The Mabuta (also known as Mobutu, Mabutu, Mobuta) suit is a Soviet made uniform that saw widespread use in the Soviet war in Afghanistan, mostly by VDV, DSHB and troops of the GRU. This is the first pattern, summer variant. It can easily been recognized because of the front thigh pockets. These uniforms are highly specialised and extremely rare to find. There is credible evidence that these were used by Soviet advisors and personnel in Africa and Afghanistan, 1979-1987.

Production started sometime after 1975 and seems to have continued with the second pattern until the end of the 1980's.
