The United States Space Force (USSF) Guardian service dress prototype has been unveiled. 

The uniform was revealed during the Air Force Association, Space and Cyber Conference by the US Chief of Space Operations.

General John W 'Jay' Raymond, brought two Guardians on stage to model the "modern, distinctive and professional" uniform.

It consists of a dark blue coat with an upturned collar and closes with a diagonal row of six buttons on the right side of the tunic.

The six silver buttons on the coat prototype represent the service's establishment as the sixth branch of the US armed forces. 

The buttons, on the right side of the tunic, bear the Space Force's delta logo, with mirror-finish US pins worn on the collar, and a silver braid near the cuffs.

It was also announced that the Space Force's physical training uniforms are currently undergoing wear testing.

The PT uniform includes black shorts with a version of the service's delta logo in white and a grey T-shirt with the words "Space Force" in white on the back. 

For their combat uniform, Guardians will continue to wear the Operation Camouflage Pattern uniform.

At the conference, Chief Master Sergeant of the Space Force, Roger A Towberman, announced enlisted rank insignia, featuring deltas and elongated hexagons – another nod to the USSF's sixth-service status.

General Raymond said the Space Force now has 6,490 Active-duty Guardians, with more than 500 enlisting directly into the Space Force.

This year it became the 18th member of the Intelligence Community.
