    Nope, that looks to be the real McCoy.
    I've found quite a few in Danish surplus stores recently, in all sizes from S to 2XL.

    The first Danish army issued under armour shirts were khaki or brownish on the torso with only a small collar and arms in the T/99 camouflage. This newest one is many times more comfortable and offers better protection from both sun, dust and flame.

    Should you wish to build on towards a full, authentic Danish desert kit, I suggest getting the 'old' OD webbing belts, being offered on eBay for 8 USD (!) in mint, unissued condition. Get' em before I do!
    They were out 10 years ago, when all was being replaced with newer, stronger nylon belts and PLCE-equipment, but got back in vogue with the troops in Afghanistan, as the nylon was way too hot to carry.

    I recently downloaded the Danish film 'Armadillo', essentially a Danish version of 'Restrepo' - the version I saw had English subtitles so was quite understandable (they use quite a few English words in daily language anyway). Saw a few of these under armour shirts in there as well ...

    Yep the 'Armadillo' movie sparked quite a lot of controversy in Denmark, both because of the intense combat scenes, rather visceral pictures and especially troop behavior - the after battle high-fiveing and hoots of joy is understandable between combat troops just out of the heat, but Danish audiences had mainly been fed government reports that the Danish contingent was there on a peacebuilding mission, creating schooling, fresh water access and housing for the Afghan people, so most were shocked the fighting was so fierce and the school-building bit virtually non-existant.

    Up till 2010, a surprisingly large amount of Danish troops bought Sabre/XGO- and later NFM/XGO-made under armour shirts, out of their own pockets, as the issued one were not sufficiently comfy, protective or hardwearing. Now I think they've got it nailed.

    And yes, most communications and commands between Danish troops are in English, as they work closely together with British and American troops, and almost all NATO mission preparation and training is done in english.

    I have not been able to find an NTSC-coded Armadillo DVD, except for one listing on eBay: $13 shipped from China tells me it probably isn't what I'm looking for quality-wise. Laughing

    But the documentary looks very interesting. I read somewhere it is supposed to be released in the US sometime this year...

    Woo-hoo, congrats Tophe!

    It even looks in real good condition, which is not always the case.

    And yes, the Armadillo film shows Danes in German colours. The film was made in 2009, when Danish UBACS were not up to scratch. The XGO-shirts in Danish desert were few and expensive, and Tac Gear had not made a Danish, only a German desert colour under armour shirt.

    (Though I fell over two Tac Gear UBACS on German eBay a few months back, in true Danish desert. They sold immediately at 120 EUR, sadly not to me)

    have a question.

    Is the designation of the Desert Camo M84 Desert or was called something else?

    I saw a couple of those dersignation referring to the Denmark Desert Camo, but i never knew which one is the correct term

    I have seen

    M84 Desert
    M84 Tropentarn Camo
    T99 Camo
    T01 Camo

    on another note, i always misspell denmark to danmark.....it's quite confusing e when refer to a country a when refer to their people.

    By the way i love the killing 2, and the WTF danish commando that killed all the people, couldn't believe that cop is the guy all along......

    M/84 really is the name of the first Danish camouflaged uniform system. But the name is now synonymous with the green, temperate woodland pattern.
    First it was printed only on the heavier twill uniform and selected pieces of gear, but later came also a ripstop uniform in the same pattern, sometimes referred to as 'Balkan's' as it was firstly used by peacekeeping troops in Bosnia.

    From what I can gather T/99 (Test uniform 99) was the first ripstop uniform system issued in the desert pattern.

    The M/01 is the newer ripstop uniform system, issued in woodland and desert pattern both.
    I guess one should stick simply to Danish desert pattern, or specify it to M/01 desert pattern, but the T/99 might fly as well.

    You may see the German terms 'Fleck'- or 'Tropentarn'-names used to describe the Danish patterns, because they are so closely related.

    All a bit confusing, I admit - it'll be much easier now that the Mighty MultiCam completely takes over for both patterns... No
