    Hello, everyone,

    I recently wrote several reviews of modern Japanese combat boots (JSDF).

    Japanese combat boots reviews

    I found that there is a lack of information on this topic in English.

    This could be a complementary information to the topics on old and modern Japanese camouflage.

    If you have any professional opinions or need to correct the text, please let me know.

    I'm not really sure where people get the impression that Type 1 camo was exclusive to the airborne brigade or any other unit. There's footage from 1969 or 1970 of the 2nd Division using it and throughout the 80s it seems to have been available to most if not all infantry units.

    Hello!
    Thank you for your comment!

    "JGSDF Type I was the first camou pattern adopted by Japan after World War II. It was used by the 1st Airborne Brigade and JGSDF Air Defense Artillery Groups in the 1970s–1990s (still in limited use in 2014).
    That’s why it is also known as "Airborne Camo" or just "Old Camo".
    The color scheme of the pattern is based on Hokkaido's wilderness (effective in Sasa veitchii (bamboo) fields), but the shades become distinguishable after wash, and the pattern itself doesn't match to the environment in mainland Japan, leading to the introduction of Type II camouflage.
    "

    The source of this information was:
    https://www.revolvy.com/page/List-of-modern-equipment-of-the-Japan-Ground-Self%252DDefense-Force?cr=1

    Unfortunately, this link does not work now, I have only information from there. As you know, Internet links and addresses are unstable, it's not like a museum, today they work and tomorrow they don't.
    So to save the information, I transferred it to a WORD-file, the information is saved, but the source is not.
