A couple of gear displays


Recommended Posts

T.G. Faust woodland body armor with areas for hard armor. These vests were popular with Delta during the 90's. This particular vest would be from the mid 90's and used for a short period of time.

 

Notice the tape residue on the front and back area where 100 mph tape was worn with blood type written on it. This was also a very common practice during that time.

Outstanding Arch!

"I looked up at the bunker in front of me and saw a khaki-uniformed NVA with a pith helmet, chest web gear, green Bata boots and an AK, Type 56, and no other identifying insignia. Then I shot him." -- Sergeant Tony "Fast Eddie" Anderson, RT Kansas, TF1AE, 1971

As seen worn by a Seal Team 5 member, a famous pic taken after fighting in Tal Afar in 2005. I saw that one on ebay, unluckily out of my price range. VERY nice, as usual.

Thanks, Taucco! You don't by any chance have that photo you mentioned?

You probably just didn't noticed it as the photo is famous, it was also featured on the cover of "SEALs: The US Navy's Elite Fighting Force" by Mir Bahmanyar and Chris Osman (who probably had the photos)

The man directly over the flag's skull is wearing one.

This is a small grouping from a DEA Special Agent in the GWOT. Holster is for a Glock 22 and is well worn. DEA items from the GWOT are quite uncommon to find.

 

I used my Glock 17 for display purposes.

Here is an Afghan made copy of the Eagle Industries CIRAS vest. This vest is not the typical quality you find in Afghan made items. This piece is good quality compared to most Afghan items.

 

The tiger stripe jacket underneath the vest is also a SF used item from Afghanistan.

Here is an interesting piece. This is some body armor that belonged to an Iraqi "Terp" (Interpreter).

You may ask HOW does some Iraqi body armor qualify as US related? Well.....it is manufactured by Point Blank Body Armor. They are the same people who make body armor for the US troops.

Thanks to Taucco, the vest identified as an Afghan copy is actually a Comando de Selvas copy of the older generation Paraclete RAV. Learn something new everyday. :thumbsup:
