    Steveo, I mentioned this in your other thread, but these aren't necessarily Airborne insignia. It is a common insignia, the current forces use the same, or similar, and trust me, they are not Airborne. My Police Commandos wore them, I would get a kick out of teasing them about it all the time. Not sure what the whole concept is behind wearing all this, but if you were to look at pics from there, you will see it more often than not.

    Your welcome, glad to be of help. And are u referring to the camo in the background on top of my turret? I might have more pics of it in use. i was told it was jordanian or syrian not kuwaiti? They just buy it in the local markets.

    Yhea thats the camo , the story going around is it was originally Kuwaiti , and was captured by Saddam's guys and brought back to Iraq in large numbers , and has been dribbling out since, but that could just be a story , it could be Jordanian or Syrian, I will see if my Inlaws can read the tags as the tags have all looked the same in every set I have seen .
