Russian Federation Off-World Uniform
 

STANDARD RUSSIAN FEDERATION SG-TEAM CAMOUFLAGE UNIFORMS:
VARIATIONS = OFFWORLD TEAMS (RUSSIAN SG PROGRAM-"The Tomb"), OFFWORLD TEAMS (SGC PROGRAM-"Metamorphosis")


The standard costume is made of of the following items from the bottom up :

1) Russian Para black leather combat boots*

http://www.tridentmilitary.com/Boots.htm, http://www.redsoldier.com/
*Conjectural: It has been very difficult to accurately identify the actual boot; any lace-up black leather combat boots will do.

2) Russian "Dubok" / VSR (Schofield) pattern desert/mountain camouflage trousers.

3) Olive web belt (exact type unknown)*

<most local surplus stores, or
http://www.uscav.com>
*Conjectural; the belt is never seen. Any Olive BDU belt should do.

4) Black Tee Shirt or mock-turtleneck (no pocket)
<any place they sell t-shirts>

5) Russian VSR (Schofield) pattern desert/mountain camouflage jacket.

6)Stargate patches*: 3.5" Russian (Cyrillic) "SG 1" Team (Russian SG program)** or 3.5" SG Project and 4" SG-4 (SGC)
   

*You can get them from: PatchGeeks, SciFiPatch or Starbase Atlanta

7) South African/Rhodesian SA-83 LBV ("Entry Vest") with "Mud Brown" pouches*(Russian SG program)

*These are getting more expensive and increasingly difficult to find; a good option is the Black Entry Vest with the pouches replaced by those from the OD version.

or Blackhawk Omega Medic/Utility Vest in Black (SGC)

*Conjectural; the beret shown above is usually assigned to Naval Infantry (Police SPETSNAZ also wear a similar cover). Any black military beret that will flatten on the right will do.
