Fatal

Modern Ranger Loadout

Recommended Posts

I *think* we're in a cultural crash here.

In Europe we are living with a lot more people per square Km than in the States. Help gets faster to you in most parts of the EU.

I believe there's still a large ' you can only count on yourself' philosophy in the States. That might explain the reaction.

Aussies might have the same feeling.

 

Completely justified then of course.

I wonder if only in my country one must pass a first aid course in order to get a driving license and every car must be equipped with a first aid kit... (Neo-Socialist Hungary of Orbanisthan.)

spare tire, lamps and warning signs x2, pass the test, pay the taxes and drive to the nearest tree without a FAK in Spain too.

So, what's new with the rangers these days? I checked their facebook page but couldn't find any decent pictures of them in gear. I need an update on their gear.

-MC with CB/tan gear or something like that

-Still Mk18 or...?

-Going with FMA maritime helmet with MC helmet cover?

In general,

Plate carrier: AVS or Khaki EPC/MBAV with SOFLCS multicam pouches. Some old RLCS stuff mixed in on occasion.
Weapon: Block II M4A1, Mk 18 Mod 1, SCAR-Hs and SCAR-Hs with 5.56 conversion kits. 
Helmet: Opscore Maritime

Here's a good photo gallery showing AVSs in use.

RRVs are no longer in use.

 

Recent pictures show the use of Multicam Crye AVS plate carriers and multicam pouches. Some Rangers may still be wearing khaki Eagle MBAV plate carriers with multicam pouches, but this is probably becoming increasingly rare as newer equipment is adopted.

 

Here are some photos from 2014 which should give you an idea of what kit is currently in use.

As my AVS repro is coming in tomorrow I have put together a kit-list and would welcome critique and advice (those few items I already have are marked with *). I am aware that a lot of the stuff are obviously repros (budget and location constrictions), I plan on swapping less expansive parts of the kit in the long run (probably not the uniform, plate carrier, helmet).
 

Headgear:
FMA Maritime
FMA Manta Strobe
(Opscore multicam mesh helmet cover and battery pouch repros)
(Comtac 3)
Emerson wilcox l4g24
Ess Crossbow*

 

1st line/unifrom:
Emerson Gen 2 MC pants*
Massiff shirt* (placeholder for AC shirt)
Blackhawk Rigger belt
Mechanix gloves*
Lowa Zephyr GTX Mid (?)

 

2nd line:
Emerson AVS*
SOFLC pouches in multicam (I need further research here, so far I am planning on Triple Mag Pouch, IFAK, Double Mag Pouch, Dump Bag, Radio Pouch)

 

3rd line
Flyye Yota / MAP bag

 

M4 SOPMOD BLOCK II (-ish)
KAC RAS* (should be swapped with 12'' DD II RAS in DE)
TA01NSN* (should be swapped with Specter / 553)
KAC grip* 
LMT SOPMOD*

I know it's somewhat crude but that should be enough for my budget for about 2 years.
