Ah, the pride of Niyazhov, the Turkmenbashi (and off-his-rocker, whimsical, cult state despot).
Kyrgyzstan in their latest, Kazakhstan style camo.

Really nitpicky detail fix on the Albanian SKS "July 10 rifle" version of the Chinese Type 56 carbine. The handguard is extended, the spike bayonet is blued (unlike the Chinese) and the whole thing is covered in gaudy orange shellac, instead of red varnish.
Fear the power of Albania! The rising force that no one will see coming! How can the German, Russian, American, and Arab Nasserite/Ba'athist Eagles compare to the might of the Albanian Eagle!
That detail has kept you awake at nights Tanelorn. I can tell
Did they use one of those at the shootout at the Central Committee? (obscure reference, see: https://www.nytimes.com/1982/01/03/world/us-aides-suspect-albanian-premier-was-killed.html))
It turns out that the Egyptians still make significant use of their iconic scrambled eggs camo and legitimately use red bakelite mags with their Maadi AKMs, Also moved the bipod under the RPDs sights.
I'd heard that Abdel Gamal Nasser got major flack from Islamic clerics in Egypt for his new flag in the first place, because apparently, Islamic law forbids using any image of humans or animals as iconography or symbolism - since you brought up "scrambled eggs."
Current Algerian uniforms. They use an olive/russet brushstroke design. Special forces use the same with an olive/purple-brown combo instead. The republican guard have a woodland/ splinter thing, the difference is barely visible even in photos.
@Patine : That's interesting.
Fiat G.91 Gina. The Italian counterpart to the Douglas A4, more or less.
Starting in 1958, Italy operated 31 Fiat G.91, 97 Fiat G.91R,103 Fiat G.91T/1 and 65 twin engined G.91Y. Italy retired them in 1995.
Starting in 1960, by 1970 the Luftwaffe fleet consisted of 310 G.91 R/3 and 40 G.91T. The last G.91 were officially retired in 1982 and replaced by the Alphajet.
In 1964-65 the first two (#098 and #109 of four, incl. #090?) G.91R4 were evaluated by the Greek air force. 25 each were to have been delivered to Greece and Turkey but the order was cancelled (in favour of the Northrop F5A) and 40 of these were delivered to the Luftwaffe instead.
Starting in 1966 Portugal received those 40 ex-German G.91R/4s which had originally been built for Greece and Turkey. These saw extensive action in Africa and were followed by a total of 70 R/3s and 26 T/3s (also ex-German) in the late 70s, although not all of these entered service. Portugal phased out the last of its G.91s in 1993.
I made a revell (or maybe tamiya, its a long time ago) g91 model kit back when I was kid. Your version is top notch tanelorn!
Thanks G! My first one was a red arrow Bae Hawk...
@Thorvald of Lym There was even a special version planned for Norway, the G.91N with larger fuel tanks. It didn't materialize either...
More Bae Hawks. RAF lineup. The last one is Swiss.
And the Commonwealth lineup of long beak hawks: Australia, Bahrain, Canada, India and South Africa
(More in the works -the original roundels were made by Typhoon, I will add your sig in the final version)
Malaysia and let's call it a night.
And almost the last part, UAE, Jordanian (ex-Abu Dhabian), Omani, Kuwaiti, Saudi, Kenyan and more Indonesian hawks.
