    ITALY desert uniform (early version)

    Some sources will tell you that this set was basically only used by troops heading to Somalia in the 1990's, however this particular pattern WAS used in both Iraq & Afghanistan in the beginnings before vegetato was widely used...

    Here is set #1...

    this pattern was named Somalia. It was used before the operation in Somalia. It was used first after desert storm in a UN operation in Kurdistan named in italian AIRONE in may 1991 to august 1991.


    steven.. the wings in the set 2 are with velcro? because in the first time are usually to sew the wings on the jacket, in the velcro usually put the rank.
