MTP Barracks Shirt but with Velcro?

Have seen a couple of these shirts recently but can’t identify them

It looks like a barracks shirt but with velcro patches on the sleeve.

Any ideas?

You may be looking at Future Aircrew Clothing System (FACS) shirts.

Barrack shirt and CS95 aren’t the same.

Possibly a CS95 shirt… buttons and plates

Rather than BrckShrt with buttons and no plates

Could be Crye Precision which is now on issue to the RM, or private purchase

No plates on CS95 - you’re thinking of PCS.

I have both CS95 pattern shirts and new barrack and neither have Velcro on the arms so it’s likely the aircrew shirt mentioned above.

It might be that you have a normal barracks shirt where someone’s had Velcro added to the arms to make changing over badges easier

Definitely looked like CS95 pattern barracks shirt albeit with blanking patch sized velcro on the arms.

There is some kicking about, they are lesser seen but they are about.

I wonder if it was part of a transition set, like the weird windproof smocks that are CS95 cut but have the Velcro on the arms.

There was a FR shirt in CS95 cut MTP issued that had a velcro collar and cuffs and a velcro pocket on the left arm, but no velcro panels. It is possible there might be such a shirt somewhere knocked up in a limited run for trials, but I’ve never heard of one being on general issue.

As far as I know the general issue shirts went straight from the original UOR tropical MTP shirt to the PCS shirt, and then to the current barrack shirt.

That was why I wondered if it might be the new RM CU

I don’t think they are getting a CS95 type shirt, they are getting kit made by Crye Precision I believe.

Yeah, the RM Crye shirts have weird angled pockets and all sorts.
