Saab Provides Camouflage Systems to France

Thursday, January 20th, 2022

Saab has signed a framework contract for the supply of its Barracuda multispectral camouflage systems with the French defence procurement agency, Direction générale de l’armement (DGA). The contract includes the delivery of new camouflage systems as well as a system adaptation phase in cooperation with the DGA. The contract is for eight years and provides for annual deliveries.

With this cooperation, the DGA and the French Army will benefit from Saab’s global network and more than 60 years of expertise in the field of advanced camouflage systems. This programme has a pioneering character and is organised in different cooperation phases. In addition to the delivery of the most advanced camouflage systems for the operational areas of the French Army, the order includes a joint work phase during which the Barracuda camouflage solutions will be specifically adapted to the French Army’s operational requirements.

“The first phase of this programme will fine-tune the specification of the multispectral camouflage nets in order to meet the specific requirements of the French Army. The provided technology will enhance the user’s ability to remain undetected in the battlefield where the development of more capable and accessible sensors drastically increases the need for efficient camouflage,” says Henning Robach, head of business unit Saab Barracuda.

S.O.Tech Road Warrior Bag in Brushstroke

Tuesday, January 11th, 2022

A travel bag designed by guys who hit the road hard, fast and often – SOF operators. These are guys who are always waiting for the balloon to go up and the call to move out. The guys who live in hotel rooms and stay prepped and organized to lift and shift to the next location on a moments notice.

The Road Warrior Bag has pockets for your power cords, first aid and survival kits, international licenses, passports and travel documents, and a main compartment organizing your hygiene items and meds. This bag stays stocked and loaded in your locker. When the call comes, you throw this in a 3 day pack with a weeks worth of clothes and you are out the door. When you are laid out in your hotel and the team needs to shift to the next town, a quick visual inspection of this pack will remind you what is missing before you blow out. Power cords, batteries, can openers, flashlights, SCUBA license, bug juice, pill packs – everything has its place. And when you get back to home base, restock before you replace because you never know when that phone is going to ring. 

The Road Warrior Bag also makes a great tool, electronics or medical bag.

Raven Concealment Systems Announces Signature Reduction from MATBOCK for Holsters and Accessories

Tuesday, December 7th, 2021

Raven Concealment Systems announced today an exciting new partnership with MATBOCK to provide Near-IR compliant signature reduction for the RCS product line.

The result of this partnership is that RCS will now be able to offer their holsters and magazine carriers clad with MATBOCK Skins.  The Skins provide significant signature reduction under both visible light and infrared/night vision, while also reducing noise signature of anything that scrapes against the outside of the holster.

MATBOCK introduced the Skins over a year ago, and since that time, they have been used extensively on helmets, dive fins, night vision goggles, and countless other pieces of kit where durable signature reduction was required.

Michael Goerlich, owner of Raven Concealment Systems explains:

“Normally, when we talk about how great our holsters are at ‘concealment,’ we’re talking about how we designed them to hug your body very closely to make it easier to hide them under clothing.

But for some missions, ‘concealment’ means something completely different.  Sometimes, the holster needs to blend in with a uniform.  Sometimes, it needs to be Near-IR Compliant so that it doesn’t show up as a glowing orb when someone is looking at you through night-vision goggles.

Some companies will use hydro-dip to put a Multicam pattern on their holsters.  This kinda ‘looks’ like Multicam (if you don’t look too closely) but it doesn’t do anything to reduce noise signature, and it actually makes your gear stand out even more under night-vision than if they had just left it black.

Other companies accomplish signature reduction by gluing Cordura nylon onto their holsters.  While that method does help with signature reduction, the MATBOCK Skins provide equal or superior signature reduction while also weighing less and being much more precisely fitted – which means they also happen to look significantly better in daylight, when your friends are admiring your gear.

This is why we are so excited to announce this partnership:  MATBOCK now provides our product-line the best Near-IR compliant signature reduction solution available on the market.”  

Just in time for the holidays, RCS has released a special bundle of their products featuring MATBOCK Skins.  Each bundle includes a Lictor M4 rifle magazine carrier, a Lictor G9 dual pistol magazine carrier, and your choice of either a Glock 19 or a Sig P320C/M18 Perun, all shipped with Multicam MATBOCK Skins factory-installed.  These bundles are available here:  rcsgear.com/matbock-ir-signature-reducing-government-kit
