    Just saw this today and I don't know what it is. I don't think it's original Soviet issue, as the seller claims, but I'm also not sure it's pure commercial. The stamps look interesting, the 3 pocket snap design do not Wink

    The pattern looks unmistakably Ukrainian and the style is that worn by ground attack crews and support personnel. The date appears to be "07" and we know the Russians no longer actively issue TTsKO uniforms, but I have seen photos of Russian aircrews still wearing older uniforms until very recently.

    Photos below are of the two different aircrew types of uniform worn by the Ukrainians:

    Hope this helps.

    I also think it's Ukrainian. The Soviet stuff is so well documented as are the Russian continuations. Never seen this before AND the guy has 10 sets for sale. All brand new. Although it's possible someone stumbled upon a cache of a previously unknown uniform type, VERY unlikely. Which is another reason to suspect it's Ukrainian since they are making stuff to this day.

    The air crew uniforms have zippers up the front and for the pockets. At least that is all I've seen out there, including the two pics posted above (one of the guys is in both pictures). Snaps, however, are a traditional feature of Soviet and Russian vehicle crew uniforms. The two have always had more in common with each other than infantry uniforms, so that guy on the left in the first picture could be wearing a zippered 3 pocket jacket similar to the one I'm asking about (definitely not the same due to the zippered front).

    Therefore, my guess right now is this is a Ukrainian vehicle crew uniform. Would love to see it confirmed as that or something else. The price this guy wants isn't great, so I'll probably pass on it.

    Factory stamp shows that this uniform was manufactured at the Sasovo garment factory, Ryazan region, Russia

    Interesting. Could this be an early Russian Air crew uniform? First I've seen of this design.

    That's surprising.

    As far as I'm aware, current Russian aircrew uniforms are still made in the older style with zippered chest pockets by Technoavia:

    This could be a uniform for support troops, technical crews etc.

    Confirmed air force engineering personnel uniform, just a camouflage version of a Soviet uniform from the 1980s. I'll see if I can dig up some photos.

    The pre-camo version of the same uniform, first appearing around 1984:

    And the khaki tropical version:

    I suspect the camouflage version did not appear until after 1991. There were several uniforms that were specified in camouflage during Soviet times, but which were never realized until after the collapse of the USSR for whatever reasons, such as the tanker-style TTsKO.
