    This pattern appeared in '91 , first seen in  use in Somalia,  and  used in Afghanistan by  early rotations.

    There is a photo in the San Marco thread  of this ( Italy ) section that shows two Italian naval personnel and a soldier wearing the sometimes  called " Somalia " pattern.

    Vegetato patterns, both temperate, and desert began to be issued around 2004.

    Some Italian army and airforce   SF units also  wore khaki BDU - like uniforms before  Vegetato patterns became standard issue.

    This uniform has been used during OEF/OIF but it's a little different from the one used in Somalia. I'm collecting some more info and pics and will get back to you.

    I friend on mine brought a set of these home from OEF when he was there with the 82d ABN DIV in the early years. Tom

    From what I gathered there are 2 versions of this uniform, an M90, and an M92.
     This uniform is  an M92 .
