"Diefendi la pasta fabbrica!"
Italian Deserto Mimetico pattern was implemented in 1991 as a desert
variation of the Roma 90 woodland pattern. Designed specifically for
troops deploying to the United Nations mission in Somalia, the pattern
became synonymous with the Italian Army's involvement in the legendary
1993 Battle for Checkpoint Pasta a few months before the events of
"Black Hawk Down" in Mogadishu.
