Strategie & Technik – Roving Tactical Reporter Wings Now Available

Tuesday, March 20th, 2018

During Enforce Tac, my friend Dr JP Weisswange presented me with his Roving Tactical Reporter Wings.


JP refers to the skill set as Die RTR-Schwingen (RTR = Rasender Taktischer Reporter/Roving Tactical Reporter). Considering I run into him all over the world, it’s an apt title.

The badge’s symbology is more intricate:

The owl stands for strategy, the gear for technology and the gladius for armed forces. The wings represent the energy of the reporter. The whole is on a diagonally divided rectangle, the tactical sign for Enlightenment, the lower greenish half stands for infantry, the upper golden yellow for cavalry.

The badge is available from www.sierra-313.de/shop/.

Afghanistan Ski Patrol Patch by VLMS

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Violent Little Machine Shop’s Nate, explains the design:

I spent the majority of 2009 living in the mountains of Afghanistan. It was my second deployment there so I knew what the terrain was like, but this was my first winter. Everyday I looked up at the snow covered peaks surrounding us wishing I could go ski them. Unfortunately, once you left that front gate, people tried to kill you and I wasn’t really into the idea of a biathlon.

I guess the only thing better than skiing and shooting guns is if it’s alpine skiing and, instead of that wimpy .22 they use in the Olympics, it’s an M249. If we made that an Olympic sport, there’s no doubt in my mind that Thirty Seconds Out would win the gold for the USA.

To honor that thought, today we are introducing their Afghanistan Ski Patrol patch…

SHOT Show 18 – FN America Updates A Classic Meme

Monday, January 29th, 2018

Although it started as a recruiting poster, the Rhodesian Army’s “Be a Man among Men” campaign became a meme before there even was such a thing. The classic image features a Troopie on Patrol with an FN FAL.


At this year’s SHOT Show, FN America updated the design with a fully kitted out Operator, equipped with an FN SCAR. Along with it, a new slogan, “Be a Warrior among Warriors”.
