Star Army Belt, Type 35

The Type 35 Pistol Belt is a pistol belt used by the Star Army of Yamatai.

Design

The Type 35 belt is jet black (very dark gray) with a rectangular metallic gold brass buckle and has a holster for the soldier's sidearm, which fits the Nekovalkyrja Service Pistol, Type 33.

The belt has an optional secondary strap that hangs down below the belt, which is also connected to the holster. This secondary strap is useful for soldiers with a curved figure, as it helps the pistol account for the shape of wider hips. See the illustration below:

Usage

The Type 35 Belt is worn over the Type 35 Jacket as part of the Type 35 Duty Uniform. It is not intended to be used for pants; for example, it is too wide to be used in belt loops the Type 35 Dress Pants.

The pistol belt is worn horizontally, straight across the waistline. Most male soldiers wear the holster directly on the belt whereas most females tend to use the secondary strap. The holster is worn lower on in the secondary strap configuration and should be attached to both the belt and the strap, not just one.

History

The Type 35 belt is essentially a standardized version of the male belt used with the original Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 22 and its successor, the Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 30. It became part of the Star Army's standard issue equipment in YE 35 as part of the Star Army Duty Uniform, Type 35. It also replaced the Star Army Belt, Female, Type 22.
