Not Clansman or Bowman. Not in US service anyway. The US doesn't use Bowman's. In US service they are AN/PRC-343 Personal Role Radios, similar but not identical to Bowman. The first photo shows an AN/PRC-148 Multiband Inter/Intra Team Radio (MBITR) in the Marine's hand. '148s are used by multiple US services. Also seen in photo one and photo two are PRC-343 radios. PRC-343s are used almost exclusively by the USMC. Available to the Army, but not fielded to any units.
