Kamuflirovannyy Letniy Maskirovochnyy Kombinezon or KLMK (means Camouflage Summer Deceptive Coverall) (Russian: Камуфлированный Летный Маскировочный Комбинезон) was developed in the 1960s by the Soviet Union to overcome the widespread use of night vision optics and devices by NATO countries. This one-piece camouflage suit was soon to become one of the most widely used and revered devices out of the Soviet Union.
This piece of camouflage was first tested in 1968, and finally given to the Red Army in 1969. It is produced to this day.
This uniform has been seen in several different wars, including the following:
- The Soviet war in Afghanistan
- The war in Karabkah
- The First Chechen War
- The Second Chechen War
- The war in Georgia
Soviet forces saw the odd-looking but effective new camouflage as strikingly odd. The patterns on it sometimes resembled the colossal ears of a bunny rabbit, and the look of sunlight on the forest floor. That is how many Soviet soldiers referred to its new slang name (sun bunnies).
