We bring 2018 to a close with an image taken earlier this month of members of 1st Bn, 10th Special Forces Group (Airborne), training in their wartime tasks.

    If I was on a range in the snow I’d be complaining but for these guys it’s just another day

    • Brando says:

      Snow on the range is no big deal, but the cobblestones at Panzer can get really slippery and annoying during winter.

  2. Electrician says:

    Is the dude on the right wearing multicam and the other 2 wearing scorpion whatever. Or am I seeing things

    • DEM says:

      Dude on the right looks like Crye. Center and left dudes look like the Patagonia issued uniforms (and soft shell for the center dude)


    Are they running lasers on an alpha rail? …with all that rail flex?

  4. Jabroni says:

    What plate carrier they rocking? Definitely not the issued AVS.

    Bone to bone could use some improvement

      Who the fuck shoots bone to bone?

      I think there’s nothing worse than getting your picture on SSD. Somebody always finds something they think is being done wrong. If someone had a previously unseen photo of Audie Murphy charging the Germans somebody would comment on his rifle being off safe, or his boots not bloused, chin strap not fastened, etc. A photo catches a single instant in time. My guess is that the Soldiers in photo know what to do and know how to do it.

        32sbct could not agree more.

        Damn keyboard warriors. When doing the rifle qualifications I always would up my elbow on my knee and sit on my foot in an up and down position. That way I could get a sight picture and just move my foot left and right to hit my targets. Idk if these guys are just shooting or at a quality rage but. But the quality range shooting and how I would shoot when I was in Afghanistan in an actual firefight from my kneeling positional two different. I never shot from the kneeeling in Afghanistan it was always a “crouched” position. And I deployed with a special forces unit. Now mind you. I AM NOT SPECIAL FORCES QUALIFIED. But I did get a lot of advice and taught how to shoot and be comfortable while having cover/concealment.

      I know what you’re saying and I get your further comments below. I’ll just say that most professionals don’t have textbook technique. In addition, these particular professionals may be mobility limited due to any number of factors, including previously sustained injuries. That may be where some of the later comments are coming from, IDK.

    Photos like this are useless.
    How am I supposed to replicate the uniform and weapon setups for my mil-sim club when all three are different. According to other blogs/forums every uniform and system is identical and must be replicated in perfection for it to be effective

  7. These comments, what a damn joke. You guys must be experts in this area. With comments like bone on bone and eotechs gross. Man…someone reach out to 10th and get these commentors hired on as SMEs.

    • Matt in Oklahoma says:

      Do you know me?

      • Yawnz says:

        This is the Internet broheim. As far as anyone here is concerned you don’t even exist, so “knowing you” isn’t required.

        • Matt in Oklahoma says:

          And that’s why it shouldn’t be personal. It’s just a picture. No panties are required to fall off nor get wadded up.

      • Matt in Oklahoma says:

        The question was specifically for you not others. I guess we have different attitudes when meeting about business.

    In WWII a soldier carried 35lbs of gear at a cost of aprox. $170.00 in 2007 they say our soldiers were equipped with 75lbs of equipment with a cost between $28,000.00 and $70,000.00…The many evolution’s of gear development, especially in SOF units, add to those figures. The image gives one an idea of those variations.

    By the way, Happy 50th to the Poncho Liner!
