To top it off, the pattern appears to be the first pattern Lithuanian camouflage used by the Iraqi 36 Commando. If this is the case, it is the first time I have seen this type body armor in use with them. The 36 Commando were involved in the fighting of the Second Battle of Fallujah (Op Phantom Fury and Operation Al-Fajr). The date of the picture fits the dates of the Second Battle of Fallujah.
from the same raid on fallujah main hospital

Yep, looks like it was used by them in 2004
