Now that's just mean.  lol
I am thinking in the mean time, the current modern Australians might work for in a pinch. 
I personally an getting tired of waiting for some one to come out with 2000+ IDF and ordered a section of empress British Squaddies. And I am going to see about adding some Mitznefet helmet covers with a few other items and see how it works out.   

Without looking into it too deeply I suspect the Skirmish Sangin Australians/Kiwis would probably work or at least make decent proxies as they have the older style Steyr/ F88. BTW the old Eureka ( Kriegspiel) Australians for Timor make good Malaysian proxies and they have the advantage of being smaller in stature, like the real item.

Diversity is a good thing but I can't see much of a market for the Irish Army. Save for being occasionally shelled by the Israelis in Lebanon and ambushed in the Congo back in the 1960s they've done sod all since independence.  File alongside Switzerland and Luxembourg.

The Irish actually get about a bit... their 'recent' postings within the UN include; Central America, Russia, the former Yugoslavia, Cambodia, Lebanon, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait, Namibia, Western Sahara, Liberia and East Timor.

Someone more knowledgeable might prove me wrong, but I also think Steyr-equipped Aussie/Kiwi figures will do the trick... for me they would anyway.

As my father was fond of saying, they also serve, those who only stand and wait.

I think it was a detachment of their Rangers in Timor Leste, I suspect that for the most of the rest they supplied observers. Vital work, it's true but probably not the best basis for a range of dedicated minis.

I always find it ironic that the main activity of the DF is peacekeeping, when all my family do anything but. Maybe there's an exam to get in.

Apparently the old M-47s, M-48s, and M60s are stilling going strong in Iran, And they are using them to fight against ISL/ISIS..etc
"Peace" is that brief, glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading.
