    Not everyday I found out about the existence of Czechoslovak camouflage uniform I was totally unaware of before. And right now I know I can´t live without it anymore. Unfortunately all I have are those five lousy pictures. Have any of you heard, seen or even owned it?

    Camouflage uniform for Federal Ministry od Interior - Border police. Czechoslovakia was federation only in between 1990-1992, so that is pretty narrow timeframe.

    That's awesome! No, I've never even seen a reference to this before. From the look of the pictures it appears to have been printed on uniform quality cloth, not made from old shelter halves. Interesting that they decided to orientate it horizontally instead of the usual vertical. And what's the story with the blue coloration?!? That I'd love to see more of Wink

    I think that the blue coloration was just due to lighting.

    Anyway I found out a bit more info about this uniform. They made a preproduction batch of unknown size and some units received them for field testing. Then the uniforms were returned. Czechoslovakia divided. Both countries started works on national uniform and nobody was interested in this one. Spare uniforms were sold in surplus stores in 90s together with the 5 color experimental desert.

    Trousers had rubber waterproof linning up to the knee. I went through hundreds of user uploaded photos from early 90s from border guards but I did not find any more pictures.
