    Still a better pattern than UCP…

      My thoughts exactly. And I bet no pockets were lined in the selection and fielding either.

    When you absolutely have to blend in with a pile of trash.

    there’s nothing like warfare in countries where life is cheap

    Reminds me of Cookie’s canned goods camo uniform in Beetle Bailey (God, does that date me!?).

    Blends amazingly well with other shitbagflage from around the world, cheflage, castroflage, aminflage, and mutabeflage.

  7. Rifle is a G1 variant of the FN FAL – detachable muzzle device is giveaway

    • Mitchell Fuller says:

      The right arm of the free world. 7.62.

      • Agentofwrath says:

        Still think its a Stgw 58. IIRC the metal handguard with integral bipod was peculiar to the Austrian FAL variant.

    Goes under the category of “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should” fashion.

    I made that same hat in band camp, paper mache

    First of all … it is not camouflage …
    It is in fact an outfit used during political rallies for UNITA. Circa 1975/1976.
    At that stage Portugal was “taken over” by Marxist/Socialist leadership and decided to hastily vacate all African “colonies”.
    UNITA was Henry Kissinger’s favorite in that part of the world. Partly because of his insistence South Africa entered the fray in Angola, supporting “Spyker” and UNITA.
    During 1975-1976 Operation Savannah, the “movements” loyal to Marxism was driven back (as far North as Luanda). South African soldiers (and some UNITA fighters) did a fantastic job of breaking up FAPLA and FNLA (and Angolan) forces …
    Sadly, the Americans decided at the (as per usual) very last moment to withdraw their naval support outside Luanda. This was the start of the fall of Angola to Soviet, Cuban and DDR interests.
    South Africa had to withdraw their ground forces as they could no longer count on US military support.
    Today, most of Africa is lost to the “west”.
