    Soldier in ghillie suit. Sniper I guess. Speaking of snipers, maybe the military should reconsider converting the FN-FAL/NR1 to a designated marksman rifle DMR (scopes, bipods, offset scopes, etc) and assigned to trained marksmen and snipers in the frontline. Purchase of anti – material rifles will equally be very very nice.

    Gen Beegs, the ballistic helmets of the officers and troops here are different. They’re also black. Any info on specs or orientation of the units wearing them (SF)?

    • asorockweb says:

      Those are helmets straight from the manufacturer.
      The expectation is that the unit will change it to match the camo or uniform.

      In this case, the black covering was never changed to match the camo.
