Initially only used in Afghanistan, the Afghanka uniform was in very short supply and was often issued to units rather than individuals and passed around as necessary for various duties. As more were produced, more were issued. By the end of the s it had become possible for everybody to be issued his own.
Individual soldiers began marking the collars of their uniforms with bleach. The soldiers found the new uniform to be very effective, especially in Afghanistan. Another advantage of the winter Afghanka over the preceding Bushlat and Shinel greatcoat was the greatly enhanced mobility and increased number of pockets. The Afghanka was initially issued to regular units of the armed forces in a khaki colour.
Although derived from a previous chemical-warfare uniform known as OKZK-D, the camouflage uniform made for VDV paratroopers in included many features from the Afghanka. Since then, various other uniforms evolved from the Afghanka in various camouflage patterns—such as VSR the standard field uniform of the Russian Armed Forces since , and later flora camouflage issued since , and many others. Belarus , Kazakhstan and Ukraine both currently issue Afghanka-cut uniforms in their own camouflage patterns.
The Soviet and Russian VDV model, made in either khaki, Butane, or VSR, lacked the lower patch pockets on the jacket as the blouse was intended to be worn tucked inside the trousers, to better accommodate the numerous harnesses used with a parachute.

Two Soviet soldiers in Afghanistan in the early s. The soldier on the left is wearing the Afghanka. A group of Soviet soldiers wearing the summer uniforms including the Afghanka.

These hats were also supplied to pro-Soviet governments around the world including those of Angola, Mozambique, Grenada and Nicaragua.

Unlike the earlier pattern this version features snaps or press-studs that allowed it be buttoned up on the side — much like an Australian slouch or bush hat.
