Issued to the ministry of National Defence Minister secruity detail and widely seen during the 1986 People Power Revolt. The Pattern was of Korean manufacture and had 2 varians. The korean made rip-stop material and the locally tailored version in a thick but soft” baby canvas” Patterned after the US tropical BDU with its round slanted coat pockets. Not officially issued to NAVSOG but considered as the pre cursor tiger pattern.

My personal View: This BDU has a very briaght and unique color for the navsog and very effective in the southern part jungle in the Philippines.
Material is quite thick but yet very comfortable, it can stop many insect bites and thorns of certain plants
