Hey all,

I wanted to ask a quick question before I go get some patches tailored on by a local shop here on a few uniforms I have that need some character.

Does anyone know all the variations the Russian Border Guard uses? I've seen a few photographs that show FLORA of course, but I've also seen a few that look like either LES or NATO pattern. Any help would be appreciated on this!

Excellent, I'll be sure to take the LES down to the shop when I get my M32 uniform patches up.

I wish I could figure out who the hell uses that NATO pattern, I really enjoy it but I have no idea what patch to put on it.

Georgia gets a lot too. Germany have their own pattern, not sure about Romania!

Romania started using their own variation of the ACU pattern, very ugly, I think Rogenwolf designed it for them though. ^^

But yeah the Georgian militia has been using Woodland pattern for awhile, not sure about NATO though, I haven't seen any decent photographs of anyone using this pattern. And Border Guard primarily uses LES and Berezka now so who knows really.

I did, however, recently get a uniform called 'Peas' pattern and it was apparently used by the FSB in Dagestan during the depression. It has the OTK stamp and everything on it, pretty wild!

Yeah, we're actually making reference to the camouflage pattern known as 'NATO,' however, not so much the NATO forces. I know, kind of a paradox :\

It was designed later on after LES but they are almost identical except NATO pattern is more khaki dominant than the LES which is more Dark Green and Dark Brown with a little less black splotches.
