Romanian shoulder boards (post 89)

Recommended Posts

Hello

Before 90, romanian army used the soviet system for the shoulder boards (like the one on the photo). I know they continued to use them in the following months after the communism collapse. But when did the new shoulder boards appear ? 90 91 ?

I believe that the new system of military ranks was introduced by Lege 80 of 1995:

The new rank insignia were generally based on those used before WWII, yet with some modifications. As far as I remember, rank insignia of generals initially resembled those used in the Bundeswehr and they were modified again a few years later.

Thanks for your reply. Romanian army continued to use the old shoulder boards and uniforms only during the transitional period 1990-91. In 1991, they had totally different shoulder boards and new uniforms. I recently had the information from a romanian military who started his carreer in 1989.
