What are these guys wearing? I know its kind of hard to tell, but if anyone wants to take a stab at it, please do!


Isnt it just Desert Auscam?


I meant kit-wise.

Well apart from the already ID'd desert Auscam (DPDU) it would look like he's wearing either SORD or Plat a tac kit, both widely used by Australian forces. Personally I'd lean more towards SORD; however the two pics you posted are of different snipers (one wearing CIRAS-like body armour, and the other wearing a chest rig with rear hard plate carrier) so it's difficult to pin down all the kit.


What is visible kit-wise on chap 1 is a hydro carrier, a large(ish) utility pouch and what might be another - smaller - utility pouch mounted on the back. Chap 2 has a hydro carrier and what looks like a double mag pouch and a grenade pouch mounted on the back panel and a large(ish) utility pouch on the end of the chest rig that's under his right arm.

It is a VVS 'Vintorez'. It is classed as a sniper weapon but operationally it is for pin point hits at normal rifle ranges as opposed to long range 'sniper' shots.




Love the picture of the guy in the helicopter! Is that one of the RAF lot that they deployed in Basra?
