    Helicopter uniform used by a pilot of 430 Tactical Helicopter Squadron which is the main force generator for the Canadian Helicopter Force (Afghanistan). Shirt and pants used by a lieutenant colonel, he wore US military issue shoulder holster made for the Beretta m9's and similiar, may be an trade with a US soldier. Just enjoy it, feel free to post any comments

    The holster is a US made item but has been Canadian issue for over 15 years. There was some AR Cadpat uniform items for aircrew such as a two piece flight suit but this was only introduced after a couple of deployments had already taken place.

    Also, each rotation of the Canadian Helicopter Force (Afghanistan) had a different squadron as the base element which was then augmented by member from other units. For example, 408 squadron was the lead unit for the initial deployment in 2008 and also the last in 2011.
