    Unknown Egypt/Middle East camouflage?

    Post by yalla-yalla on Sat Apr 15, 2017 11:47 am

    Hi,
    This is a photo of an Egyptian Army officer in 1974. The uniform is like no Egyptian uniform I've ever seen. I'm thinking it may be a gift from a fellow Arab officer serving on the Egyptian front during that time (Morocco, Kuwait, Libya, Algeria, all had troops in Egypt.)
    Wish the photo were better quality.
    Thanks in advance!

    Wow. I think I have trousers in this pattern. Or used to. I can't remember if I still have it or not. The colors were very bright with a dominate lime green color and that light color is pretty much white. I never knew where it was from. I'll see if I can locate it.

    Reminds me of the Red Dawn movie camo.

    Man, I really do need to see if I still have the trousers. I'm 95% sure it's the same as this jacket. I was told it was Sudanese. Certainly it was cut like an East African uniform in that it was for someone tall and VERY skinny. Given that Egypt borders Sudan, and there is some documentation of uniform sharing, I'm thinking the description I was given is plausible.
