Believe it or Not, but Hasbro has secured the contract. But apparently there are major and significant design changes, looks nothing like the classic A-2 the Air Force readopted it the late 80's.
Where are you seeing that?From a quick look, the bomber jacket is to be like the two other jacket options being introduced, all in a darkish green/brown color called "heritage green". All soldiers will have the option of wearing a leather bomber jacket as outerwear. The bomber jacket will have gathered knit cuffs and waistband, though with no shearling trim. Timeline for release isn't clear due to COVID-19.
I also saw it called a "Marshall bomber style jacket". Perhaps someone here might understand that specific jacket reference.
Wasn’t that the Naval Surface Warfare jacket that’s we discussed back then. It resembled the AN-J3 jacket I think. Is that the one you’re talking about Ed?....Not counting the US Wings version that was discussed here months ago.
