    Service kitel tunic of a Naval Air Force Major General, circa late 1960s- early 70s.

    Service kitel tunic of a Naval Air Force Major General, circa late 1960s- early 70s.

    In high quality dark blue wool gabardine. Stand-up collar and internal breast pockets with flaps, no piping on either the collar or cuffs. The sky blue piped shoulder boards are in black silk brocade with embroidered gold stars. The Moscow marked buttons on the front of the tunic show the Soviet state emblem and are dated "66" and "67"; the buttons on each cuff are dated "64". Sleeve length is 24 " from seam to cuff. The chest measures 44". Length from top of collar to bottom hem 29".

    Condition is very good to excellent. Only under raking light is it possible to detect where ribbon bars may have once been sewn on the left breast. While the lining shows that a screw back badge was once worn on right breast, the puncture is not visible on the front of the tunic. There is a tiny hole, possibly from moth but more likely from cigarette ash on the right sleeve (about 1 "above the edge of the cuff). The tunic has been freeze treated and is free of any problems.

    A prime and eminently displayable example of the everyday uniform worn daily in the Soviet Navy during the height of the Cold War. The Naval Air Force General shoulder boards of course make this tunic very uncommon: Soviet naval aviation was a relatively weak branch compared with either the size of regular Air Forces or the conventional navy.
