And You Thought It Could Only Be Done in Hollywood

At the recent Infantry Warfighting Conference at Fort Benning, Georgia we caught up with Tyr Tactical and one item at their booth had tongues wagging; the MICO Machine Gunner Assault Pack. Designed to carry 500 rounds of belted 7.62 ammo in the pack body with another 75 rounds in the feed chute, it looks like something straight out of Hollywood. But, unlike some movie creation, this is real and actually works. Thanks to Scottsdale Gun Club, Tyr was able to demonstrate the MICO in action. It is a very specialized piece of equipment and we don’t see guys wearing this one a multi-day patrol, but it does put a lot of rounds with the weapon. The photo above features an armor vest we didn’t see at IWC and isn’t on their website. Could it be their SPD 8 entry?

According the Tyr’s Facebook page, a variant for 5.56 ammo is in the works. The 7.62 MICO Pack is available in MultiCam, Coyote, and Ranger Green.
