    Here are pictures of the new SAF No.4 "Pixelised" uniform. It was first introduced in 2008, which is what these items are dated as. As with other Singapore items, these are made in China.

    There are several very interesting features of this uniform. On the jacket there is a small patch of velcro behind the rank instead of a button. This is really useful, IMHO, because it's sometimes quite difficult to button up a jacket when one of the buttons is under the rank flap.

    The rank flap is sewn down to the uniform, which means it is actually a loop. Because it can't slip on the rank itself has velcro on its back. This allows it to stay securely on the loop. I suspect this feature keeps the rank flap from being accidentally unattached during field use.

    The trousers have velcroed camo straps on the insides of each leg at knee height. I presume this helps keep knee pad straps from slipping down the leg. An apparent prototype actually had the knee reinforcements velcroed on the sides so the knee pad would go underneath, which definitely prevented it from moving but did mean the knee cloth would get beat to Hell pretty quickly. This is a better arrangement IMHO.

    Interestingly there is velcro provided only for the unit badge on the right arm. Everything else is sewn directly onto the uniform.

    There is a desert version of this uniform. I wonder if I'll ever be able to get one!

    These features appear to be very useful and are certainly the first I've seen on any uniform. Pretty neat stuff!

    Wow, I've never seen "good" pictures of the new digital pattern. Thanks for sharing those!

    Looks very similar to MARPAT, perhaps just on a smaller scale.

    Nice set there, steve! but there are some things i would lke to point out:

    the fabric of this uniform is special, AFAIK is made to draw heat away from the body, a good feature.

    The reason behind the velcro patch only for the unit badges (in this case yours is a 6th Division badge)is that, should the conscript volunteers to change his unit he is currently posted in (like my uncle did - from a regular unit to the Singapore Commandos), he can simply remove his patch and replace it with the new unit hes posted into. This feature was introduced in around 2004.

    I nearly got my hands on the desert version, until my uncle had pulled back his decision to donate a new one to me on the grounds of its legality in the hands of a civilian

    ( i reckon its just the case of him being lazy)

    @ alphaproduction ... I see you found the Singapore thread finally!

    Singapore Army uniforms turn up from time to time on EBay but they are by no means common. There is a 'soldiers market' - a multi storey open air affair which has a number of stalls catering to military needs. Now and again it is possible to source a full uniform from one or another of the stalls but usually there are just bits of assorted kit and insignia.

    heh it's not hard for the green one, the question is you want insignia with it? And what Auscam you are willing to trade?

    The desert SAF is VERY VERY VERY VERY hard to find..........
