Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 30C

The Type 30C is a Star Army of Yamatai uniform that was introduced in YE 37. It consists of a regal blue ribbed turtleneck sweater worn with either cadet blue pants or a regal blue skirt and cadet blue tights. It is an updated version of the Type 30B Female Duty Uniform that incorporates the standard colors of the Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 35 that replaced the Type 30B.

Wear Instructions

The Type 30C duty uniform is considered an alternate for the Type 35 Duty Uniform and is worn in a similar manner as a “Class B Everyday” configuration. However, since the sweater does not support wrist rank, officers should wear their rank badge pin. The pin should be placed just below the piping on the left breast. The Type 30C is not authorized to substitute for the “Class A Formal” configuration of the Type 35 duty uniform. It is worn with boots.

Changes from the Type 30B

  • Colors match the color palette used with the Type 35 Duty Uniform
  • Now available in male versions (worn with light blue Type 35 Dress Pants or Type 22 Cargo Pants)
  • Shoulder color flash panels are no longer present
  • Rank pins, when worn, are in the traditional “heart” position, not centered.
  • Enlisted have arm rank sewn on the sleeve instead of a fleet patch.
  • Since this is a cold weather uniform, it should be worn with pants or a skirt and tights.
    • The Type 35 skirts can be worn with this, or the older Type 30 skirts as long as they are in the correct color and are not shiny. This means the Second Mishhuvurthyar War-era ankle-length skirts can be worn with it.
