    The 'red' OPFOR cams were part of the 'Musorian upgrade' idea in the mid 90's... Someone got a promotion out of it no doubt...

    It's also good for avoiding stoppages. When I was issued a new bush hat the size of a goddamn sombrero, the brim would fall down over the ejection port of my Steyr while firing, sometimes rebonuding the spent casings back into the port causing stoppages. The main reason I cut down my bush hat was to avoid this happening again.

    I thought I did an alright job cutting it down and stitching it back together by myself-


    Then I turned it over-


    I missed stitches, didn't keep a straight line, and in some spots, missed the brim entirely. Not to mention when I cut it down the seams on the brim aren't parallel- they're concentric, so when I cut all the way around I was nearly 50mm out of line. I had to trim the whole thing back to make it look even, making the brim much smaller than originally planned. Turned out OK though, and I think the mistakes just add character to the hat

    Might be a bit off topic, but what did the Army use just before DPCU was issued? Was it the 'greens' that were worn in back in the Vietnam War?

    Last I saw Norforce were celebrating their 25th anniversary mid last year. Haven't heard anything about a name change.

    "...dude.." NorForce is still operational. Just a quick note to you.
    Also , in the military we don't change Regimental titles like our underwear, therefore unit names tend to last longer than your body odour. Now **** off before you get into trouble.

    You guys have somthing called musorians? that have all the same gear as the Indos? I hear stories from your Exercises. We always just used "Indonesians" as OPFOR. "Reports from Ops Room, Indonesian MIGs closing. Action stations, Action stations!" close up on .50's and so forth. Then we would get smashed by Indo Missiles and have to repair ****.

    We used to have Musurians and Kamarians, depending on the exercise.

    Oh right. I only speak from what I saw being done on training grounds, digrar knows where my experience is, not on surface. So yeah.
    Interestin though, how the two different services dont just use Indos.
