    Peterson writes about this in his book “Wehrmacht Camouflage Uniforms: And Post-War Derivatives” but, here is a photo comparison of a couple of Bulgarian uniforms. These photos show what Peterson was referring to.

    Some collector references (including “brainchild” websites) describe these two uniforms as being separate patterns - frog pattern and rain pattern.

    As you can see, these uniforms actually have the same drawings, just the coloration is different.

    Here is the backside of a Czech “needle” pattern jacket. As you can see the Czech pattern also resembles the Bulgarian pattern (not sure if it is an exact match or not). Steve has mentioned this before.

    Hope this is of interest.

    Thanks,
