UKSF Loadouts

Right, im looking to do an overt sbs setup from A'stan.

i was thinking along the lines of tricol pants with hikeing boots, dpm jacket.. molle padded belt with first like stuff and dropleg and dumper, and a chest rig (od krynoned dusty tan). with a m4 not quite as pimped as us stuff.

a forces 44 daysack (i have a fairly abused dpm one i can use), and either a dpm squaddified boonie, in dessie, or a shamagh moddified into a head wrap, and a shamagh around my neck?

useing ESS ice glasses like shades.

anyone got suggestions on improving this? or is it quite close? ive tried looking on militery photos for sbs pics, but came up with nothing, id appreciate some helpful reference images :)

thanks :)

In the book Bloody Heroes all the SBS operators wear civies. In all the pics they're in green/tan trousers/jackets with civvy hiking boots. I think its one of those things like with PMCs where they wear whatever they feel most comfortable in. There was definitely no set kit list.

those pics (well, at fair chunk of them) are not in the Bloody Heroes book released down in NZ.

Quite possible ( can't be arsed to look at em al ), their was apicture about of some SAS guys in Iraq wearin em, so the SBS probably do aswell. As someone above said they where what suits. Got a paid myself, well cool.

i think peps here are obsessed with that sort of vest being 5'11, to me, it looks like a comon or garden garden waistcoat, or fishing vest, just green, and unobtrusive, the sort of thing a camera man would use. im quite suprised by the lack of armour.... then again, its sbs, and everyone knows all british special forces are bullet proof ;)

 

am suitable chest rig?

My most recent attempt at the look

 

 

 

started out with a chicom but found a claymore bag seemed to 'fit' with the look better its also alot more comfortable in the long run

 

Sigtac clothing

pair of Lowa desert boots - under alot of mud

and a shemagh

+ indiginous AK
