    The current Ukrainian military issued camouflaged uniforms I believe are stamped inside with size, Etc. My question is, are the volunteer battalions and Azov using the same issued uniforms or do they use commercially made copies or get whatever they find that can be used.

    Sorry for late reply, but maybe it is not too late.

    In end of 2014. it was flooded with surplus Flecktarn clothing, Polish vests and helmets plus covers. During 2015. it transfered to MTP, mostly surplus, but later on people would use anything MTP they could find in open market. Today you can see multicam and scorpion used, some surplus some from open market.

    Lots of information you can find on Japanese guys reenacting pages:

    There's been many changes since the war started. There still is an Azov Brigade (officially the 12th National Guard Brigade) within the "Offensive Guard" National Guard system. They receive uniforms through the MoD and have, apparently officially, adopted multicam. I expect from whatever source and form they care to.

    Parts of the sprawling pre-war Azov formations were transformed into the 3rd Assault Brigade late last year, which also incorporated some other battalions to become a true brigade. This is a normal regular army unit, therefore it is outfitted the same as any other one.

    The 3rd Assault Brigade has been fighting around Bakhmut for a while now and is making very steady progress at pushing the Russians back from the . They continue to have excellent media production and regularly post on their YouTube channel. The footage tends to be some of the best (i.e. not chopped up junk with music) out there.

    Coincidence. A Ukrainian friend of mine just mentioned that the reorganized Azov Brigade entered combat ops in the Zaporizhia front a couple of days ago. There should be some good images of them in combat starting later this week (news blackout is roughly a 3 day rolling period).
