    USAF Pararescue Uniform?

    Post by Ben on Thu Dec 11, 2014 3:45 am

    Was browsing photos of USAF Pararescue and stumbled on this photo from Wikipedia showing them on a mountaintop somewhere in Afghanistan. The photo is dated 2008.
    What I found interesting was the 3-colour camo they're wearing...the uniform looks to be cut very similarly to British S-95 kit, as evidenced by the pocket types and button placement on the smock. The pattern orientation seems slightly different than traditional US 3-colour desert, however.



    Does anyone know if such a uniform was ever produced in quantity and used on a wide scale? My first thought was commercially produced kit made by Arktis Gear in the UK, but I'm not 100% sure.

    Any thoughts or opinions? In all honesty I'm just curious to know.

    The only USAF is smsgt lopez in OD, the rest are Afghans

    But it could just simply be locally made commercial stuff made from random fabrics, I think I've seen some BDU/DCU in UK Uniform cuts before... maybe from one of those Paki/Chinese manufacturing websites.
