The badge you have there is a breast badge for state security worker. Alfa have a unit logo patch worn with the distinctive uniforms, Tigr or Ten pattern camo would be the norm with the logo on the sleeve and 'OSNAZ' or 'SPETSNAZ' back and chest patches as well as FSB flag patches, they have recently fielded a back patch that says 'ALFA' but these arent appearing on the market just yet. Soviet KGB Alfa would use KLMK or KZS combat uniform (not sniper suit) or even a flat coloured uniform such as summer Afganka with a maroon KGB sleeve patch and an Alfa unit patch, backpatches were not common in the Soviet Union. Alfa have a similar breast badge to the one you have that is given to Alfa veterans

I have some Kamysh camouflage called Russian Tiger that I think might work very well in this situation.

What patches do you think would go well on this pattern? I can find one of these ALFA Patches here in the US if it would be accurate, and I can build on that for now, but would you say that pin badge would work generally well on this uniform just as compensation for the actual badge?

I don't know if this is helpful for you but here are some pics of different KGB uniforms, I found them in an e-book called 'Soviet Block Elite Forces'. I can send it to you if you want...

Seems like most of those are very early era KGB, as of now I could replicate the KGB boarder guard in Afghanistan model... But that's about it.

The breast badge would be a good compensation. Alfa patch on the right sleeve as well.

Well I can't find the freaking Alfa patch anymore... I think they took it down.

All I can find now is the KGB boarder guard's shoulder boards and patch, so I think I may have to switch to KLMK...

No matter what other people say to me, I still think the KGB are bad ass. Look at their cool uniforms! Very Happy

BTW, does the KGB still exists in Russia or has it collapsed along with the Soviet Union?

To answer your question gafrin, I believe they are called the FSB now, but are essentially the same.

Look here to see the logo:-

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alpha_Group

But the patch is on a red background. Ive seen embroidered ones on ebay, you may pick one up on there
