New Russian Camo

Фотогалерея: Новая форма российских военнослужащих - Новости@Mail.ru

Apparently there will be three versions - summer, winter, and "transition." Seems everyone is going to velcro...

Re: New Russian Camo

Ahh, even the digital FLORA has been upgraded several times. This must be the 3rd generation.
Quite fancy.

Re: New Russian Camo

The uniforms as such look nice (altough I am not a fan of velcro), but the camouflage still seams to be uneffective at greater distances. They relly should redesign it - the idea of digital camo is good, but this one is not the best ofthem.

Re: New Russian Camo

By the time the troops actually get it, it will look Russian again. :mad:

Well, it better be slow, so that we don't do a mistake like the last time... (A lot of soldiers got frost-damages because the Chinese factory producing the material had failed a some point so the isolation weren't as successful from the Russian "drawing board" till the 'finished' product.

Also, I asked a friend of mine, he's the one who knows the most about Soviet/Russian combat gear around, about the American ACU being replaced, and he said something interesting that I've never thought about: "The ACU was copied from Canadian CADPAT which came first, and Canada copied from TTsMKK which came way before theirs."

That would prove that the Digital FLORA is just the revolutionized version of the old "трёхцветный маскировочный камуфлированный комбинезон" camo.

@USSR; Different Spetsnaz units actually use a Russian-made Flecktarn, which is simply called Flecktarn. It is 'officially' "Russian" :thumbsup

Oh, BTW, doesn't this lad look like Florian Schneider? http://news.mail.ru/pic/02/24/image1...7cca84600c.jpg
