The United Arshan Federation's general duty uniform, commonly worn by military staff in officers or performing non-physical tasks.

The General Duty Uniform serves as the 'default' uniform worn by all personnel not operating in a battlefield, combat, or utility role, or not otherwise granted an allowance to wear other clothing due to their duties. The uniform has similar components to the Service Dress Uniform, with the only changes being in the jacket and insignia worn. Common nicknames for the uniform includes 'Blacks'.



General Duty Jacket

The General Duty Jacket is the same dark-gray color as the Service Dress Uniform, and is held closed using a zipper, similar in design to an early 21st century 'windbreaker'. The jacket has a 3/4-inch colored trim, matching the personnel's squadron color, following the edges of the cloth - The lower hem, zipper flaps, top of the collar, and cuffs of the sleeves. The right shoulder is accent-colored based on command tier but lacks this accent if the personnel lacks a command role.

Slacks and Shoes

The General Duty Uniform includes a pair of slacks, of a dark gray-black color matching the coat. A 3/4-inch trim, using the personnel's squadron color, follows the outer seams of the trousers. A belt, also matching the personnel's squadron color, is worn with a black buckle, though this is usually unseen as the duty jacket is long enough to hide the belt. The shoes follow similar regulation patterns to early 21st century United States regulations for male shoes - Black oxford style, undecorated and unperforated lace-up style shoes. The slacks and shoes are also worn with the Service Dress Uniform.


Insignia, Patches, and Pins

All insignia and patches are worn on the duty jacket. Along the left sleeve, from top to bottom, are the Unit Patch, Unit Name Patch, and Rank Stripes. Along the right sleeve, from top to bottom, are the UA Military Patch, Squadron Name Patch, and Rank Stripes. A nametag patch is stitched over the right chest, in approximately the same positioning as the Service Dress Coat. Rank insignia pip-pins are pinned to the right collar, while command insignia are pinned to the left collar. Ribbons and awards are not worn on the General Duty Uniform.
