Here are some Iran-Iraq war pics in this thread. http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...s-Memorials%29
Hey everyone, new member here with an interest in middle eastern militaria. I see many Six Day, Yom Kippur and Lebanese war threads filled with pictures of Israeli soldiers, and sorting through to find pictures of Egyptian and Syrian soldiers is a pain, so I thought; why not make a thread dedicated solely to the Arab/Persian/non Israeli middle east armies. Pictures and videos of soldiers, training and gear from 1950-1991 welcome. I kind of want to keep it cold war era. I think all the way from Algeria to Turkiye to India can be included, simply because I am also interested in India/Bangladesh (as are many of you), and they were very involved in wars with Pakistan. So post away I guess! I have tons of pictures, so I'll be posting regularly here. Thank you!
Thanks! I am uploading a bunch of photos to photo bucket to post here, so i'll have some up later.
I will scan some pics later from Arab Armies of the Middle East Wars 1948–73 (1) and (2) by Osprey Publishing.
These books is full of pics for most Arab armies.
