Afghan Northern Alliance Lizard Camouflage Set


Recommended Posts

After a lengthy wait, I was finally got one of my "holy grail" items in yesterday.   A used set of Afghan Northern Alliance Lizard camo set and a new lizard M-65.    These were used very early on and not many survived.

  Very rare as the attrition rate was very high due to heavy usage in the early days of the war.

Just curious why two of the fighters are wearing Soviet Russian belt buckles?

There was a lot of Soviet equipment left over after the Soviet withdrawal of Afghanistan in 1988.  The Afghans just used what was left.

  Some years back, I bought a very used Soviet leather belt with a Tokarev holster direct from a 5th Special Forces Group veteran.  The belt and holster were worn by his Northern Alliance counterpart in the early days of the Enduring Freedom.  I'll try to dig it out and post it here.

great set of camos. I also have seen a lot of the Russian buckles and gear used as there were a lot of left overs to be found.
