This is a list of Yugoslavian/Serbian large Oak Leaf Pattern uniform items.

I have written this to decipher the supposed "M89" and "M93" uniform designations often mentioned. It is a work in progress.

These items were used by:

  1. Yugoslavia (SFR) 1989-91
  2. Serbia and Montenegro (FRY) 1992-2006
  3. Serbia 2006 onwards
  4. Serbian Krajina 1991-95
  5. Srpska Republic (BPC: Army of Republika Srpska) 1992-2003
  6. Bosnia and Herzegovina 1997 onwards
  7. and probably Kosovo (TBC).

 

The items can be identified pattern number which is designated as "SNO" (Latin), "CHO" (Cyrillic), "SORS" or "COPC" on tags.

Flight or AFV Trousers 4394 1994 NIL  
 
Cap 650 1992 M89  

 

So far I think M89 and M93 should only be used to designate standard uniforms (ie shirt, jacket, trousers).
