    Odd Italian camo variation

    Hi, I'm not very familiar with Italian camo but I know this one is Italian because of the stars and the tag but not sure who used it and what variation this is. I looked up some info and found that this pattern was used until 1992 and then adopted new camo, but this one has a tag with a date of 1996 so Im a bit confused. Here are the pics:

    This is the Marines (BSM/COMSUBIN) version, which was used longer than the Army version. The Army probably started dropping it around 1990 as that is when the M90 Woodland uniform started, with the M92 as a follow up.

    This jacket was never used by the Army. It was used by the Navy only. The Army pattern and cut is different!
    San Marco used it, but also SDI (Navy base guards) and possibly Comsubin although I am not sure of that.
    I can tell you that these jackets were used until mid 90's at least if not longer. Later on San Marco was issued with some goretex woodland jackets.
    They originally have a wool detachable liner and you can find them in different shades of the same pattern.
    I have mine and a few other jackets here. But basically they look the same. I don't see the cuffs of your jacket, but if it was for San Marco, it should have the patches there
