Among the trove of never-before-seen photographs and documents rescued from Muammar al-Qaddafi's intelligence ministry buildings and his personal compound by Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director of Human Rights Watch, and re-photographed by freelance photojournalist Michael Brown, are these rare images of the colonel's war machine. From Soviet-era tanks to high-tech attack helicopters to paramilitary shock troops to Qaddafi in his war room, it's a unique glimpse into a martial country. Foreign Policy invites readers to help us identify some of the individuals and events in these photographs; please leave comments below.
