The M90 camouflage pattern was introduced in the Swedish Army around 1990 - troops were seen wearing it in 1989.

The desert version of this pattern is called M90K.

The M90 uniform system is called FU90 (Fältuniform 90 = Field uniform 90), so the designation of the different uniforms is FU90P, FU90K, FU90L etc. (but I suppose most people call them M90P, M90K etc.)

  • The Swedish M90 uniform:

FU90P = for personnel in armoured vehicles, has a different cut

FU90H = for helicopter crews - the inside is bright orange

FU90K = the desert version (öken means desert in Swedish)

FU90L = lightweight version of the M90, "L" means something like "lätt" (light)

Only the FU90K is in the desert pattern - the others are in the "green" pattern

The size of Swedish uniforms are given as height/weight. Meaning a uniform with the size 190/75 is for a person 190 cms high with a weight of 75 kgs
