    Good finds! What you have is the quite rare 1st Model (4 colors) and current issue 3rd Model (3 colors). The 2nd Model is in the same cut as 3rd Model but with the colors of 1st Model. As I understand it the 2nd Model is the rarest as it was simply using up existing cloth and there weren't many made.

    The rare Iraqi 36th Special Forces uniform is based on 1st Model, both cut and cloth. Similar colors but not exact.

    BTW, the colors of your 1st Model are not faded by the looks of it. That's pretty much the way it is supposed to look Very Happy

    Good luck finding the 2nd Model Smile I got both my 1st and 3rd Model uniforms directly from a member of the Lithuanian Special Forces who did tours in both Iraq and Afghanistan. He said only one small bunch of soldiers were issued the 2nd Model before stocks were exhausted. Which is why he didn't receive one even though he did his two tours without much of a gap inbetween. He certainly wasn't able to get me one Sad

    Gilles,

    Very nice!! You have a 2nd Pattern and a 3rd Pattern. And in very good condition too! Lucky man Wink

    Vicka,

    Are you sure about that? I sorta see 1/2 of the cross, but not really the full double cross. There are some other hard edges elsewhere in the pattern, so might this not be coincidence?

    OK!

    Nice pics too. Ironically, I'm more interested in the shot of the Croat's left arm than anything else Smile

    Camo uniforms from Lithuania have dried up lately due to new laws .

    The jacket  is the more common of the desert types, but I have not seen shorts before.

    Thanks JD..

    This country does have quite a few very nice patterns.

    I missed out on the last Lithuanian deset uniform on eBay last year. No more have been offered since..

    Lithuanian military uniforms can no longer be shipped out of Lithuania.

    They have now strict laws, you have to pay massive fines if you sell or own current lithuanian army uniforms as a civilian in Lithuania. And since the Ukraine-crisis they became more strict and repressive.

    I had always wondered why it was so easy, and for a while cheap, to get brand new desert uniforms. Compare that with Lithuania and Estonia, both heavily controlled and supplies deliberately kept to about what they need. Now I guess Lithuania is following suit.

    Recent arrival.

    I believe this is the 3 type of first desert pattern; the so called " yellow pattern".

    1st type has a completely different cut; more like a BDU with slanted top pockets.
    2nd type is almost identical to 3rd type, but lower  pockets have exposed buttons.  There are also some minor upper and arm pockets zipper differences on some of the 2nd types.

    This( 3rd ) type was made from leftover material from the  2 types of  first desert pattern.  Interior pocket on this type is made of woodland type material..

    Very nice!! I like the 4 color type much better than the 3 color type, though the zipper cut is better.

    The only one I've ever seen with exposed button pockets is the one at the very top of this thread. I don't know what to make of it because the previous model had covered buttons and so did the standard production. And if the exposed button type was a very early model one would think the surplus 4 color cloth would have been made in that design and not the standard production.

    Maybe the exposed button type isn't really it's own version, but is instead a factory variation, a cheaper "homeguard" variant like Estonian variants, or maybe even a trial model. Until there's some indication what this variation is I personally am sticking to thinking of these uniforms as 1st and 2nd Models, with 2nd Model being in both 3 and 4 colors.
