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 M51 field jacket, shirt and trousers, all in a shade of forest green known as Shade 255. This is a rare example of the jacket.
Great, but worn condition. Some light marks, fading to the green and light fraying on the cuffs.
