Early Iraqi "Ragged Leaf" Camo Uniform
Dubbed the "ragged leaf" camo, this uniform pattern was around when the Iran Iraq War started in 1980, but it did not enjoy a very long service history when other patterns gradually phased it out around 1983. It is unknown exactly when it was introduced to the Iraqi Army, but it was likely in the 1970s, and the pattern is very similar to the East German flachtarnmuster camouflage. The uniform itself sports exposed buttons on the entire uniform and the fabric is a coarser material. Four non-pleated pockets adorn the tunic with another four on the pants. Rare is an understatement for this uniform.
