In the late 1940s, in order to aid training the US Army established the Aggressor Force, a fictitious enemy that could act as the opposition during training exercises. Not content with merely a coloured armband, the army planners would create an incredibly elaborate background for the aggressors, including a backstory and a political ideology & leadership. The logo, a green triangle on white circular background, was that of the Circle Trigon Party, a quasi-mix of Nazism and Stalinist ideologies, who had originated in Bavaria but were now on track to conquer New England and Florida! 

As part of this, the army created a scratch built uniform. Taking some queues from US uniform of the time, and others from Eastern European influences, it featured a WW2 M1 helmet, modified with a wooden mohawk, and an M53 field jacket, shirt and trousers, all in a shade of forest green known as Shade 255. This is a rare example of the shirt. Pullover style, marked as Aggressor Force, and complete with removable collar colours that could be changed to show different regiments within the opposition.

Condition

Great, but worn condition. No damage, but a little fading to the green.
