    Those are excellent finds, thank you so much for posting them. The DANA were perhaps the most elusive units during the conflict and as far as I am aware those of the first pictures of Libyan M109s out there!

    I have put a couple of articles together on my Esoteric Armour blog which include these great finds:

    Libya M109

    Libya DANA

    Now if we could only find some more photographs of that M577/BMP1 improvisation!

    These pics leave me speechless!

    With such an ridiculous amount of firepower, G-Man could have won the war waaaaay before it even began.

    I felt the same when I saw crate after crate of thermobaric RPGs and modern AKs being carried away by rebel forces from Libya's depots.

    Not that I would side with any of the fighting fractions but the incompetence of the COs and XOs is astounding beyond words.

    Mali already felt the effects of well equipped (from G's ****nals) Touareg and their islamofaschist "allies" - North Africa, your clusterf***k years have just begun....

    Thanks to everyone for posting these great pictures and descriptions!

    Libyan security forces head to a compound which had been taken over by an armed group in Tripoli September 23, 2012. Libya's army on Sunday ordered rogue armed groups in and around Tripoli to leave state and military premises or be ejected by force, apparently seeking to capitalize on the withdrawal of militias from Benghazi and Derna. *******/Anis Mili

    I know it's a detail but I wonder if these uniforms are genuine US ACU's or Asian copies? To me, they look authenthic..






    This uniform on the right will normally be the new standard camo pattern for Libyan forces, it's the traditionnal libyan cut shirt with an asian copy of the desert marpat for the camo pattern.

    I believe those are US MARPAT, sold to Egypt and than provided to Libyan rebels.

    Unfortunately, it seems that Libya is turning into something between Lebanon and Somaliya...

    Libyan Army forces use their vehicles to form a checkpoint at the northern approach to the Libyan city of Bani Walid, some 170km (106 miles) south of Tripoli, October 28, 2012. *******/Ismail Zitouny

    Fear of just this is what keeps stupid and vicious dictators in power. Historically, most countries undergoing armed revolutions take years to stabilize afterwards. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russian_Civil_War) We can only wait and hope that something better emerges.

    It seems that Iraq example is now being used for everything. Iraq was sectarian civil war with presence of nearly two hundred thousand foreign troops on the ground. Neither of those conditions are in Libya.

    That's the point.

    For a small country of 5 millions without any major sectarian or cultural divisions, the persistent state of anarchy, the presence of at least 200 different militias that are still not under the government control, and a weak army with a size of arround 5000 to 10 000 men, poorly trained and lightly equiped, the current situation is objectively quite worrying.

    Firefighters hose down a vehicle after an explosion in front of a police station Benghazi November 4, 2012. A car bomb exploded on Sunday in front of of the central Hadayeq police station in Benghazi, injuring three police officers in the latest in a series of attacks on security officials in Libya's second largest city. *******/Esam Al-Fetori
