IDF Army Tzanhanim Airborne Hooded Shirt-Olive Green
Israel IDF Army Tzanhanim Airborne Hooded Shirt
The shirts are 100% cotton and printed in Israel.
Sizes from S-XXL are available.
The Tzanhanim Airborne shirt features a White or Black print.
The print in Hebrew reads "Aharai LaTzanhanim" in the middle of the print, which translates to "Follow Me to the Paratroopers" in English. In English above the print reads "Israel Defense Forces" and at the bottom "Airborne".
The print features a snake with wings, which is the symbol of Tzanhanim. The parachute with wings represents the medal the Paratroopers receive after their first dive.
The 35th Brigade (Hebrew: חֲטִיבַת הַצַּנְחָנִים, Hativat HaTzanhanim), also known as the Paratroopers Brigade, is an infantry brigade unit of paratroopers within the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) and forms a major part of the Infantry Corps.
It has a history of carrying out special forces-style missions dating back to the 1950s. Paratrooper Brigade soldiers wear maroon berets with the infantry pin and reddish-brown boots.
Distinct from all other soldiers of the IDF, Paratroopers wear a tunic and belt over the shirt. The IDF has three reservist paratrooper brigades (includes the 226) at any given time, consisting of personnel who served their mandatory time in the brigade, and who are mostly relatively recently discharged, aside from officers.
These are most likely the most highly trained reservist brigades in the IDF.
