiss TAZ90(?) Desert
    Spanish M62 Fall Pattern
    Viet Brushstroke
    Any WWII German Pattern
    Any WWII/Postwar Dennison
    French TAP Lizard Patterns( emphasis on early mods.)
    And last, but certainly not least, FUMACO

    These pieces make me drool............rip...

    I like collecting items from Russia's "Survival Corps".  

    Here's a vest I found in a powerpoint slide that was sent to me in 2010 (vest bordered in yellow).



    Ostensibly powerpoint was for TV and Movie types who wanted military gear for props.  The owners of the gear were well supplied by the MVD and FSB and had some really wonderful stuff.

    The vest in question is a very early version of an SRVV Chestrig sewn on request of Vympel starting in 1997.  The production versions used large fastex buckles on the chest, but the variant above has metal clasps.  Although the photo is pretty lousy quality, the rig was sewn in a fabric referred to as "Korean Woodland".  Thanks to some astute eyes over at Red-Alliance, it was confirmed that the pattern (and probably the fabric), are in fact from South Korea.

    I'm interested in all things "Korean Woodland" that were sewn in Russia, so I would really love to have this rig.
