Collection: Bulgarian Army CAMO

Bulgarian units employed a variation of the German Wehrmacht splittertarn (splinter) pattern during or immediately following the Second World War. This in turn led to adoption of a number of variations of the pattern over the next 55 years, which ultimately became the standard uniform of the Bulgarian soldier. With the collapse of the Warsaw Pact and the Soviet Union, Bulgaria rapidly became interested in shedding her ties to the old regimes and adopted several camouflage patterns based on the British DPM modelub the early part of the 21st century. These remain in regular service today.
