    This is an Afghan Commando soft shell jacket with direct embroidered ANA Commando insignia. Tag says it is made by Blackhawk!, but I have my doubts. Chest area has place for rank, name tape, and organizational tape.

    That being said, I am not sure if this is for the ANA Commandos or a US Special Forces Advisor. The rank square is more the size you see on the ACU rather than the longer rectangular ones you see on Afghan uniforms. Any thoughts?

    Do you know if these babies are imported or locally made and are the tags still readable, or just like in the picture are looooong gone.
