And even worse HIT Taxila would initially receive Iranian ordered Mk3/4 British parts for their decaying fleet, which were unfit and were returned and most importantly M113 and future Al Tahla (variant of M113).

    Judging by the early handguard, location and the date, it must be Iranian stock (same as turkish ones).
    I know current Pak Army's stock looks like ours, with the all-plastic guard. Did Pak Army use older handguard ones?

    I know current Pak Army's stock looks like ours, with the all-plastic guard. Did Pak Army use older handguard ones?

    Yes they did.

    I see, interesting. But going back to the pic, it's from a journalist that followed some Muj from Iran crossing into Herat. That should be Iranian G3, testament to Mullah support for certain Muj elements. Hence why USSR supported Saddam so much during the war.

    Off course I said as much. The fact the fat mullah is aiming his Mauser it proof that these are people supported by Iran (and location). Just Making sure that nothing is taken out of context. This context screams Iran. And also photograph is known IRI linked reporter.

    Yeah I was just underlining it for others. The mullah setup is typical Shia hood tongue
    I imagine IRI as the war with Iraq progressed lost interest in Afghanistan.
