Soviet Tank Crew Jacket (I think)

Recommended Posts

Any ideas what this jacket is?

It appears to be a rubberized canvas or chemical resistant material with Soviet tanker insignia.

Is the date 52 OCT 4?

The ribbons appear to be the Order of the Patriotic War, Order of the Red Star and the medal For Courage.

No, this is not a date. Since this is russian stuff, everything is in cyrillic.

So the second line is actually размер 52 рост 4 - those are measures.

Last line is manufacturing year, this 1975, so this is USSR era stuff...

And this is not a tanker jacket, this is fantasy item. Little search shows

that already 2006 this was around and they ID'd it :)

You can use Google translate to read the thread there but bottom line - stay away

from it, fantasy item.

Thank you for the info Val. I already bought it but it was cheap and it fits me so I wear it.

Hello Doug & Val,

Nice item but as Val mentioned very clearly the answer (he's clever ol Val) he's the one to find the answer!

Best wishes to you both.....Desert Rat
