    Cool photos of Mercenaries in Africa (Executive outcomes)

    I gathered really cool photos. Photos of mercs are quite uncommon and it's too narrow topic that nobody really bothered with. But I on other hand, love it because you'd find band of macho guys, young to old. Diversity of equipment. Etc...

    Following photos are from: http://www.konstipation.com/stuff/eo/

    The following photos are quite interesting because of their some kind of decorated rank badges, etc.... Can anyone tell what they are? And what origins? I'm thinking South Africa.

    Executive Outcomes operators are who most (if not all) of these guys are. Very interesting company to say the least.

    Not trying to get this off track but......I think we may have found Captain Lou Albano (RIP) in his younger years.

    LOL Arch.

    Thanks for link. Here's more links about it.

    http://www.globalsecurity.org/military/world/para/executive_outcomes.htm

    http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Executive_Outcomes

    The open source references contained in this resource guide pertain to the recently defunct South Africa based mercenary corporation Executive Outcomes (EO) which operated as "mining and oil industry shock troops."

    This company also done some works such as protecting mining field.

    Oh Also, it just hit my head. In movie "Blood Diamonds", they talked about Executive Outcomes.

    There's a guy in a local VFW post that looks almost exactly like that merc on the right in that photo. But I'm pretty sure he was a Marine, though. Wink

    Hello
    The DPM is identical than that Al Venter wear
    For the woodland, Santiago think it is Centre Afrique, because the label
    For me, it is not
    The set have same colors than the mercenary wear
    And another jacket find in my town, with different colors
    I think all of this picture are scanned from the book of Al Venter "war dog"
