    This is a Portuguese m/964 short sleeved shirt, this type of shirt was added to the m/964 pattern sometimes during the 70's and its very similar to the long sleeved predecessor. The cut and style was used in 2000 using DPM pattern to make the "Timor" and "Africa" models and persisted until 2003.

    Portuguese early type m/964 combat cap. It has the early "red lizard" color schemed and has more stitching lines in the visor.

    Here its a comparison between the various Portuguese NATO 2003 and variant patterns:

    1 - NATO 2003 and first Portuguese Arid/Desert (Air Force)

    The NATO 2003 pattern was rotated 90º and the brown shapes were eliminated to create the Arid version.

    2 - First Portuguese Arid/Desert (Air Force) and second Portuguese Arid/Desert (Marines)

    The patterns are similar but the marines version its a bit darker in the sand colors and lighter in the darker color.

    3 - First Portuguese Arid/Desert (Air Force) and third Portuguese Arid/Desert (Army)

    The third pattern had the shapes inverted and the color shapes displaced.

    Recently got this pair of trousers used by Portuguese forces in Afghanistan. The camouflage pattern is the second one issued and a derivative of the first Air Force pattern. The cut and style has some interesting differences from the more common patterns that follow the general NATO 2013 layout.

    The pocket closure system is different, instead of press buttons and central button with loop we have a concealed button and central velcro. The fly has zipper closure instead of buttons and instead of a top button closure in the trousers with have two sets of hooks.

    These differences are not field modifications and the trousers were made with these in mind. The tag also has a size letter instead of number.

    I'm still trying to discover more about the distribution of these trousers and date, I'm also trying to get the other pieces of the same lot to complete one uniform set of this variant.

    Update on the trousers, these were issued in 2012 to a Portuguese GNR (Guarda Nacional Republicana, National Republican Guard) sergeant that went on mission to train the Afghan security forces.

    always kind of partial to Portuguese stuff especially Angola Mocambique related items. Some of the first things I got in my collection were a paratrooper camo jacket and the 32 para bn pocket badges back in the late 70s

    You are lucky to have such rare items!

    Found this combat jacket in the Portuguese Air Force Arid/Desert pattern, it seems to be the later variant made by Movequipa with the hidden buttons and velcros in the pockets as the older m/997 style uniforms.
    Unfortunately the label was cut but this type of jacket was the companion of the trousers that appear above and that were also distributed to the GNR.

    Portuguese m/964 lizard combat trousers.

    These are Portuguese Army m/964 lizard combat trousers, this model was used since 1964 and well into the 80's due to large stocks being left over from the war and used until exhaustion and know very hard to find in good condition or sizing.

    This type of trousers were also used by the Angolans, both former Portuguese uniforms and then copies of it and Mozambique also used it and copies of it made in Asia.

    Some Portuguese made ones were also used by mercenaries in the Congo and later in Biafra both by the Biafrans and the Nigerian Federal Forces.

    Portuguese m/985 lizard combat trousers.

    These are Portuguese Army m/985 lizard combat trousers, this model started to be issued around 1985 and was replaced by the DPM base Uniforme B from the mid 90's until completely out of service by the late 90's.

    This type of trousers were a direct evolution from the m/964 pattern made from the start with the popular modifications that soldiers used to do with the older model like the lack of back pockets and velcro replacing the hidden buttons.

    This type of trousers were usually issued to the Comandos and the Rangers as standard and only to other units when sent to missions abroad. Portugal also supplied Mozambique with this pattern and some units still use it to this date.

    Portuguese m/985 lizard combat jacket.

    This is a Portuguese Army m/985 lizard combat jacket, this model started to be issued around 1985 was was replaced by the DPM based Uniforme B from the mid 90's in European theater and completely out of service by the late 90's for tropical theaters.

    This jacket was an evolution of the modifications made on the m/964 jacket and some more. The interior pocket now had access from the front and was closed by a zipper, the pocket flaps were closed by velcro strips and the waist pockets were now on the inside to avoid snagging. The waist cordon was replaced by a sewed interior elastic.

    The jacket was still considered long and many soldiers cut it shorter in the same manner done to the older m/964 and did away with the waist pockets most of the times since there were almost useless when using a combat belt.

    This type of jacket was usually issued to the Comandos and the Rangers as standard and only to other units when sent to missions abroad. Portugal also supplied Mozambique with this pattern and some units still use it to this date.

    Very nice!! I've not run into one of these before. I presume it is quite rare? Is there also trousers with similar modified features?

    The jacket and trousers are standard m/985, what I meant is that the m/985 was an evolution of the m/964 incorporating the most popular modifications made to it by soldiers during its service life.
