    Wasn't there a recent picture posted of an Auzzie Commando with a USP and their newly purchased X300's?

    Default RAAF 4 Squadron



    No. 4 Squadron, B-Flight members conduct intake training at Singleton weapons range. The purpose of the training is to determine if the candidates, from various Air Force trades, are suitable to be selected for specialist Commando training before becoming a B-Flight member.

    On Sunday the 19th of Feb the History Channel is showing a doco about the Bombing of Darwin to commemorate the 70th anniversary.

    I grew up in Darwin, and we didn't learn about it in school, so I'll be interested to learn more about it. I know my grandmother got caught up in it and had to evacuate by train, but that's about it.

    More bombs dropped than at Pearl Harbour, however due to there being F all in Darwin they may as well have dropped them on the moon

    Looks like a good documentary though, already locked in.

    Did they purchase holsters with them? As I've only seen SF troops with BHI Serpas.

    From what I've seen, Safariland holsters are favoured.
