    Check these out. They were purchased in Uzbekistan, but I do not know if they originated there. I also can't read the date on the stamps.

    First set is in standard Soviet style 6 pocket, second is a work set.  Same material, which is quite thin.  Similar to the Moldovan type, but poorer quality:

    Does anybody know anything about this pattern?

    if both sets were purchased in Uzbekistan this doesn't mean that they are the Uzbekistan pattern.
    As for me I don't remember uniform of this colour. May be some times, as other foreign uniforms in 90ies.

    That is one strange pattern. All I can tell you is that the specification code on the stamp is certainly the same as the Soviet-era "Afghanka" uniforms, and virtually all 6-pocket summer field uniforms that followed in Russia and the CIS, and the cut is obviously the same on the first uniform. I could only speculate on who issued it. Some obscure ministry, Uzbekistan's space warfare division, railroad and bus stop armed militia..  Very Happy 

    The second uniform is where things get stranger still.

    No, nothing thereof. Something vastly more valuable, possible experimental.

    1982? That would be probably the first year of production for the Afghanka uniform. I've not heard of them experimenting with camouflage at that time.

    The cloth is very thin. Similar to some of the early Moldovan uniforms. I assumed it was made in the early 1990s.

    Hello Steve! This set have Standard specifications TU-17-08-172-82. 82 - 1982 year. Yes - This is made as "Afghanka" uniform. The Inscription - a russian language. I think this no early 1990s.

    Wow.  That makes these uniforms even more interesting! Thanks for the information!

    Oh, and I should qualify my comment above about what I mean by "experimenting". The only pattern I am aware of from the early 1980s is TTsKO variations. While it is logical to think that they tried some other patterns, I've not seen any that I can think of. I checked a few sources and did not see any mentioned there either. Just TTsKO.

    To me this seems like a variation of VSR, which is another reason I thought it was early 1990s.

    Hey guys. The 82 date refers to the broad specification code for all Afghanka uniforms, regardless of any camouflage application. Think of it as analogous to an NSN code, the year indicates when it was approved for service.

    This is not the year it was manufactured.
