Light Armor Soldiers are the weakest and most common soldiers in Lazarevic's army and can be easily defeated with melee. They are usually armed with the AK-47, FAL, .45 Defender or Micro-9mm, near the end of the game they will start using the 92-FS-9mm and M4. Sometimes they will use Riot Shields or man gun emplacements. They wear grey clothes, but in early promotional pictures of Uncharted 2 they were seen wearing grey and slightly orange emblems on the shoulders and near the end of the game their clothes will turn dark and some will use helmets.
