I just saw videos of Ethiopian Communist leader Mengistu Haile Mariam in full uniform.

Any information about the ranks used during that era?

Does anyone have any good photos and drawings of the Ethiopian communist era army and also the air force and navy from that era?

Interesting, though I surmise these were from Haile Selassie's era, not the Derg period.

Due to Ethiopia using a different calendar.

However, I don't know if they are prototypes.

I want to ask the source.
