A Gymnasterka is a dense tissue elongated service blouse worn untucked with a waist belt as a field military uniform in the Russian and then the Red Army.
The blouse was widespread in Russia thanks to its good performance, simplicity of design and fit, low cost of manufacturing and comfort in wearing.
In the Soviet Army it was canceled only on January 1 , 1972.
The soviet Armed Forces refused the blouse in favor of cotton and wool blend jackets, since it was much more difficult to take off a blouse than a jacket in case of medical care for an injury, trauma, radiation and chemical contamination.
