    Shortage of new uniforms for army. It seems no new ones have been bought this year, ones bought before are reaching expiration and army is reverting back to old ones:

    Units from other regions like Siberia and what not also sport older uniforms.  Simply, not enough were ordered.  They only used up around 40% of SAP2020 and so expect even more orders eventually.  Why is it taking long into 2017 to make new orders? Don't know.  Maybe there is orders already but nothing delivered yet.

    Other thing we need to take into account is the accuracy of the reporting. For all we know, it could be exaggeration (I do believe there will end up shortages. Happens nearly everywhere). And ultimately, uniform is last (IMO) on priority. So long as they still get newer Kevlar helmets/vests, the rest is second/third.

    Looks like it's pretty big problem.

    Either;

    -They stopped ordering new ones

    -Never planned on implementing them fully

    -Someone pocketed the money and tried to pass off old ones

    I don't like this type of shit one bit. They can sacrifice one fighter jet per year to get enough uniforms. And if they have shortage of uniforms you can bet that kevlar and helmets are nowhere in sight.

    How can you confirm legitimacy of the claim?

    Judging by the sounds of it, and how new ones are reaching expiry, they probably didn't order more due to possible problem with quality or something else. But it is hearsay with little evidence. Maybe it is only a small portion here and there with this issue? Maybe it is something not even existent? Maybe it is just a small contingent somewhere? A lot of details are left out.

    Cap and hat

    From this year on, the servicemen will give special caps instead of everyday caps. Newcomers to the service - immediately, "old men" - in return for those who have served the prescribed terms of socks:



    Servicemen-women instead of everyday hats will be given these hats:

    For officers and ensigns



    For contract servicemen and cadets of higher education institutions



    Servicemen on conscription, cadets of higher education institutions and students of pre-university educational institutions of the Ministry of Defense will get daily caps of a new pattern:


    That's what a casual suit jacket should look like with the wrist marks of the difference in the years of service of contract servicemen:


    Patches in the form of golden elbows worn on the lower part of the outer sides of the sleeves of jackets of demi-season, jackets with long sleeves for everyday suits, jackets for naval suits, jackets for suits of summer camouflage colors. In the case when the suit of the summer camouflage color is used as a field uniform, the armorial insignia for the years of service are of a protective color.

    In 2017, a state contract was concluded for the manufacture and supply of breast patches with name and patronymic signs as belonging to military formations. Purses with name and patch marks will receive conscription servicemen on a priority basis (2 units each, one on VKPO, one for "daily routine"), cadets from the new set (2 units per VKPO and "daily routine" ).

    According to the decision of the NGSH, old-style sprockets return to the shoulder straps:


    The autumn call-2017 right at the recruiting station will be given out winter boots (previously received only summer ones, which in December directly say was not ice).

    Tankmen returned black overalls



    As Sergei Ptichkin writes in the article "Tankers returned black overalls," published May 20, 2017 in the "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", on May 20 in the 4th Guards Tank Kantemirovsky Order of Lenin Red Banner Division named after Yu. Andropov celebrated the 75th anniversary of the 12th Guards Red Banner Shepetivsky Order of Suvorov and Kutuzov, the 2nd degree of the tank regiment.

    They showed modern equipment. Veterans immediately drew attention and were delighted that they saw tank-men dressed in black overalls. For a quarter of a century of endless reform of the Armed Forces, tank forces have not been left aside. Someone thought that black color does not meet the epochs of change, green camouflage fits better. And the tank-men became like ordinary motorized rifles.

    Only did not take into account that the tank is a combat vehicle, in which non-flower flowers are fragrant, but combustible-lubricating materials. Diesel, kerosene and various oils have a habit of quickly turning camouflage into something obscure.

    Common sense is back. For daily work with their cars, tankmen now have light, very comfortable and practical overalls of black color. If the work is in the park, then the black beret on the head, if there are polygon departures, then the classic headset.

    If it is necessary to participate in combat operations, the tank crews are dressed in special dense overalls of spotted, so-called, digital coloring. They differ in that they do not burn and protect themselves from small fragments. In the event that the car is disabled and the crew is forced to leave it, a special coloring will reduce the visibility of people in the enemy's vision systems. On the head instead of a headset is a helmet made of strong composite materials.

    So the form of modern tankers has become elegant and practical, both in civilian life and in war.

    Why so many camo patterns?

    Post  JMCR on Fri Jul 21, 2017 7:17 am

    So I will see military wearing mix-match of multiple patterns like so the following image which appears to be a mix of digi flora and flora. (Correct me if I'm wrong)

    -or sometimes even wearing different camouflage patterns such as how in one video which I cannot find, they were wearing digi flora primarily but some people were in civilian clothes and others in flora. Even the odd multicam was show at one point being worn by a man. I'll link the video if I can find it.

    So my question here is 'Why so many camouflage patterns as opposed to just using one. Sure makes identification of friend and foe easier, yes?'

    Sorry if this was a bit difficult to understand.
