    I'm coming late to the tar and feathering party Very Happy

    Yeah, lots of things wrong with this uniform as mentioned. I spotted a couple straight off, such as the double COL rank and the Delta Force tab already mentioned.

    The foreign jump wings, however, would be odd NOT to see on a highly qualified SF soldier of any significant rank. The thing that complicates verification is the badges used might not be "real" in the country that issued them. The one on this uniform is absolutely not Bundeswehr issue, but that doesn't mean it isn't "real" for a US soldier (despite the uniform being a fake). I have no idea why the wreath would be blue as the standard colors are Bronze, Silver, and Gold. However, like I said, all bets are off as far as I know.

    Ah, and another problem I spotted but had to double check the regs (AR 670-1) to confirm. Only THREE tabs are allowed on a uniform, regardless of how many the soldier is authorized to wear (which would rarely exceed 3):

    Wear of three special skill tabs. Soldiers may wear the full-color Sapper, Ranger, and Special Forces tabs together on Army uniforms.


    Some more info on Tabs from the regs:

    The Sapper, Ranger, Special Forces and President’s Hundred tabs are the only tabs authorized for permanent wear. Tabs such as Airborne, Honor Guard, Mountain, and Pershing are authorized for temporary wear only. These tabs are considered an integral part of the shoulder sleeve insignia and soldiers are not authorized to wear them when they are reassigned from the organization that prescribed wear of the shoulder sleeve insignia with tab.


    On the Army green service uniform, the Special Forces tab is centered on the left shoulder sleeve, 1/2 inch from the shoulder seam, the Ranger tab is centered 1/8 inch below the Special Forces tab, and the Sapper tab is centered 1/8 inch below the Ranger tab. The current unit shoulder sleeve insignia is centered 1/4 inch below the Sapper tab. On the utility uniforms and the cold weather jackets, personnel wear the subdued tabs in the same positions as on the Army green service uniform (see fig 29-60).

    Guys, I'm sure Steve is now fully aware that it's most likely a dream piece -- is there any reason to keep breaking his balls over it? Neutral

    Because it's fun Very Happy

    Seriously though, I think Steve realized from the start that it was likely (to some extent) a fake.

    Personally, I don't think he quite got the idea yet. Hey Steve, its a fake, so you can take the uniform off, and quit dancing around corners yelling "hands up suka foo".
