    small questions

    Post by 31TKComd on Sat Jul 20, 2013 4:32 pm

    Hi,

    I have some small questions, I hope to find answers here :)I'm looking to start a new project Smile

    first: In combat zones, soldiers wear chest rigs and plate carriers? Or only one of them?

    Second: What are the chest rigs and plate carriers used this days by the US army?

    Last one: how or with what sling did he (soldier most right) his stock?


    thanks

    Hay I know that it depends on the soldier, some have the pouches on the plate carriers others will have a rig over the top, with this photo it is Australian SASR and the tall dude in ben Roberts-Smith VC,and with the slings in the photo it could be any brand? my guess is either SORD Australia or platatac.

    Ok, thanks.

    I was thinking of a US soldier in MultiCam anno 2011-2013 in Afghanistan. What unit doesn't really matter as long it's has stationed in Afghanistan.

    Usually the IOTV is worn and various molle pouches are attached to the vest. It can be a soldiers discretion or a unit level determination as to how many pouches are worn. As for slings a quick release is preferred but some are stuck with the traditional sling that does not detach. The quick release is preferable that way when you hop in your truck, or go to chow you press the plastic connector and set your rifle down.
