For years I had this listed as a main force VC officer uniform, i have had many SF vets and other collectors who disagreed with that. I talked to all the special forces collectors I know and they say it was made for special forces, they wore these black uniforms in the early war and the phoenix program . The picture is from Southerland book, shows the exact same uniform, only with long sleeves. This is a very rare uniform to find, i have never found another. I have had this for over 30 years
