I believe this to be an early OEF rig used by AFSOC. Black body armor is a 10-2001 dated American Body Armor piece.

Rig is a "Frankenstein" piece. It is rigger made from an SO Tech back piece and an early Paraclete front piece.

Continuing my love affair with painted gear, here is a Paraclete (pre-MSA) hard plate carrier that has been painted tan for use in desert environments.

Tru-Spec modified desert tiger stripe jacket with an Afghan made plate carrier. Plate carrier is made by A-Qahir.




Helmet is a plastic "bump helmet" that has been painted tan an dhas at one time had a NVG mount. The helmet suspension has been replaced with an early CGF suspension and Oregon Aero pads have been added to the inside. Bungee cords have been added to help stabilize the NVG when attached. Velcro has been added to the sides and back for the attachment of patches and counter-weights that help balance out the NVGs.

Picture of a similar set up in use in Afghanistan. I think the man in the desert tiger is AFSOC Pararescue.

This is one of the tan American Body Armor LBVs that were used during Desert Storm by US Special Forces. Typical of what you'd see with the 5th SFG from that time period.

The 6 color jacket underneath is also a period modified piece. Pockets have been added to the sleeves and velcro has also been added. It has a HUGE piece of glint tape on the sleeve pocket.

Cristina (Ecuador) made rig that has been painted tan worn over a tan painted Paraclete (pre-MSA) plate carrier. Jacket is a modified DCU.

The Cristina rig is made in Quito, Ecuador, so there is a good likelihood that this was a 7th SFG used piece. Central and South America falls under the responsibility of the 7th Special Forces Group.

As to where this would have been used, my bet is in Afghanistan during the earlier years.

AWS Strike chest rig as used by 1st SFOD-Delta in the 90s. This is an earlier generation one that has 94 dated ITW-Nexus buckles.

Continuing with my love of painted gear, here is a painted woodland SPEAR vest with a painted Blackhawk! Commando chest rig. These type set up would have been commonplace with Special Operations community in the earlier parts of the GWOT.
