    The principal difference with the Yugoslavia lizard pattern is in the drawing of the lizard head

    Interesting topic!

    Here are some photos of Bosnian Serb uniforms.

    First the "officers green tiger" as worn by General Ratko Mladic:







    And some photos showing General Mladic wearing it:







    And some photos of another green tiger used by the Bosnian Serb Army:







    The label shows that it was produced in Brcko 1995:

    Just a heads up: none of the uniforms displayed above were made or worn during communist times. They are all post-1992 examples. All of the green and grey tigers were made in the Serbian enclaves and the only official Serbian entity to continue wearing tiger was the federal police and their blue/purple uniforms.

    Yes, these were made in 1995 By company "Mladost" in Brcko. These were government issued as they have the proper tags and werent home made or privately purchased or made. Thanks for sharing!

    Sorry, didn't mean to sound so authoritative, I'm definitely not an expert on Serbian uniforms.

    But have you ever seen any Yugoslavian-made tiger uniforms?

    Here is the original Yugoslavian grey tiger, worn by MUP operational troops in the 1980s in relatively small numbers. Has some very interesting features not found in any other JNA or police uniforms with details below:

    Long-sleeve field shirt from the same uniform, however lightly used:





    And the assault vest:

    Thanks! This was the first time I've seen such a uniform and vest as well.

    You will notice that it is different from "war-time" production jackets: there are 4 pockets on the jacket and it does not have a sleeve pocket like later jackets. And even more strange is the fact that the pockets are not buttoned:

    Wow... I'm hoping I didn't sell my unissued trousers! One came into my collection and I wasn't sure what it was and might have sold or traded it.

    There's a shirt in this same fabric that came up on eBay out of Thailand for a while. Must have had a dozen of them. They were two pocket long sleeve shirts with wrist tabs similar to what's seen on jackets. In fact we had a thread about this here somewhere. Nobody could quite figure out what it was or what it wasn't. Ring any bells? I'll see if I can find a picture of one somewhere.

    Don't recall seeing any interesting Yugo uniforms from the various Thai sellers, I monitor their listings weekly.

    Would definitely love to see a photo of what you are referring to.

    And one more grey Balkan "tiger" uniform, most likely made by Bosnian Serbs during the war, who somehow inherited the Yugoslavian pattern.

    The features are very similar to the Yugoslav Air Force's technician's uniform:
