    I had the good fortune of acquiring a cap to complete my uniform I got awhile back, albeit a different shade.

    Excellent find! This is one of the few patterns I really regretted parting with when I sold off all my South American stuff. I had a couple variants, but the blurry one was my favorite.

    Not sure about this one, but the info that came with it said "Peruvian troops display captured Ecuadorian uniform"

    Some nice new photos just surfaced recently from the National Archives of some Ecuadorian commandos training with the 193rd Infantry during Blue Horizon 1986, showing some of the different variants and colorations as well as some 80's Ecuadorian and US uniforms, equipment, and gear.

    Great reference pics! I wonder how old they are - the pic of them rope crossing the river I saw in a book about 25 years ago now? The helmet covers look to be a different tiger pattern altogether - perhaps an earlier version? It almost looks like a South Vietnamese pattern without the red!

    Aside from the high quality shots of the Ecuadoran uniforms, the ones of the US SF advisors is also interesting. Some of them, at least, are wearing the discontinued slant pocket jungle uniforms instead of the Transitional type used from the late 1970s until the early 1980s. Once again proving that Special Forces can wear whatever they darned well please Wink
