SO Tech Falcon Rig used by the 325th PIR/AIR of the 82nd Airborne. Supposedly...only 2000 of these rigs were officially ordered and delivered to the 325th.

Look forward to seeing some more pics Arch!

 

Will

I have been doing my best to get pictures taken, but we have been dealing with the remnants of Tropical Storm Lee for the last couple of days. Plenty of clouds, plenty of rain, and very overcast. Not ideal weather to take pictures in. Tomorrow is supposed to be more sunny, so keep your fingers crossed. :thumbsup:

It has been some time since I posted in my gear thread. Today, the skies cleared up somewhat and I decided it would be a decent day toupdate my thread.

 

The first display is of a modified DCU with a PACA Low Vis body armor with an HSGI (High Speed Gear Incorporated) Denali chest rig. The black buckles have been spray painted black. This is perhaps the most complicated and heaviest rig I have ever come across.

Here is a close-up of the PACA Low Vis body armor. This one has seen a lot of use.

I was going to put this set of Protech body armor with a modified LBV for a USAF TACP or JTAC, but the LBV was way too small to fit on my mannequin, so I will have to show them seperately.

 

This is a ProTech body armor. This type armor does have pockets on the front and back for hard armor. It is similar in design to the famous PT vest favored by CAG and SEALs.

This is an LBV that has been modified for use by a USAF TACP or JTAC. The right side has had the magazine pouches removed and has had a radio pouch sewn on. The radio pouch has a pocket for an extra radio battery.
