    I bought a set of the above Zaire camo from Southern African Militaria a few years back. Mine is a FAZ 86 and has two slits cut above the right breast pocket for para wings. I must say this is an incredibly rare pattern.

    The mercenaries training the Zaire troops wear a Yugoslav type Puzzle pattern camo overall. Did Yugoslavia have such overalls in service? I'm well aware of the Tiger Stripe and Woodland overalls, so I would be surprised if they did not have one in their Puzzle pattern. Yet I don't think I've ever seen one outside of pictures like these (I have a RAIDS which shows more pictures like this).

    Excellent picture! Thanks.

    I have more of the Zaire pictures in an old RAIDs to compare against the above picture, if I can find that magazine! I think these ones pictured are a little different design and the colors are certainly of the later (darker) type, so I don't think these are the same exact type of coveralls.

    Here is a photo of some Zaire rebels.

    caption for the photo:
    "Zairian rebel troops relax and listen to the radio near the front lines in north eastern Zaire, near Erengati, 370 km north of Goma, Monday, Dec. 9, 1996. Rebel troops have been fighting government soldiers for six weeks in eastern Zaire sparking a masive retreat by government forces who have left a path of destruction in their wake. (AP Photo/Ricardo Mazalan)"

    Gilles i think this will interest you, the guy in the far back in the right is wearing one of the camos you couldn't classify... at least we can say is legit.

    The drawing of the pattern of the Zaïrois soldier is a little different of my jacket but the cut of garment is identical
