PLA Uniforms

The People's Liberation Army (PLA) began to develop its new generation of service uniforms at the beginning of 1993. The new uniforms were presented to the Central Military Commission for approval in 1995.

The CMC held a meeting on April 10, 1995 to examine the new uniforms. By the approval of Chairman Jiang Zemin, who examined the new uniforms personally, the new generation of uniforms were first tried on by the PLA Garrison stationed in the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region on May 1, 1997 and were introduced to the three services in the spring of 2000.
