Do you think that this is the same suit that the Fortress troops use?

    Hello, fourtycoats!

    Nice to hear that my advice to try Opera was resultive!

    What about the origin of this jacket, in my opinion this is just FWK jacket with added velcro patches of MP.
    I saw such jackets on the pics, that shape of velcro patch on the chest is similar to the FWK ones - you can see them on the pics I provided.

    More over, I don't think Swiss MP use some mono colour uniform different from the TAZ90 of the Armed Forces, but FWK definitely do this.

    It was not hard to put MP patches on FWK uniform - the places and bases for the patches are the same.
    FWK was and is a very rerspectful organization, as there worked professionals, and this branch was a single non-militia based formation of the country.

    This is just my personal opinion, so if there are some other different opinions I will be glad to learn them.

    Hello again!

    I managed to find some pics which show Swiss MP uniform in olive green.
    I think that the process of finding the truth is the most important and the most admiring way of spending life! ;-)

    Thanks a lot!
    After our last conversation I got an impression that you felt sad because the jacket could be not real MP one.
    At that time I had only that information...

    But recently I found the pics that show you got the real thing!
    So I was in a hurry to let you know this.

    Moreover, on the last pic you can see the velcro patch on the chest, that your jacket misses.
    Now you have a target to hunt, and you know what to look for to collect the full set of patches for this jacket. And you see the how the pants look like as well.
