    I don't have much yet sadly, shame as Peru has some really interesting uniforms and kit!
    Starting with a basic, appears to be unissued 2014 dated AMAPAT coat with some factory pre-sewn insignia.
    From photos it appears there's quite a bit of color variation to this pattern. I read somewhere it was developed by amalgamating the color spread of several aerial photos of various geographic locations of Peru.

    A very cool Peruvian Marines large geometric pattern jacket, with Paramarine badge and "Infanteria de Marina" large tape sewn and riveted? above the pocket.
    It's also missing a name tape over the other pocket.

    Photo of a nurse getting ready to jump qual, allegedly from 1966, which would be the earliest date of the geometric pattern in use.

    Another allegedly from the same year: "Pedro Pablo León García fulfilling his mandatory military service in the 3 de Octubre Parachute Infantry Battalion No. 39 for the year 1966."

    The earliest verifiable year is 1968; these are from a funeral for a Major Castillo in 1968. Note the snap closures instead of buttons on the uniforms, and matching helmet covers. Thanks to squintingactivist on IG for sharing these.

    Thanks for the great photos..

    I remember watching the evening news and seeing Manuel Noriega wearing these uniforms.
