3 colour FT isn´t bad for the landscape of A-stand. If those who shall not be named think that they need something special.....so may it be. I wouldn´t say it´s necessary because the Wüstentarn is not a huge improvement.
Well... It's flecktarn and you wear a shemag, but apart from that I don't see any similarities with what the KSK uses or has used in the past. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but if you want to look the part, there is a lot to be done and money to be spent.
I know it's not perfect (it's a begining and I'm open to all construtive discution), and I was on the way to buy a moskito tactical vest but after watching some recent video it seems to be remplace by US vest like ciras and PC and MAV
First of all you should decide on what kind of impression you want to do - direct action or long range recon, training in Germany or on deployment to A'stan. It just seems to me you haven't done that yet, right?
seems to me, that i've seen this vest on guys from Feldjäger
If you have the link to the pictures I'm interested
I'm searching a light set up (I already have an old school gear with heavy helmet and mehler vest).
I prefer a german training typ gear (as I know in Astan it's rather a mix between flecktarn and wustentarn)
The DSO is not a unit but a military formation that includes different units from the KSK to the Army Music Corps 300, so for an impression you would have to be a bit more precise in what you want to display.
As I wrote in my post, we did an impression as KSK in our last team. That said we have all the gear left.
But! We want to use the G36A2 "rifle" insted of the G36K and be able to use the RS Mehler vest.
We are pretty sure that we have seen pics of DSO with the G36 rifle, what unit shuld we choose to do a true impression acording to the gear we want to use?
Heres a pic of my friend with some of the gear, not the G36A2 or the mehler vest.
We do have more gear like boonies and backpacks etc.
The G36A2 and G36(A1) rifles are still widely used in the DSO's paratrooper battalions - as far as I know, there are only about 420 G36KA2 and 2100 G36A2 at all in the Bundeswehr, so you can imagine how rare they are compared to 170k G36 and G36A1.
What you usually won't see with paratroopers though is the Mehler "Schutzweste Standard", they use either the "Schutzweste Spezialkräfte" or the IdZ body armor.
Also, I think the rest of your gear looks too high-speed for a regular para or even one in the pathfinder platoons. Don't get me wrong - the Sabre stuff and everything is high-quality gear (and looks very good, too), but soldiers tend to be no geardos and buy the cheaper stuff from TacGear or Tasmanian Tiger instead.
The soldiers in the second pic are from Fallschirmjägerbataillon 263. The one in the first pic probably is from Fallschirmjägerbataillon 313, they provided most paratroopers for the 1st GECON ISAF back in 2002.
Your best bet would a soldier from a pathfinder platoon - the smock and pants don't really fit as these soldiers either get the issued smock or seem to buy TacGear at unit level, but the ATXS chest-rig and the HanWag boots don't really fit anywhere else:
Normally, you see the pathfinders use the G36KA2, but some battalions apperently had to turn in their Ks because they were needed in Pfullendorf, so that leaves them with the G36A2.
The only real no-go will be the Mehler Standard vest, then, but what you could do is remove the collar and pouches and wear it under your smock.
How about the FSLK 200? Fernspähkompanie! Or perhaps the Fernspäher Forces within the KSK?
"The FSLK 200 is directly subordinate to Division Special Operations or Division Spezielle Operationen of the German Army"
"The arsenal of the Fernspäher is mainly based on stock issued weapons of the Bundeswehr, but with special additions not available to regular troops. The main weapon system is the Heckler & Koch G36 assault rifle."
Also the "pathfinders" whats their german name?
What is most right of all this and most up to date?
Fallschirmjäger, Jägerbattalion, without the Mehler vest?
Thanx for your time and your help!
