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.

M113 of the U.S. Army (1/4th Infantry) on maneuvers in Hohenfels, Germany, 2015. The sand color of the vehicle is ill-suited to the landscape of the European winter.

M113 armored personnel carriers of the U.S. Army in 1985. Judging by the Autobahn signage, they are just west of Frankfurt am Main. Each vehicle is equipped with a large yellow lamp for visibility while moving among regular traffic. The first two vehicles appears to be M901 antitank guided missile launchers. Ahead of the missile launchers, another APC appears to be merging into the same traffic lane, illustrating the danger of moving slow, large armored vehicles on roads with much smaller and faster cars. The commanders in the last two APCs are wearing winter parkas, a welcome article of clothing when one is exposed to the wind on the exterior of a moving vehicle.

Cheers
