Each jumpsuit seen in America carries the insignia of the Chinese 127th Iron Division on the right sleeve and has two red stars on the collar.

Chinese jumpsuit[edit | edit source]
The original Chinese jumpsuit is worn by Chinese commandos when the Failsafe terminal is activated during the Tranquility Lane quest. It can not be looted from their bodies, as they will merely be rendered unconscious when killed.

Notes[edit | edit source]
Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]
It is a modified Zhongshan Suit (translation "Sun Yat-Sen suit", founder of the Chinese Nationalist Party). Mao Zedong has always been associated with this suit in Western press and thus it was incorrectly named after him Mao Suit in the English language. The suit was popular in the early 20th century in China. it is consider the standard/symbolic attire for the Chinese revolutionary forces that fought to create a Chinese Republic, as such use by both the Chinese Communist and Chinese Nationalist during their contest for legitimacy with the Chinese public. Even today, during special occasion, the Chinese president can be seen wearing this type of Chinese attire.
