    That looks like one tricked out 1911

      That picture was on the front of the CCT recruitment pamphlet. I think I still have the one I took from the display outside the AF recruiting office at my hometown mall.

        I was going to say the same thing. I definitely remember that as a recruiting brochure back in the 90s.

    The LBV on the middle of the page far right also came with a pack that integrated with it. I still have the one I was issued, and have it loaded and ready to go.

      Little square shaped one with one pocket? Like a shrunk down MOLLE assault pack almost?

      • Stickman says:

        Kinda, it had pockets on both sides, and then the inside of the pack was a bit small. I need to take pics of it. I think I still have the leg panel MP5 pouches, but I would have to dig deep to find them.

    Always wanted one of those woodland dry suits.

    I’d like to see a comparison between then and now.

    Cool guy points for the M4 with 100rd Beta-Mag and the Night Desert Camo Parka.

      Early 90s, those are most likely GUU-5Ps of one configuration or another. There wasn’t much of a standard for those guns.

    Back when you actually had to work hard to maintain comms. PRC-104, LST5C, PRC-113, KY-99. Those all made for some heavy rucks. All batteries and radios and very little room for snivel gear. I hated airborne ops with that stuff.

    Def looks like a pic for a recruiting brochure. In reality you would’ve gotten issued/used maybe a 1/4 of that gear, if you were lucky.

    Funny there’s no actual climbing or rappelling gear amongst the pile.
    Liking the skinny little Alice belt rig, those were the days.
    And a distinct absence of Velcro.
