    Pants: 4 button fly. Suspenders. Slash type hip pockets. Zippered pockets on the front of each thigh. Knife pocket on leg with lanyard and snap closure. Snap adjustments on pant cuffs.

    The snaps on this uniform are not subdued – they are shiny.

    This is an excellent post!

    The winter uniform has been around from the late 70s but in a single colour dark blue fabric. The camouflage version was specified in 1984, according to the "TU" number in the stamps. The reasoning for issuing camouflage to aviators was to increase their concealment when ejecting over Afghanistan's middle and northern latitudes.

    My own, from 1992:

    Very nice examples of Soviet/Russian aviation suits!

    Could you also add your VSR summer aviation suit by chance?
    This thread could be a nice source for information about different aviation suits, I'll also add my uniforms when I'm back in Germany.

    I need to snap a picture of the strange soft cap that was stored in one of the pockets.

    Out of curiosity, does anyone know of any specific VVS knife that was meant to be stored in the leg pocket with the lanyard?
