    I heared that from my friend who served as ANA Major.
    Before This happen,Chinese made uniforms are already issued by ANA soldiers but They are Privately Purchased at local market Not officially adopted. But now...?
    Now ANA No longer issue SAFI,AWFL and Arrow general made unifoms that made locally with american fabric,they import their uniform from china.
    Because Chinese made uniform is much more cheaper than locally made unifom(with american fabric).
    They are maked A.N group or A.N.A on label.
    I don't sure This awful news is real or not. but I find Chinese manufacturer: http://safetyshoes.tradeindia.com/military-uniform.html
    They made ANA digital camo,APPF digital and ANP 3 color and ABP camouflage uniforms...

    One example of corruption in Afghan Government. US had Afghans start their own factories to make uniforms and boots to stimulate their economy and create jobs. Apparently they decided to do outsourcing for more profits.

    Do you have a printed news article on this change? I have digital copies of all the uniform contracts that specified all the details (ie number/size, pattern specifications, and camo type for each uniform). The quantities were pretty high for each but I don't know when those contracts were supposed to end or why they would change after having issued the contracts. Perhaps the Chinese company is simply making a "knock off" for the commercial market, not necessarily in AFG but ANA just happen to buy them as well. However, I do know Chinese companies are making ANA patches and sending them to AFG for resale on bases such as BAF as of 2009. Tom

    nope I don't have any article or news link. as i said I just heard that from my friend in afghanistan.
    Maybe you're right. These chinese made uniforms are just "knock off"

    The only way to prove our disscussion. If someone find Afghan local company made uniforms that made after 2014. problem will be solved.

    With Corruption rife in the Afghan MOD, I'm sure the contracts for uniforms have certainly gone towards central Asian companies (Chinese), in fact ANG and China-Manufactuer Co. (yes, how it's spelled on the tags) uniforms have surfaced with during trades/sales with my friends who are slowly coming back.

    if you read online, Kabul Milli is about or is out of business because they can't complete with Chinese crap.

    Fake or not, wish I could get an APPF uniform, only thing missing in my collection.
