Digital Concealment Systems welcomes Clint Hoover to the team. In his first outing representing A-TACS Camo, Clint will be attending the upcoming IWA Show in Nuremberg, Germany in March of this year where he will be visiting with our international brand partners and developing new relationships within the industry. Clint brings over 25 years of practical military experience to DCS, having joined the U.S. Army in 1987. After completing Basic Training, Advanced Individual Training, Airborne school and the Ranger Indoctrination Program, he was awarded his Ranger Beret, Ranger Scroll and served as a Special Operations Combat Medic with the 1st Bn. 75th Ranger Regiment. He was primarily responsible for providing emergency medical treatment and evacuation to his fellow Rangers. His special assignments also included serving as a medic for a Battalion Combat Observation Lasing Team (COLT) and the Combat Search and Rescue (CSAR) team. Most of his warrior skills would derive from this premier Special Operations light Infantry unit; while focusing on Small unit tactics, Emergency field medical concepts and Ranger Operations. Due to Clint’s expertise, he was chosen to be a Task-Force medic for Operation BAT (Bahamas, Turks and Caicos), a joint Counter-Narcotic Interdiction unit. Operation BAT conducted counter drug smuggling operations, human smuggling and search and rescue with the US Drug Enforcement Agency, US Coast Guard, and Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) in the Caribbean Islands AOR.

Soon after, Clint successfully graduated from the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School as a Special Forces Weapons Sergeant, and was awarded his Green Beret; he was assigned to an Operational Detachment-Alpha. He deployed for operations in SOCSOUTH in support of Operation Joint Task Force-Bravo (JTF-B) with 20th Special Forces Group. Upon returning to active duty, Clint was assigned to USAJFKSWCS as a SF qualification course Instructor. There he mentored and instructed future Special Forces soldiers. His follow on assignment would be with an Operational Detachment-Alpha in 3rd Battalion, 3rd Special Forces Group and his duty positions included Junior and Senior Weapons Sergeant, and Special Forces company assistant operations sergeant. Clint deployed to numerous states and military installations within the Continental United States, twenty-two countries in Central America, Caribbean, Europe, Africa, Asia and operations in the Middle East. Clint supervised pre-deployment site surveys teams, advanced party teams, Joint Combined Exchange Training, medical missions, US Embassy Liaison, Personal Security Detail (PSD) and Joint Special Operations training. He worked directly with Foreign Government, Military & Law-Enforcement Officials in support of national interests and combat operations.

Once again due to his achievements, Clint was selected to instruct as the Primary Subject Matter Expert (SME) for the United States Asymmetric Warfare Groups- Combat Applications Training Course (CATC) for Marksmanship Strategies and Standards; and he was responsible for training Senior Leaders, Drill Instructors, NCOA and Deploying FORCOM units in Close Quarters Marksmanship (CQM) & Close Quarters Battle (CQB) Techniques. He was then called upon to become a Weapons Acquisition Branch NCOIC, who gave critical insight into the development and integration of materiel efforts for legacy and revolutionary weapon systems for the US Army. His area of knowledge focused on all weapons: 9mm, 5.56, 7.62, .50 cal and 40mm high and low velocity rounds.

Clint is also a master of all levels of Combat Marksmanship. His skills include: Training beginner, intermediate and advanced tactical shooting, Security, Survival, Unconventional Warfare concepts, Direct Action, Counter-Terrorism. Clint has developed a training methodology that is safe, effective and combat relevant, and encourages a continuous thought process. He is highly capable of training others how to maintain safety at all times at a realistic level for the student skill set and experience, as well as giving courses covering several categories, which cover individual, collective, on line and standards.

After retiring from the military in 2012, Clint formed Black Skull Tactical Applications. Derived from Outcome Based Training and Education application of divergent strategies, tactics, capabilities, and approaches are used to circumvent or negate an opponent’s strengths, while exploiting their weaknesses. Clint’s training programs revolve around 25 years of military training and a Special Operations background.

Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts, DCS will not be exhibiting at the IWA Show this year. To meet with Clint, send an e-mail request to info@a-tacs.com and he will make sure to stop by for a visit. Join us in welcoming Clint to the team.

Thursday, October 31st, 2013

New from Beez Combat Systems, the BCS AK47 triple magazine shingle is designed to carry three 30 round AK47 magazines. The open top 3 mag AK47 shingle can be mounted to any PALS compatible vest or plate carrier. The shingle has some unique features not found on other AK shingles.

In order to to reduce weight, keep it low profile and provide a distinctly different shingle to the market, BCS angled the corners of both the top and bottom to give it a unique look. The AK mags fit in the shingle perfectly in both direction because of the curve of the mag.
The internal pouch provides additional storage for small items and increases the carrying capacity. The pouch is secured with 2” Velcro across the entire length of the pouch.

Warrior Assault Systems’ DCS DA Plate Carrier Available in A-TACS FG

Monday, October 15th, 2012

UK-based Warrior Assault Systems has introduced their DCS (Dynamic Combat System) in A-TACS FG Camo. Warrior Assault Systems claims that the design was developed with “direct input from active S.F. Operators” and is “suitable for both Special Forces requirements, and PSD Operations”. Fair enough. The DCS accommodates large plates front and back and has the ability to carry either “6 x 6? or “6 x 8? side plates. It is also designed to accept NEXUS NIJ Level 3a Front and Back. Additionally, there is room for ICW side plates.

The shoulders are fully adjustable and have an Emergency Release on one side which frees the left hand side shoulder section and allows the wearer to remove the vest without having to remove his helmet. The side sections of the DCS are fully adjustable for size and can be adjusted in under 15 seconds. 3D Spacer Mesh lining is used for comfort and allows body heat to move away from the bodies surface while assisting in air flow to provide cooling.

The DCS was developed to be worn in tandem with their Warrior Frag Belt and comes standard with 5 x Open Mag pouches for 5.56mm Mags as well as 2 x Small Utility / Medic Pouch.
