    Early Flora prototypes from 1993:



    The jacket has the same specification code as the Soviet standard field uniform known as the "Afghanka" adopted in 1982, but it seems the manufacturer took some liberties (read: cost-cutting) in the construction. The fabric is coarse, and is designated "3161" which I have not yet seen on any other Russian uniforms. All pockets are buttoned, including the sleeve pouches.





    One detail that seems suspicious is the flag patch; this type appeared some time in 1995, but was hand-sewn, so it does not immediately disqualify the 1993 factory date stamp on the uniform itself.



    I'm going to compare it to some other VSR patterns in my collection.

    I'm in need of a bit of a history lesson about Flora. I have a 1999 set that consists of 4 pocket jacket and 6 pocket trousers. I also have a 2005 set that consists of 6 pocket jacket and 4 pocket trousers. I'm a bit confused by this Very Happy Is there any logic to this or just the usual Russian "whatever comes out of the factory is what we wear" kind of regulations?

    I am also trying to find badging appropriate for both uniforms and am not sure that that would be or where to locate the items needed to complete mine.

    Thanks!

    Steve
