The Afghanka is a Russian military slang term for a field uniform system developed and issued by the Soviet Army in the early 1980s. The popular name of the uniform was derived from its prolific use during the Soviet war in Afghanistan.

The Afghanka began appearing in military units in the early 1980s during the Soviet war in Afghanistan, hence the name. The design of the jacket and trousers may have been based on similar patterns used by other Warsaw Pact armies such as the GDR. The soldiers found the new uniform to be very effective, especially in Afghanistan. Even without the liners in, a winter Afghanka is comfortably warm in temperatures of down to -20 °C. Another advantage of the winter Afghanka over the preceding Bushlat and Shinel greatcoat was the greatly enhanced mobility and increased number of pockets. Afghanka was issued alongside the Mabuta uniform, which is similar in shape and looks. Mobuta was used exclusively by the Spetsnaz and VDV, and was used alongside the much more famous Afghanka uniform.

Today the Afghanka design uniform is still in use by Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Belarus and Georgia.
