    Early ANA Woodland Camouflage Uniform

    Post by nkomo on Wed Oct 24, 2012 6:20 pm

    I have had this early ANA woodland uniform since 2003 or 2004. It has been stored in a tote box and recently found it while relocating my collection.

    This appears to be a Chinese made woodland uniform that was used early on by the fledgling Afghan National Army. Uniform has no manufacturer stamps or marks anywhere I can see. Pockets are held down by cheap velcro. Uniform material is very thin and is ov very poor quality.

    Two slits have been cut into the shirt for the Afghan jump wings to be placed on. Wings are held on by a piece of plastic coated wire.

    Pants have two hip pockets and one thigh pocket.

    Cap is a standard Afghan design. It has a gold ANA badge attached to the front.

    There is a possiblity that this set may actually pre-date the ANA and could have been used by the Taliban. Was this pattern used by the fledgling ANA? Good possiblity, as the fledgling ANA was using any uniform they could possibly find.
