    Yep.
    Actualy that is the contrakt date. Exact production date could be 1 or 2 yrs later depending on the term of the contrakt.

    DPSC is different. They always use this short contract no.

    There's always been a duplicative system for procurement. There's the standard method (which has a 3 or 4 digit prefix, changed over time), and then there's this way. I don't know exactly what the technical paper-pushing difference is, but as I understand it the latter method is a direct purchase by the agency responsible for clothing soldiers. That name has changed over time too.

    If I'm wrong, someone please correct me because this has always confused me a little!

    Not rare but not easy to get either. Big sizes are not so common anymore.
