    Nkomo's Modified DCUs

    Post by nkomo on Thu Oct 11, 2012 3:34 am

    Picked up a ton of modified DCUs and BDUs this weekend. I am just posting a few of the more exotic ones I was able to bring home. Any comments are welcome.

    1. This is a modified DCU combat shirt.

    2. This DCU was part of LARGE uniform grouping that belonged to a Major in the US Special Forces. This is the only modified DCU that I own that has a sewn blood type tape on the chest. This is a known 3rd Special Forces Group modification.

    4. Picked up two weird modified DCUs. Not only does it have sleeve pockets, but it also has a pocket on the chest that is modified with velcro. In a nut shell, it has two chest pockets on the left side. Anyone else seen this modification before?




    Odd chest pocket mod

    Modified jackets number 3 and 4 belonged to the same individual. Possible AFSOC (CCT, PJ, TACP, etc.) used.

    Here is another modified DCU I picked up recently. SEAL modified DCU with velcro square underneath the collar. This one has been used and has various stains.

    Picked up a some new modified DCU's last weekend and wanted to share a few of them with you.

    The first modified DCU I want to show you is a fairly standard modified. It has velcro above the chest pockets for name and BOS tape.

    Right sleeve pocket has a desert subdued US flag attached to it. Left hand pocket has an area for a US flag and a strip of velcro that I believe may have been for a blood type tape.

    This next modified DCU is believed to be a 3rd SFG modified as it is set up along the same lines as other known examples.

    The right pocket has a piece of glint tape attached to the pocket flap and a strip of velcro for a blood type tape. The left sleeve pocket has a piece of glint tape attached to the pocket flap via velcro.

    This next DCU was identified by Lance (kriegsmodell) as being a very early SF modified DCU and the large velcro square on the left arm is for the velcroed ""Triple Canopy" or "Tower of Power" SSI (SF/Airborne/Ranger/SF long tab)". Thanks for the information, Lance. Very Happy

    Last modified DCU for now, but this is an interesting one. Front has typical velcro strips above the chest pockets for name and BOS tapes.

    Both right and left sleeve pockets have "A+ NKA" inked on them and velcro for a US flag.
