    I guess people don't really care about old rare spanish uniforms here... Sad
    one of the rarest sets of photos i ever found, which some amazing details of very rare uniforms...

    The old spanish para uniform is one of my holy grails, there's very few photos of the uniforms "in use"

    Whoa!! How did I miss all these photos?!? They're brilliant. It's going to take me a few hours to go through them all and look at the details. Which is a good thing Very Happy

    Notice that the picture of the guy with the orange Airforce Zapadores jacket has a non-regulation Army Para Brigade dress uniform arm badge on the pocket. Definitely shouldn't be there.

    And yeah, that's on my Holy Grail list too Smile

    Magnificent photos Danilo,

    Very interesting and rarely seen images of the beautiful Spanish patterns.

    The photo of the para uniform that all Spanish camo collectors drool over is particularly interesting.

    I notice that the para is wearing a BRIPAC beret, as well as the colored patch below the "rokiski".
    Believe I have seen at least 2 other photos of this uniform where the BRIPAC patch was in evidence.

    As this uniform was used by EZAPAC, does anyone know if it was also worn by members of BRIPAC, perhaps
    on a limited basis ?

    This version of the M62 uniform is among the rarest of Spanish uniforms; they certainly were not mass produced.

    Can anyone shed some light on this very interesting topic ?

    Although, maybe the last one ought to be posted in the Italian section? I love the use of camo on the Beretta AR-70's.
