Desert Storm Question


Recommended Posts

the boonie cap s not so hard to find,i found mine in norway!!! and if you search on e bay

there will always be some for sale.

i forgot to take pictures of my boonie cap maybe next time.

 

btw if you have a spare alice pack cover in chocolate desert il trade you

for a pair of brand new nigth desert trousers size large regular.

 

and here is a picture of my flack jackets,the woodland ones are the ones you need inside

of your flack(pasgt) cover.

Wait, do I need a camo one inside or the OD one inside? Maybe if I find another one...

Andrew

Thanks for the pics. I didn't know that that it was a 2 part item. One more thing to look for. Is that your's?

Andrew

 

Yes, got it a fleamarket for a whopping $15.00 complete. Couldn't leave it behind for that price, so I decided to assemble a basic set for a 1991 Desert Storm GI as a time line piece. I also have an early PASGT kevlar helmet with desert cover, a booniehat and a pair of trousers but I still need a jacket and some LBE gear. I'm not really into this newer stuff, but if I come across it cheaply I'll usually buy some.

 

I think you might be able to find such a vest for $40-50.00, but having it shipped may be expensive due to the weight. Try to get it locally.

David,

Unfortunatly you can find them, but the budget of a 13 year old cannot handle that!

The OD one is an Vietnam-era M1969 vest (although they appeared as early as 1967) and is the predecessor of the PASGT vest. Look for an PASGT with 1980's date with Woodland camo, the M1969 is not correct for DS (although some may have still been in use at that time).

my camo flack vest comes from the us marines when they was here on exersice

back in the greate 1980s and 90s the green one is a 1950 us army flack vest

that was left here in 1970 after a nato exersice thumbsup.gif

Hello,

Well I did get my belt and suspenders, canteen, ammo pouches, flashlight, whistle ETC (Thanks Forum Support) last night so I put it on today. Everything worked except the following problems:

 

Put on LBE gear or pack first?

How do I attach the gas mask to me?

What goes on the outside of the pack to fill out the cover?

 

Plus, I need one more canteen (The ones I had did not have the hole for the gas mask straw). Thanks.

Andrew

What is that square box on your right thigh, and the square pouch on the port side of your buttpack?

The square box hanging is the D-Con box (or something like that) and the pouch is the Personal First Aid Pack. Thanks for the pics! They do help. I have the kit, but the pack is covering it up.

another trick to fill your alice pack are to fill it

with crumbled newspapers just to make it bigger

and its not heavy.

i use it on many bags in my display instead of

hiding cool gear in the alice pack.

Hello,

Sort of. I haven't filled it out, but I did attach the shovel. I haven't dressed out recently, so no new pics. :( . Will dress soon though (hopefully).

Andrew

 

Ooh yeah, one new addition...a plastic tote to put it all in.
