Type 07

Type 07 is a new family of military uniforms to be used by all branches of the People's Liberation Army (PLA) and People's Armed Police (PAP) of the People's Republic of China (PRC). During 2007-2008, the new uniforms will replace the Type 87 Service Uniforms currently in use by regular units and the Type 97 Service Dress Service Uniforms currently in use by PLA garrison troops in People's Liberation Army Hong Kong Garrison and People's Liberation Army Macau Garrison. The new Type 07 uniforms were unveiled in late June 2007 during the celebration ceremony the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China.zh icon [http://www.fyjs.cn/viewarticle.php?id=100631 07式新军服-穿出美丽穿出战斗力【大图22P,22PIX of New Type 07 uniform, big foto】 - 飞扬军事 - 信息资讯 - [军事主题 - 陆地狂飙 ] ]

Army Uniforms

The Type 07 Army Uniforms will be the newest uniforms to be adopted by all PLA Ground Force and Second Artillery Corps (Strategic Missile Force) units in 2007-08, replacing various uniforms currently in use — the Type 87 Service Uniforms for regular ground forces units and the Type 97 Service Uniforms for PLA garrison troops in Hong Kong and Macau. The new Type 07 uniform made its debut in late June 2007 during the ceremony to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China.

Compared to the previous "olive green" service uniforms that have been in service with the PLA Ground Force since the mid-1980s, the new Type 07 Army Uniforms features a colder "pine green" color, with better material and cutting to give a more stylish and yet professional appearance. All rank insignias are on green backgrounds. The old standing-collar winter service uniform was abandoned in favor of an open-collar design. Furthermore, the Type 07 Army Uniforms have included a dress uniform for the first time to be worn by officers at ceremonial events.

Navy Uniforms

The Type 07 Navy Uniforms will replace the Type 87 Navy Service Uniforms and Type 97 Navy Service Uniforms in current service with the People's Liberation Army Navy (PLAN). The new Type 07 uniform made its debut in late June 2007 during the ceremony to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China, and will be introduced to all PLAN units in the next three years.

The new Type 07 Navy Uniforms adopts white and navy-blue as its basic colors, with better material and cutting to give a more stylish and professional appearance. Officers will receive for the first time a dress uniform to be worn at ceremonial events. In addition, officers will receive two Spring/Autumn Service Uniforms instead of one, an all-white design with the traditional shoulder rank insignia and a navy-blue design with cuff insignia replacing the traditional shoulder rank insignia.

Air Force Uniforms

The Type 07 Air Force Uniforms will replace the two Air Force Service Uniforms in service with the People's Liberation Army Air Force (PLAAF) — the Type 05 Air Force Service Uniforms currently in use with regular airmen and the Type 97 Air Force Service Uniforms used by the PLA garrison troops in Hong Kong and Macau. The new Type 07 uniform made its debut in late June 2007 during the ceremony to celebrate the 10th anniversary of Hong Kong's return to China.

The new Type 07 Air Force Uniforms inherited the "Air Force Blue" color of the Type 05 Air Force Service Uniforms, but with better material and cutting to give a more stylish and professional appearance. All rank insignias are on blue backgrounds. The old standing-collar winter service uniform was abandoned in favor of an open-collar design. Furthermore, the new uniforms also included for the first time a dress uniform to be worn by officers at ceremonial events.

Combat & Training Uniforms

In 2007, the PLA introduced the Type 07 Combat & Training Uniforms to replace the older Type 87 Combat & Training Uniforms originally introduced in the 1980s. Each serviceman in the PLA has a Winter Combat & Training Uniform made of woolen material and a Summer Combat & Training Uniform made of cotton material. Both uniforms consist of a coat, trousers, a soft cap and black leather boots.

The Summer Combat Uniform has a coat replacing the waist-length jacket used by the Type 87, with cuffed sleeves, a soft turndown collar, two zipper breast pockets, two hip pockets, and an arm pocket on the left sleeve. The rank insignia is worn on the collar. In summer period, enlisted personnel also wear a T-shirt (either in green or camouflage) for physical training. The Winter Combat Uniform has an inner lining of quilted cotton padding brown fur collar, and a hood. A fur cap with earflaps is available for winter operations.

The Type 07 Combat & Training Uniforms are available in four basic camouflage patterns, all in the four-color digital pattern:

*Woodland: Light green, dark green, brown and black
*Desert: Tan, brown, dark brown and black
*Urban: Gray, green, brown and black
