    Is this Ukraine camo or what?

    Post by CollectinSteve on Mon Dec 06, 2010 2:02 am

    This uniform is apparently Ukrainian, but the ink stamp doesn't look like my other Ukrainian pieces. Can anybody positively identify it?

    Thanks!

    Steve

    It has the Soviet OTK stamp, but that's about all I know to look for on Soviet-era stuff.

    I'm not sure what the stamp means, but here's the translation if anyone does:
    SLOV'YANSK
    UVP-UTOG
    ROZMIR
    TOU 00310137-24-202

    HI Steve,
    That's a tough one but the stamp looks very much like a soviet era stamp, but don't see a date in it. So dunno

    Guys, this is a set of uniforms for the Ukrainian Army 100%. Recently, the design of stamps with all information about manufacturer completely changed. Old Soviet-type stamps are not in use.
    Commercial kits don’t have such stamps. They have inside simply small tag with the size.
    Here on the stamp we can see manufacturer,a full size, army size, type of fabric. Such information is indicated only for clothing for the army.

    Hi Sergey,

    Well, you definitely are the expert Smile

    The funny thing is I started this thread 11 months ago and this Sunday I'm going to list this uniform on eBay. Now I can do it with 100% confidence it is genuine Ukraine issue.

    What is the reason for no pockets on the legs of this uniform?

    Hi, Steve !

    No, I'm not an expert Smile But I saw much more Ukrainian camo then any one here Smile, and even wore it in the ranks.

    Why removed the pockets on his pants - I do not know. I don’t know any order or standard that would regulate the sewing of a field uniforms for the Ukrainian army. The Army actually has everything - a huge number of variations of the uniform in camouflage, "Butan" and "Dubok."

    Please note - the form is stitched along the lines of "Afghanka" (here on the forum you incorrectly call it M88) and the pockets are made with Velcro, instead of to be buttoned. Tightening cord sewn into the belt with two seams instead of 4. Well, here is still a lot of significant differences. It is possible that pockets were removed because of the cost of tissue. Or because of the order of the military command that ordered the party of this form, citing the fact that in the cockpit of the tank or BMP extra pockets will cling devices ....

    In any case, this form no longer meets military requirements.

    I can also add the fact that the best Ukrainian uniform was made for army in 1995-2000. I will try in the near future to lay out an overview of such uniform.

    P.S. I apologize for my terrible English

    Thank you for the great info. And you need not worry about your English. You speak it better than most of my Soldiers that were born in America.

    And about information - no problem ! If anyone has any questions on the uniforms of Ukraine - contact me.

    Just to add to Sergey's post - this uniform (pants having no pockets) is relatively new pattern, adopted in around 2007-2008. Someone just decided that soldiers have no need to use side pockets, so they were removed.


    New version (2010) maden using ripstop fabric and mostly provided for officers and peacekeepers (servicemen participating in operations abroad).
