September 20, 2011 Patch

February 9, 2012 Patch


  • In the USSR (СССР), the side cap was known as a "pilotka", from "pilot" — the cap was a part of air force pilots' uniforms in World War I. They were the most common type of hat in the WWII Red Army and were used in the summer instead of the ushankas worn in the winter.
  • The hat also sits at an angle on the Heavy's head, which was a popular way for allied garrison caps to be worn during the WWII period.
