Mabuta - Russian Spetsnaz GRU (special forces) uniform suit. Improved version of Aghanka uniform.
Mabuta is Aghanka uniform version for GRU special forces who fought in Afghanistan in the 80s.
This BDU is a modernized version of the suit for Soviet special forces of the 1982 model "Mabuta". Made by SPOSN (SSO) company.
Includes a jacket and pants.
Jacket has six pockets - two sleeve pockets, two chest, and two inside pockets with waterproof liners. The bottom of the sleeves is regulated by fasteners with buttons, the buttonhole of the suit is closed so as not to cling to protruding objects. This is what this suit differs from the original suit of the 1982 model - on the original suit, the bottom of the sleeve was adjustable with a slot and has one fixed position, which caused inconvenience in hot weather when it is not possible to roll up the sleeves - for example, when moving in dense bushes. This design of the sleeve, combined with mesh gussets in the armholes of the sleeves, provides good ventilation of the body in hot weather. The turn-down collar can be lifted and fastened with a pata on a Velcro textile fastener. Shoulder straps are removable, attached to long loops, which themselves can serve as shoulder straps. The bottom of the jacket is adjustable in volume with a removable belt with an elastic band fastened to several buttons. Jacket sleeves are reinforced at the elbows with a second layer of fabric.
Straight pants with a wide "cavalry" belt that protects the lower back (because the jacket is shortened) with side ties - elastic bands, loops for a wide waist belt, equipped with seven pockets - two cargo pockets on the front thighs, one cargo on the back on the left, one cargo on the right behind on the thigh, with a flap button fastened with countersunk buttons (the pocket is designed for carrying a knife), one welt-hole with a flap on the right behind, two welt-side welded, framed. The bottom of trousers is regulated by elastic bands. Valves of volumetric pockets are closed with burlap and when fastened with a secret button, they are wrapped - this valve design eliminates the loss of objects even when making parachute jumps. To improve ventilation, gussets are sewn into the groin in two layers of mesh. A characteristic feature of this suit are aprons - anthers on the underside of the trousers. Anthers refuel in boots and prevent small stones, sand, dust, snow from getting inside. Stripes are sewn to the bottom of the anthers - elastic bands that prevent the anthers from breaking out. For this purpose, the length of the trousers is increased to the bottom of the anthers. The trousers are reinforced with a second layer of fabric - in the back and around the knees. The costume is made of plain weave fabric with reinforcing thread "rip-stop" with a density of 230 g / m2, fabric composition 50 cotton, 50 polyester. All seams are double stitching with chain stitches.
