    Afghan Commando Black Soft Shell Jacket Empty Afghan Commando Black Soft Shell Jacket

    This was part of a trade that have I been working on for a long time. This is an Afghan Commando soft shell jacket with direct embroidered ANA Commando insignia. Tag says it is made by Blackhawk!, but I have my doubts. Chest area has place for rank, name tape, and organizational tape.

    That being said, I am not sure if this is for the ANA Commandos or a US Special Forces Advisor. The rank square is more the size you see on the ACU rather than the longer rectangular ones you see on Afghan uniforms. Any thoughts?
