    Here's a couple of Georgian uniforms I picked up, one several years ago and the other just last week.
    First, a Multicam copy ACU uniform, I believe Chinese made but all the tags were removed. Also suffered an unfortunate pen-splosion in the pocket.
    This one features English insignia for an infantryman of the Ministry of Defence, and was acquired by a US serviceman on a joint exercise somewhere around 10ish years ago, maybe a few years sooner.
    Photos seem to show they replaced this ACU style coat with one with straight chest pockets sometime around the mid 2010's, though I don't know if the trousers were changed. Could also perhaps be some sort of barracks cut.
    Non-deployed personnel usually wear Georgian script insignia, and these older Multicam ACU type uniforms all seem to have had a bad knack for fading very badly.

    And here is an unissued, crisp Georgian woodland digital uniform.
    It is factory new, still with tailor's chalk markings on various panels of fabric and several of the buttonholes are still unopened.
    Strangely it came with Multicam insignia in Georgian script, whiles photos seem to show they had both full color and woodland digital insignia, so I don't know if these insignias are original.
    The tape says "Armed Forces", but I'm unable to translate the unit patch, seems to be some sort of rocket/missile artillery brigade.

    They had quite the hodgepodge in 2008, similar to how Ukraine was in 2014. Last two photos are 2010 and 2014.

    I really like these uniforms due to the badging.

    From what I can tell there are at least two Multicam uniforms:

    1st Model = 4 pocket with 2 chest and 2 arm in BDU style
    2nd Model = standard US ACU style

    On top of this there are some pretty wild color variations. Most likely due to frequent changes in suppliers, which is fairly normal for countries in Georgia's GDP range.

    My favorite is this one:
    Georgian Uniforms Dsc01516

    Nice view of several variants in use at one time:

    When my son finished his Marine Corp Active duty enlistment he did his Reserve obligation in a Marine Corp Anti Terrorist Unit. He was sent to Georgia to train them in Airport Security. His unit was told to bring anything of Americana to trade with the Georgian soldiers as they were glad to be free of the Soviet Union and wanted to connect with the US any way they could. He brought home a bunch of the sleeve patches but no uniforms as he said at the time that they were wearing the old US Woodland pattern and I had plenty of those here. If I recall his active duty was 2004-2007 and then 2 years of active duty reserves 2007-2009. He translated a bunch of the patches and I wrote it on masking tape and stuck it on the back of the patches. I have most all of that stuff in a storage unit right now.

    Great pic Steve, interesting that their tapes just say "GEORGIA". There seems to be an even larger variation in insignia.
    Hawkeye, if you ever have the time to post any pics of those patches I'd love to see them. Georgia was just starting to replace their hodgepodge of woodland BDUs and mixed older camouflage uniforms for the woodland MARPAT copy when the war broke out in 2008.
    There are also pics of guys who were deployed to Iraq still wearing their US supplied DCUs when they got emergency redeployed back to Georgia in '08.
