The Libyan Army has 3 types of uniforms.. plain green jumpsuits like our Air Force wears only.... Green. Sometimes with a green trench coat.
Sand Brown worn by females for ceremonial purposes, blue and grey for combat (to wear this you must be a sexy virgin and a part of the super elite
female virgin body guard, and no I'm not joking)
Green camo which is the other Libyan combat uniform.
No frikin idea why no uniform in Libya blends in with sand.. they all wear a form of green..
The rebels are wearing those uniforms because the actual Libyan Army defected with rebels, thus they kept their own uniforms.
The other rebels, those without guns usually, took the extra uniforms and what weapons they could find from conquered Army Depots.
In short... no, we didn't give them anything so far. And most contracts in Libya were with French and Italian companies, a few German, and prior to
that, 2003 and before, Russian/USSR.
