dt509er,

 I wondered about that as well. I suppose China probably makes those now and anyone can buy the originals or a reasonable knock-off thereof. The thing about these guys that struck me was inspired by ZZ Top ... "what really knocked me out were [the] cheap sunglasses"! I wonder if those are some kind of "dress uniform" issue; the metal rims look like they could reflect sunlight in such a way as to be seen from long off. I guess they haven't heard of U.S. military-issue "birth control" eyeglasses yet

Cheers

Zimbabwean soldiers outside Harare. The infantry fighting vehicle may be broken down and being readied to be towed by the armored recovery vehicle behind it.
