People's Liberation Army Insignia

PLAAF Uniforms
With the advent of 2004 a new generation of bedding, clothing and equipment for aircrew including four series and
twenty models were developed and passed the test and appraisal of General Logistics Department (GID). This indicates
that PLA has realized the serialization, rationalization of accessories, being comforting to wear and diversification of
defense function in aircrew clothing.
In the past bedding, clothing and equipment used by PLA aircrew were all equipped in 1949. They have never been
systematically researched and improved. As the army is being furnished with new models of aircraft, old bedding,
clothing and equipment are shown to be dull, oversimplified in function, antiquated and irrational in model design. In
2000 GLD decided to develop a new generation of bedding, clothing and equipment for aircrew.
The new generation of bedding, clothing and equipment was adapted to the need of
living habits, hygiene and the requirement of battle environment and flight movement
technique. It includes 4 series - Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter and adds 5
varieties including flight cotton-padded clothes, flight belt, long voyage underpants and
summer flight socks. So it is now able to serialize underwear with outer clothing,
clothing with shoes and boots and clothing with equipment. Faced with the need of
flight battle and drill the new generation of bedding, clothing and equipment has main
designed function for different layers: the outer layer emphasizes the features of wearresistance, tearing-resistance, wind-resistance, fire-resistance, finalized pattern and
pleasant appearance. Mid-layer emphasizes lightness, warmness and static-electricity resistance. Whilst the inner layer
has the features of being soft and cozy, sweat-absorbing, ventilating and irritation-free.
After two years of trial by hundreds of pilots it has been known that the new generation of bedding, clothing and
equipment is adaptable to working environment of the new aircraft models. The pilot has more freedom in tactical
maneuver. It is also compatible with such weapons and equipment as anti-G suit, counter-pressure suit, pistol and gravity
knife and satisfies the requirement of new aircraft models in battle and drill.
