    "the desert camo covers on the first photo with the Egyptian soldiers lined up behind a armored personnel carrier looks almost like the French Desert camo pattern they wore during Desert Storm but the French version has bigger dark brown spots than the Egyptian desert camo"


    I have a feeling the Egyptians might well have based their uniform on the French Daguet pattern, which I am a great fan of.

    I find that large parts of the Middle East and Africa don't really care much about the uniformity of their armed forces, nor about buying them state of the art protection gear. Sometimes it is even possible to see a shift in allegiance and / or supplier of arms and equipment (Soviet <-> USA) present in the gear issued to their armies.

    What is happening with Egypt is a real shame. A country so rich in history and culture, tearing itself apart.

    But nice pictures non the less, although it is a sad occasion they have been taken in. I don't hope Egypt end up anything like Libya or even Syria. It would break my heart to witness a destruction of cultural heritage sites like the ones in Syria.

    Egyptian Republican Guards wearing a mixture of helmets, some appear to be West German police helmets? possibly the M40 / 53 or the M54 Border Guards type helmet?

    Yes JC, I would agree that the Syrian soldier has a Russian Ssh-68 steel helmet, I compared the helmet to these close up photos and the Syrian Colonel has a netted Ssh-68 and the Syrian Commando also has a netted Ssh-68

    it appears the Stalnoy Shlyem 68 was a common helmet in the Syrian military, Ive seen numerous photos of the helmet in use by the Syrians, they also used lots of Wz50 steel helmets from Poland.

    Default Syrian M56

    Syrian soldiers during the Gulf War 1991 era

    the M56 Stahlhelm was used by Egypt, Syria, Iraq , Turkey

    and maybe more? others have told me they have seen tan painted M56 helmets brought back from Desert Storm in army museums.
