The U. S. Army Air Force Type B-10 Intermediate Flight Jacket was developed as a replacement for both the leather A-2 and sheepskin B-6 Flight Jackets. The B-10 was a cloth adaptation of the US Navy G-1 Leather Jacket pattern with modifications. The B-10 Flight Jacket was the first cloth-shelled, alpaca fur-lined flying jacket of the USAAF, being standardized for service in July 1943. However, actual combat issue did not take place until late February 1944. The cloth-shelled jacket B-10 was lighter and more versatile than the previous leather jacket. And B-10 afforded fighter pilots far less bulk and considerably more comfort in their cramped cockpits.
