Iranian Army Desert Digital Camouflage Uniforms
Around the year 2009, the Iranian Army introduced a Desert digital camouflage uniform, likely mimicking the USMC MARPAT camouflage pattern. In period photographs, both the Iranian Army and Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps wear this pattern, but it seems to be more prominent with the latter. There are multiple different uniform styles that this camo comes in, and this section will cover them.
Normal Style Desert Digital Camo Uniform
The uniform variant shown here is the more normal style of Iranian uniforms; pocket flaps pointed to one side, 4 pocket configuration on the jacket, and fabric piece that can be folded across the inside section near the neck. However, this uniform has more of a mustard tone to the camo than tan, but this is probably caused by a different manufacturer. The uniform also sports Sergeant 1st Class ranks, Iranian flag patch, Ground Forces sleeve patch, and Iranian Army pocket patch.
ACU Cut Desert Digital Camo Uniform
One example of the Desert Digital camouflage uniform is made in the US Advanced Combat Uniform style, with two slanted breast pockets, flip up collar, and shoulder pockets. Unlike the ACU however, the uniform above is of inferior quality and made of very very thin materials. Judging by the tags and online manufacturing websites, this uniform is likely made in China and exported to Iran.
