In the early 2000's the Bundesheer (Austrian Army) made vast changes to its rather dated uniform & gear. These field shirts were a massive improvement over the previous uniform and brought it into the 21st century. Zippers replaced the old buttoned pockets, rip-stop fabric and hook & loop areas to allow for unit patches. A handy wee feature is the ventilated armpit holes to allow your body to breathe while putting in the hard yards.
These shirts seem to have been surplused with a purpose - various components may be broken or the shirts have permanent stains making them unsightly to their commanding officer! If you are going to use these as a rough work shirt, these 'Grade 2s' might just be the ticket on a budget.
