The PLA Rocket Force will issue new dress and service uniform starting from July 1 as approved by the Central Military Commission (CMC), according to Colonel Wu Qian, spokesperson for the Ministry of National Defense (MND) of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) during the defense ministry’s regular press conference on June 30, 2016.
Wu Qian said that the dress and service uniform issued this time belongs to the Type-07 military uniform family, maintaining the same style, pattern, and material while making changes to the colors of the uniform.
The main color of the new dress and service uniform is dark green, the shirt and long sleeve and short sleeve jackets are Khaki, and the floss of male and female caps and ties are dark green, according to Wu.
The colors of the newly issued dress and service uniform for the PLA Rocket Force are more service specific. Dark green is the color for the main Rocket Force weaponry and equipment, with green as the classical color of the Chinese military uniform, and Khaki is the color of the missile ignition flame, which is also the classical color for international military uniforms, said Wu Qian.
Besides, the color mix is more balanced and innovative. The old rocket force uniform, which is the same as the army uniform, that are still in storage will be issued to the PLA Army to avoid waste, Wu Qian added.
