After watching Disney's "Aladdin" motion pictures, both the Pussycats and Zaleski brothers were curious, how could the characters from those films ride horses in such Middle Eastern outfit. Penelope had an idea - at their ranch in Texas, they could safely check performance of those and couple more clothes.

Mona volunteered herself to test selection of outfits our characters managed to collect during their missions, the variety included:
- harem outfit fashioned like the one worn by Princess Jasmine;
- winged hussar armour worn by Stan and Ian's ancestors living between 1600 and 1730;
- Mona's cowgirl fatigues, composed of jeans with Texan chaps, cotton shirt and cowboy boots;

- couple of historical cavalry uniforms, including Polish army wz.1936 worn by Stan and Ian's father, US Army uniforms worn by ancestors of Penny, Mona and Delilah, and Soviet Army uniforms made of low-quality cotton they took as trophy.

All those tests were performed on Mona's Appaloosa horse Bobby Hawkeye. It turned out that harem outfit is much better suited for bedroom than for riding, and that Soviet Army uniforms, regardless of pattern, aren't pleasant in wearing nor riding a horse. Hussar cuirass offered good protection, but Bobby wasn't accustomed to such weights - burden of armour made him exhausted. Mona did admit, that she feels most comfortable in saddle wearing her cowboy fatigues; though Polish and American Armies uniforms made good alternative for horse-riding outfit.

As you can see, those fatigues match her almost ideally.

Mona belongs to PAWS Inc.

TeeJay87Thanks, such uniforms like Mona is wearing were staple fatigues of our army before WW2:

- https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3b/Jozef_Pilsudski1.jpg

- https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/9/92/Polish_infantry_from_1939_%28renacting%29.PNG - actually those are infantrymen, but cavalrymen wore the same uniforms, just with different collar patches insignia and French M1916 "Adrian" helmets instead of our wz.31;

- https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/85/1935_Mundury_polskich_%C5%BCo%C5%82nierzy_01.jpg - uniforms from 1935, from left: lance corporal from 9th Horse Riflemen Regiment (field uniform) , corporal from light artillery regiment (evening uniform), plutonowy ( sergeant in the British Army) pilot NCO (evening uniform) , sapper (field uniform), lance corporal-radio operator (field uniform) ;

- https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/b/bc/1935_piechota_II_RP.jpg - another set like above, from left: infantry master sergeant (evening uniform), infantry sergeant (off-service uniform), plutonowy (infantryman, field uniform) and rifleman in field uniform;

- https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/1/1d/Podporucznicy_piechota_1933.png - two infantry subalterns in uniforms from 1933;

- https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/85/%C5%BBo%C5%82nierz_81_pp..jpg - corporal from 81st Infantry Regiment.


Before WW2, we had in the Polish Army separate rank names for enlisted and NCOs in certain army corps, just like in the British Army:

- gunner ( "kanonier" in Polish)  and bombardier (the same name in Polish) in our artillery;

- rifleman ("strzelec" in Polish) in rifle regiments;

- sapper in Engineer corps;

- troopers instead of privates, guard masters ("Wachmistrz", from German "der Wachmeister") and company masters ("Rotmistrz", from German "der Rittmeister") instead captains  in cavalry regiments.

TeeJay87From the same army like Penny is wearing here http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/TeeJay87/844592/Seven-Tonne-Polish-Pussycat and here http://www.fanart-central.net/pictures/user/TeeJay87/842967/2in1-September-Campaign-Penny-2012 , the only difference is that Mona is wearing summer cavalry uniform, while Penny has tank crewmen uniform (inside tank) and infantry standard uniform (with ViS and Suomi SMG).
