    Yes I understand, but i had to use military dialect because ubermensche started ask me questions where I doesn't know different vocabulary for better explanation. I respect you guys it takes a lot of time and for now atleast someone responds to me. I think, that we should start talking about that helmet. :]

    So who does the catering at Airsoft events? If you're going to act authentically, you need to eat authentically, and don't forget the bluestone in the coffee.

I've found evidences that FAST helmet was worn by US SFGs in the year 2010-->

    PJ-Paramedics (http://www.americanspecialops.com/ph...n-sopmod-2.php)
    DEA FAST (http://www.socnet.com/showthread.php?t=95038),
    SOTF (http://www.shadowspear.com/vb/thread...s.4172/page-14)

    But i didn't find any Green beret from 2010 for sure yet, just from april 2011(http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/mosl...n-attacks.html) or 2012 ( http://www.americanspecialops.com/ph...p-soldiers.php).

    Can somebody help me to find some evidences from 2010? Even some text info would be fine. Thank you
    I'll try and help you out man -

    I'm not going to do any crazy research or anything, but the easy answer to your question is "maybe". There very well could have been someone on an ODA somewhere in 2010 using an OPS Core FAST helmet.

    I think you're splitting hairs, honestly - I understand you're going for a high level of authenticity, but does it really matter if it was April 2011 or 2010?

    Does "0569" in your username stand for anything in particular?

    Thanks, the most support comment until now. ;-] It is because I'll have to get confirmation from my commander and he'll want evidences. Like i said we are in coop with other teams which are reenacting 10th SFG. If we would have equipment which isn't reliable to 10th SFG we would be target for them if you understand. :] Maybe evidences from other special units from 2010 and later of Green berets will be enough (but i would be likely sure for confirmation). I have some other photos of Special Operations Task Force from 2010 and that's compound of many special forces isn't it? Many of them put ops-core helmet on the head. :-]

    PERSEC, not OPSEC. Not a good idea on the interwebs.

    You're not reenacting anything.. You're just shooting BB's at each other in a cool costume. If you would painstakingly recreate the daily life, material, culture, language and habits of a US soldier in 2010 you would be reenacting, but still a lame walt.

    First leg of that daily recreation, move post haste to the nearest cesspool, ghetto or land fill. Sometimes you are lucky, and get all three in one location for the price of one. Preferably, there are some recently missing cadavers that have been fermenting under it all for added aroma. Live in it. Rain, freezing temps, scalding soul sucking heat and suffocating humidity if available is a bonus. Eat in it. Revel in it. Showers and hygeine always recommended, but miss the bi-weekly shower run because you usually don't get it anyway and stew in your own **** funk for two more weeks for added realism. Implied, but often needs to be reminded, ensure you are wearing the same uniform for that duration. Underwear, skivvies, drawers, and so forth, are good for civilized folk, but I generally found myself "going commando" after the first few days. Helps that funk air out somewhat. And feels good man. Changing socks occasionally is okay, and recommended. Feels good man. Substitute BB's for lead. Watch your wingman writhe in pain, screaming, bleeding out all over you. Doesn't feel good man, for either of you. Just a small start, but should help smooth out some of the waltiness.

    Well if one is reenacting the RN, make sure the mutton still has some fur on it.

    I don't get it. Why can't people just take airsofting for what it is, a non-dead serious team sport to be played for the lulz or to burn off some stress? Why not go at it as "Team Coca Cola" against "Team Pepsi" or something along these lines?
    Rule of thumb: the "reenacting" of any war whose participants are still among us has nothing to do with giving people an idea of historic events, and it does not go to "honour" the real warfighters old and young. I'd even exclude World War Two from the to-do-list of respectable reenactment as that is mostly a domain of Nazi uniform ******ists or stick-up-the-ass nationalists who are pissed they were born too late.

    One thing that always struck me as humorous about WWII reenacting is that most of those who partake in it are twice the age and weight of those they're portraying . Can't help but chuckle when I see some 250 pound 40 year old running around as a Pvt. in some 101st 506th PIR reenactment unit, which seems to be just about every goddamn unit out there. I'd wager there's more reenactors than there were men in the actual regiment.
