Original Soviet Gorka (Sometimes referred to as Gorka-1) was mainly used by special troops, VDV, GRU, Spetsnaz, mountain troops (the word "Gorka" originates from Russian word "mountain") and others during the Afghan War.
Since then it has been a favoured suit by those who are having to battle harsh climates.
Currently, Gorka is a Russian military uniform suit designed for special forces (spetsnaz) of MVD, FSB, VDV (airborne), GRU.
This is a new-made reproduction of Gorka-1 suit in the popular beryozka camo pattern. (Berezka)
