I will share some pics from Latvian army and National Guard (or Zemessardze, as it is called in native) here.

Original camo of Latvian Armed Forces (nicknamed `LATPAT` although it is not its original name) adopted in September 2006:

I see that they adopted the H&K G36 rifle but instead of that factory sighting system they have AimPoint Comp 3s on it has it's sighting system.

I wonder how those LADPAT BDUs are. The uniform cut seems pretty good. The first set of photos that camo has way to much white in it but that desert camo seems much better then even the US Army ACU pattern.

In the end, I think you standard National Guardsman is one well equip and bad ass soldier.

In fact it should be same camo pattern in ALL pictures. However, the very first images are from presentation of new uniform, so maybe it is so white because it was too new at the moment, while in other images it already had taken some use. However, the later uniforms could have slightly modified color set to fit the `desert environment` even better.

Thanks

On other hand - there are not very many Latvian soldiers (the active force is ~2 battalions), and standard uniform for National Guard still is US BDU `Woodland` (I will continue with images and You will see); only full-time servicemen (officers and some instructors) of National Guard have LATPAT.
