TAZ 83 "Alpenflage" is a Swiss variety of German Leibermuster. Some sources say that the Swiss obtained the pattern directly from WWII-era German uniform textile manufacturing lines from Czechoslovakia sometime postwar.
These field jackets were issued to combat troops of the Swiss army, with non-combat troops wearing a lighter-weight TAZ 83 field shirt. After 1970 these uniforms were issued alongside a daypack that buckled onto the jacket itself, taking the place of traditional load bearing gear in use by other militaries at the time.
