Collection: Chinese PLA Type 99 Airborne Urban CAMO

Type 99 is a camouflage pattern used by People's Liberation Army Forces (PLAF) of the People's Republic of China. The PLAF Airborne Divisions began wearing a four-color urban camouflage pattern on parades around 1999.  This Type 99 design does not seem to be worn operationally, but only as a mark of their elite status.

The type 99 is a camouflage pattern used by People's Liberation Army of the People's Republic of China. Type 99 has developed many variants throughout its service, each with different designations and color variants. For example, there are Type 87, Type 95, and Type 03 patterns.

Type 99, like many other woodland uniforms with black, has been criticized for its use of this color, but once faded, it becomes dull and subdued, and therefore virtually unnoticeable. Type 99's style imitates that of the older American M81 Woodland camouflage, in the sense it utilizes a macropattern of four colors for concealment, printed in interlocking, elongated and branching blobs. Type 99 uses a yellowish-green color for its fourth color, as opposed to the US pattern's khaki. Type 99 is the camouflage pattern for Type 87 Combat & Training Uniform. The camouflage and uniform is replaced by the digital Type 07 Combat & Training Uniform.
