The Rhodesian Brushstroke pattern is legendary, from it's inception during the Rhodesian Bush War, to later service throughout Africa, a variant to this day remains the standard camo of the Zimbabwean Army. At one point, the pattern was noted as being so effective that it was in contention to replace the M83 Woodland pattern for the United States Marine Corps.

These shirts are a leftover of our first attempts at creating a "combat cut" with velcro sleeve, but RAID modding our existing battle dress uniform shirts in Rhodesian Brushstroke. The result is a pretty functional uniform, still featuring the four pockets (now two placed at the breast, and two velcro'd pockets on the sleeves), and a lowered pen pocket. These were a one time, experimental run of shirts and quantities are extremely limited. There are no plans to reproduce this variant of shirt in the future, so once they're gone, they're gone!

Just got mine and it was Christmas in August. This shirt was exactly the quality of material, construction and fidelity to the Brushstroke camo pattern I expected. The fabric was damn near bullet proof by itself (Don't wear it on the veld though, you'll melt. However I'm sure a couple or three washings will soften the fabric up plenty, it's cotton after all.) Now for a couple of features beyond the normal quality you'd expect from FireForce. The Brushstroke pattern was identical to that on the Keko cap I got from FFV. This despite the cap being "softer" than the shirt, again some washing will likely solve that. That said there was NO difference in color between the two items. Impressive. Secondly the sleeves were double sided with camo above the elbow. There is no need for an order from the Sec Def or some 4 star with too much time on his hands to pronounce upon, just roll baby roll and your sleeves will be camo out without all sorts of weird rolling tricks. I didn't see this advertised (if it was there to be seen) on the website which is as cool as it was unexpected. If it's Rhodesian Brushstoke camo you want look no further that Fireforce Ventures.
