TD Tombstone Flannels Are Back!

Friday, October 18th, 2019

This year’s layer-slayer sports updated buttons & trims.  Still in our beloved Soft Brushed Cotton Stretch now in our new 3-color plaids & heather solids.

Made from a mid-weight brushed cotton “stretch” woven to deliver comfort and warmth, our TD Tombstone Flannel is a semi-fitted button-down shirt featuring a number of important details specifically tailored towards our customer.  For TD’s “fast draw” access, we replaced the front 2 bottom buttons with low-profile, plastic snaps that will allow the wearer to access their concealed weapon faster and help reduce the chance of getting hung up on the shirt hem. There are 2 large chest pockets, with the right side sporting a handy sunglasses loop.   Small branding hits on the front pocket and back neck add that extra attention to detail.  Our Tombstone Flannel’s standard fit is tailored to drape naturally over the waistline, helping to conceal your firearm and extra mags.  As always, we strive to give the customer value and quality in all TD products. 

Features:
-Soft Brushed Cotton Stretch Flannel
-Quick Draw Snaps allow easy CCW access
-2 Button Down Chest Pockets
-Sunglass Loop
-Dual Button cuffs

AUSA 19 – MOOG’s Reconfigurable Integrated Weapons Platforms Features PASEO Sight by SAFRAN Optics 1

Thursday, October 17th, 2019

Weapon integrator MOOG has incorporated the SAFRAN Optics 1 PASEO Modular Advanced Stabilized Sight on their Reconfigurable Integrated – Weapons Platform.

RIwP is a remote turret which can be configured in multiple ways including for multiple missiles, direct fire weapons and sight combinations. All direct fire weapons feature reload under armor for increased crew protection.

RIwP is currently being offered as an upgrade to the US Army’s Stryker as well for the SHort Range Air Defense system.

PASEO incorporates day color HDTV cameras, cooled thermal imager, and eye-safe laser rangefinder. The day cameras allow continuous, motionless zoom. Images are always stabilized, even while on the move. The system provides panoramic scan mode for 360 deg coverage and when connected to an Inertial Navigation System, threat geo-location. It can also be armored for increased survivability.

Dual PASEO systems are currently deployed on the Cockerill 3000 series vehicle. One is used by the vehicle commander and the second by the gunner to allow independent Target acquisition and overall situational awareness.

AUSA 19 – WL Gore & Assoc Integrated Cabling for Soldier Systems

Wednesday, October 16th, 2019

I first saw Gore’s Integrated Cabling for Soldier Systems at DSEI last month in London. I was quite pleased to see that they had brought the technology across the pond to the US. Gore’s cable systems are across the board, lighter, more flexible and less prone to breakage than alternatives, thanks to the ePTFE exteriors. Using them to provide power and databus within an armored vest, was a logical step.

The armor vest itself was manufactured by WL Gore partner brand Costas Siamidis, which is based in Greece. The actual Gore cabling is inside of this vest. They are connector agnostic, which is important considering there are at least four different connectors on the market.

This is what their cable bundles look like and they will configure them how needed. Compared to other systems, they are less than half the weight and much less bulky.
