Octave, you're a tricker. Wouldn't have guessed it in a million years.

 

I have a piece of memorabilia from Cuba during that era in my collection. It's a Cuban flight suit worn by a Soviet pilot and taken back to the USSR after their deployment ended. The Soviets shipped over there with civilian clothes only and wore Cuban gear along with Soviet helmets and masks. The suit is a lightweight summer type, nowhere near the quality and durability of the Soviet suits, but probably ok for the Cuban climate.

To be honest my son stumped me with this, took me some time to find the answer
