    camouflages ID

    Post by elsasser on Tue Apr 17, 2012 9:13 am

    Hello,

    I need your help to identify some camouflages.
    All those uniforms are issued from the balkans war and especially from serbs troops. A lot of foreign camouflage canvas was used to make uniforms for local militias.

    This first overall camouflage looks like russian TTsKO pattern :





    Another camouflage :





    Pants and jacket in a kind of woodland pattern :







    Shirt in tiger pattern, maybe greek :





    Thank's

    Hello,

    No label except sometimes the label for the size.
    All those uniforms are serbs, certainly issue from little manufacture (except the overall which was manufactured in large quantities) for serbs troops. It explains why there isn't any label. Most of the camouflages used to make those uniforms comes from foreign countries (except maybe the camouflage of the shirt, it is maybe just a variation of JNA tiger pattern (?) but it looks close of one of the greek tiger pattern). I would like to know the origin of those camouflages.

    Here another camouflage to identify, it is the hood of a serbian local made overall for VRS (bosnian serb army). The camouflage looks close of an irish prototype camouflage of the 80s.



    Thank's for your help!

    That orangeish woodland set its probably a chinese commercial. They do like to save on velcro as in those pockets Laughing

    Russians also close their sleeve pockets this way... Smile

    The TTsKOish coverall looks really nice, did you already compare the pattern to a "normal" TTsKO one?

    Here the little sister of the serb woodland jacket, it's exactly the same but in tiger camouflage :



    I've already compare the overall with TTsKO and variants but I haven't found the same coloration. No

    I've seen that TTsKO coverall worn by Serb militias in several period military magazines. I'd love to know more about its origin myself.

    But the pattern is a match?

    I'm pretty sure that I've seen such a TTsKO-coloration already, but I think it wasn't a Russian but an Ukrainian uniform.
