    Anybody know any details about these uniforms? I'm curious about how many different versions there might be. I've got another one that's probably from the 1980s that has different details. Also, anybody know where I can get trousers to match?

    There is a green version that is worn over flight suits by aircrew, I have been told but I don't know if it is correct that the DPM version was / is issued to Helicopter crews of the Army Air Corps

    That's an interesting Jacket Steve, I have a couple myself, but none have the chromed poppers on the front, not seen this version before??

    As Loski mentioned before, to my own knowledge these were worn by Chopper pilots..very cool Jacket Wink
