Straight Fit · HA(L)-3 squadron
These straight fit Maharishi Original Snopants feature a hand embroidered SeaDragon motif, inspired by the Helicopter Combat Support Squadrons of the Vietnam war.
One unit named Seawolves, aka Helicopter Attack Squadron (Light) 3 or HAL-(3), featured a wolf yielding a trident; the U.S. Navy adopted the three pronged spear, leaning on ancient symbolism and that was the weapon of Poseidon, the God of the Sea. Classical Western mythology, so often overlaps with Hinduism, who's Lord Shiva is also always depicted with Trishula, Sanskrit for ’triple-spear’. The original Seawolves logo added the Ace of Spades representing Death and the red and yellow colours of the flag of South Vietnam.
