USN Type AN6552

Introduced in 1943 at the time the Type A-2 was discontinued, the AN-6552 Flight Jacket was intended to be designated as joint service jacket available to the Navy, Marine Corps and the Army Air Corps, the jacket replacing the Navy/USMC's M-422A and USAAF's A-2.
There seems to little evidence that any were ever issued to the AAF and, as this model was only made for a six month period, very few AN-6552 jackets were ever produced making them among the rarest of an already scarce group. For those who can't find an original, Aero can offer a version indistinguishable from a 1943 original.
Our jacket is a 100% faithful recreation of the 1943 issue jacket and comes with a choice of historically correct zippers and a choice of three colours for the mouton fur. The AN-6552 continues to use the single thickness two way weave waistband and high grade rayon lining
