Sarge, the PEQ is a G&P batterybox with a 9.6 3300 nimh in it. the stand i made my self. just gutted an old hicap and got some epoxy putty to mold the corret angle. PM me and i'll give you some instructions as how to build one.
Yeah, I would definately reccomend putting the radio pouch on the side. I had mine on my old rig(FSBE) located on the left shoulder blade and couldn't easily access it. Oh, my CIRAS is the Phantom version.
