SPARTANAT – Do It With Style: MultiCam Bow Tie

Saturday, December 9th, 2017

Tardigrade Fliege 1

Danish, you have to melt on your tongue: Taktisk Butterfly og Lommetørklæde fra Tardigrade Tactical. This means “Tactical black bow tie and matching handkerchief from Tardigrade Tactical”. Great idea, so you can also send a small tactical signal during the opera visit in a tuxedo. Or in civilian professional life. Ideally you have to wear it in front of the Christmas tree. Extremely tacticool! HERE are black bow tie and handkerchief to have: inf-wear.dk/da/gaveideer-og-gavekort/3407-tardigrade-tactical-tacticool-bow-tie

SPARTANAT: STEINER GOES KSK – MILITARY 5-25×56 ON G29

Saturday, July 8th, 2017

Steiner G29 Optik 1

A sniper rifle is only as good as you can shoot it. The result is a combination of weapon and optics, ammunition and man. We were able to admire the result of a new procurement of the Bundeswehr from SPARTANAT during a company visit in Bayreuth near Steiner Optics and then test it on the range: The Haenel RS9 is the official G29, mounted on the new Steiner Military 5-25 × 56 target telescope. The German specialists have opted for this combination. 115 weapons with Steiner optics have been successfully delivered to the Bundeswehr. They are now played by KSK and KSM.

Steiner G29 Optik 2

In the course of various foreign assignments of the German Federal Armed Forces, the need for the replacement of the G22 manifested itself. A corresponding order for the acquisition of a new medium-range sniping rifle was tendered by the Federal Armed Forces in 2014. The well-established German company C.G. Haenel GmbH won this tender – the new G29 is standardly equipped with a Steiner Military 5-25×56 scope on a Recknagel Era Tac-mount.

Steiner G29 Optik TReMoR3

The Steiner Military 5-25×56 features a TReMoR3 reticle and is a scope of highest optical quality that has specifically been designed for tactical and military operations. A high magnification combined with a large adjustment range extend field-relevant shooting distances beyond 1.500 meters. The 5x – 25x zoom displays the extreme versatility of these optics while the objective lens diameter of 56mm provides an outstanding visibility even in lowest light.

Steiner G29 Optik 4

The TReMoR3™ reticle is all about shooting faster. It is field-proven to make wind and elevation calls possible in a matter of seconds. The reticle also allows one to accurately mil targets very quickly using the chevron 1/10 mil marks.

Steiner G29 Optik 6

The Steiner Military scope has been built to defy any challenges in the field uncompromisingly. Its excellent optical performance with world-class light transmission far beyond 90%, in combination with the legendary Steiner ruggedness let this scope be the ultimate premium precision optics for any tactical and military application.

Steiner Optic

As a traditional local manufacturer, Steiner Optic from Bayreuth, Germany, evolved to be the biggest specialized producer of premium binoculars. From the 1950s onwards, Steiner Optic specialized in the field of optics to develop their products further. As a result, they can claim global leadership today and assert this position annually. Now again, Steiner Optic can look back at a very successful year. In 2016, they were able to strengthen their market position. Steiner Optic was able to increase their sales by over ten percent, thanks to increasing sales figures in Germany and abroad as well as in the military sector. Following these developments, Steiner Optic can look back at a very successful year, which motivates the Bayreuth specialists to expand their market position further and to keep their leading position in innovating and producing premium binoculars.

SPARTANAT – Gear Made in Israel – Agilite. “Our experiences come from the battlefield“

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

The Israeli army is considered one of the best in the world. No wonder, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) must defend a country that is surrounded by enemies in the truest sense of the word. At the same time, Israel has a creative defense industry. In the gear sector, AGILITE is one of the most outstanding companies. We talked with Eric, who is the international salesman for Agilite and was a member of the maritime SOF unit Shayatet 13, about the “Israeli way of gear”.

Agilite1

SPARTANAT: Eric, where does Agilite come from and when did you start it?

AGILITE: Agilite is an Israeli company that uses experience from IDF units to make clever and more creative solutions to make tactical gear more ergonomic. It was founded in 2006 in Tel Aviv, Israel and is a supplier to both the Israel Defense Forces and Forces worldwide.

Agilite2

SPARTANAT: IDF is an army with a lot of experiences. Is there a specific Israeli way of gear?

AGILITE: Yes, The IDF was founded under fire and often had to get by with whatever bad gear they could get hold of and just make it work. Right from the start, adapting the gear to make it work better was a part of the military culture. Soldiers had to get creative to make their equipment work well enough because being too heavy or not being able to move fast enough could cost you your life.
SF units and even regular infantry battalions all set up their own in-house gear studios to adapt or design their equipment from scratch to make it work well. They say “Necessity is the mother of invention” and when there’s a direct link between soldiers coming back from nightly missions and gear designers within their units gear can be refined and refined until it’s optimal for combat. This lead to a very different gear culture to other countries.

Agilite was founded to take this clever, creative, experience-based approach to gear design and combine it with professional manufacturing and to take it worldwide to other allied forces who can benefit from this mindset and gear that works with the body, not against it.

It’s gear ideas and experience going from the battlefield to the manufacturer, not the other way around like in many places.
As time goes on, weapons, enemy tactics and types of threats change but our soldiers’ bodies remain constant so gear has to adapt to keep operators light on their feet and agile.

Agilite3

SPARTANAT: What’s your favorite Agilite product?

AGILITE: My favorite Agilite product is the Axis knee pad, a product that fixed the IDF’s problem of knee pads that fall down. Axis are now the standard issue knee pad for the entire Israeli military and they are outstanding. Every operator knows what it’s like to have to pull your knee pads up from your ankles non-stop and with Axis you don’t have to do that. You put them on and forget about them. They are also great because they are very well priced to be relevant to all soldiers not just SF which is rare.

Personally I also love them because they grip wet surfaces, do not slip on boats and also don’t absorb water. which is important in naval operations. Some people are bothered by their physical appearance but anyone who tries them is instantly hooked.

AgiliteKatalog

SPARTANAT: Where is Agilite also in use beside Israel?

AGILITE: Agilite equipment is in use in over thirty countries and in some of the world’s most elite special forces units. Many top tier units operate in Middle Eastern combat terrain and climates very similar to ours and so our gear is very well received. We also do a lot of custom gear that is unit-specific but obviously not all of this is for public knowledge.

Eric M is head of International sales for Agilite. He spent 5 years as an operator in Shayetet 13, Israel’s Tier 1 Naval Special Warfare Unit. Contact: eric@agilitegear.com
