A couple of gear displays


Recommended Posts

Spray painted PBPV II armored vest with an unknown London Bridge Trading Company "over vest". The "over-vest" attaches to the shoulder straps and has velcro on the back that attaches to the velcro on the front of the vest. I have a friend contacting the owner of LBT to see if I can get an exact model number for this "over-vest".

Side view. There is an odd long laynard that is hanging from the side. I think this may have been attached to some sort of weapon, perhaps an M4.

Here is a picture of a USAF CCT wearing the LBT "over-vest" in Afghanistan. Thanks for finding this one, Merc. :thumbsup:

This is a well used Afghan made plate carrier used by a US Special Forces soldier in Afghanistan. This one has been modified with the addition of glint tape squares sewn to both shoulder straps.

American Body Armor (ABA) black modular vest that was popular with the US Special Forces back in the 90's. This version would be the type used by US Army Special Forces or US Navy SEALs. The one I posted above, due to the chest strap, would be for a USAF CCT.

From the information I have gathered from several individuals, this London Bridge Trading Company assault panel was used by AFSOC types such as CCT's, PJ's, and TACP's.

Just for reference, I found several pictures of US Special Forces wearing Afghan made plate carriers in the field. Soldier in the middle is wearing a coyote colored Afghan made plate carrier.

Blackhawk H harness and belt that have been spray painted tan by the user. This one is named to a Major who was with the USMC 2nd ANGLICO (Air Naval Gunfire Liason Company). At the time he used this rig, he was a Captain of a Firepower Control Team (FCT) in Iraq. Rig was used on numerous jumps, during training missions, and while on patrol in Ramadi, Iraq.

Somehow I forgot to post the above rig awhile back. :think: It has been hanging out in the "war room" for several months. Is that a sign I have too much stuff? :lol:

 

Also, the Desert MARPAT does not go with this rig. It is one I had in my collection and was used as a backdrop for the picture. Furthermore, there is no body armor in this picture as the rig would not have fastened in the front.
