    A ton of this stuff was brought in by Joe Francis in the 1990s. It is made in West Germany and nobody I know of can give any background information on it. Other than it was never used by Spanish military. There are four known pieces in this camouflage:

    1. Four pocket shirt
    2. Four pocket jacket
    3. Trousers
    4. French style swallow tail hat

    You can see a picture of the hat in my collection here:



    It is a very interesting camo pattern, but one washing and it fades pretty quickly. I've got a used set on hand that I'm parting with.

    Now I have to double check if my jacket has the button on hood! I don't think it does Sad

    Interesting, but I think I recall a discussion elsewhere that it was strictly a private market venture, not used by any Spanish forces.

    100% commercial is the only way to think of this stuff. No ties to military at all, not even as "trials" or otherwise. Not until someone comes up with hard evidence Very Happy
