    Interesting name and army tapes! Usually during this period there are either none or they are OD. Nice.

    Ironically I just got an unexpected 1986 dated 6 color desert trousers today! Funny as they came to me from Estonia. Someone threw it in with a bunch of Estonian kit I bought.

    Has anyone seen earlier than 1983? I had this 1983 Set:

    (I think the hat is commercial - but why dated 83?)

    I have 1981 and 1976 in my collection. I believe the 1983 issue was due to operation bright star which took place in the Egyptian desert.

    Same camo print but cut identical to RDF. There is and even earlier suit I believe 1971/2 in RDF cut that came supplied with jacket, trousers , M1 cover , foliage loop wide brim boonie , brown leather sand tan cloth sides vibram soled jungle boots and a large pack cover.
