M09021-0 - Red Army Shoulder Patch for Transport / Construction

This patch is worn on the left sleeve by Soviet army troops in Motorized Transport and Road Construction units.

The central design of this patch is a pair of wheels with steering linkage and steering wheel, all of which is winged. This is one of a series of patches utilizing a construction technique not found in the West. The design is "printed" on a thin wool base using a type of plastic instead of normal ink. The red star appears to be a separate piece of wool "glued" to the black wool by the application of plastic around the edge of the star. The patch is backed with a thin black cotton(?) cloth. These were used post 1969.
