    Camouflages of the Libyan Conflict

    Post by Camo_fiend on Tue Mar 08, 2011 12:38 am

    I've been seeing a lot of photos coming out of Libya lately, and the sheer vastness of camouflage patterns being employed by both pro and anti-government forces is astounding. I've compiled a few photos showing all the different uniforms I have seen thus far. If anyone has any to add, please do so!


    Can't quite tell, but looks like a dark chocolate chip pattern.


    6 & 3 colour desert camo, as well as an M81 variant.


    What appears to be UCP... photo quality leaves a bit to be desired, though.


    Dark chocolate chip variant.


    M81 variant.


    Chocolate chip style pattern with what appears to be only one shade of brown.


    Blue chocolate chip.


    3-colour desert and an unknown pattern. Interesting to note that the soldier in the foreground doesn't appear to be of Arab descent.


    More M81 variants.


    Unknown blue camo.


    Another blue camouflage... kind of resembles DPM?


    Another photo of blue chocolate chip.


    What appears to be a 4-colour chocolate chip variant.


    Sumpftarn variant. I believe this is the locally-produced variety.


    Dark blue M81 variant.


    Mullets never seem to go out of style. lol!


    Another shot of the sumpftarn in use.


    This was too cool not to post.


    The camo worn by the guy holding the RPG on the right looks a lot like the Hungarian "Pakistani" camo uniform, but I'm not sure...


    Really dark blue/urban M81 variant on left.

    Did the UCP pattern is the new camouflage of the new army?

    Lots of different patterns! However, it seems the common types are:

    Chocolate Chip
    Green Chocolate Chip
    Blue Chocolate Chip
    Woodland

    Add to this another half dozen that show up in more than one picture, probably a dozen that show up only once.

    BTW, I just got a coverall in the Green Chocolate Chip yesterday. I believe it is Libyan. Manufacture's tag says it was made in Italy, which would make sense.
