    Nice pic! Whose AFV helmets are those? Domestic or imported?

    That's M91 camo, a slovenian "copy" of the M87 pattern. If i'm not mistaken, it's being phased out in favor of yet another completely original national multicam(TM).

    Late last year some pictures circulated of the proposed new uniform. It does appear to be in testing at the very least. It's similar to Multicam, but the shapes are darker and larger than on the original pattern. Large Canadian style buttons too.

    Supposedly it's already fielded in smaller numbers, an oddity is that the pants appear to be faded when compared to the relatively dark jacket despite being new, apparently this has to do with the material they're made of.

    Here's an early photo from 1992, sadly not in colour:

    I'm still on the lookout for the very first issue that was used in the 10 Day's War in 1991. Except for the shirt, the uniform pieces (coat, vest, trousers, and hat) used brass snaps instead of plastic buttons. I've got at least one hat with the snaps, but the uniform has eluded me thus far. As I understand it the uniform was produced in very small numbers before the snaps were dropped.

    Brass snaps? Does that apply to the entire field uniform or just the field jacket?
