    Will 2021 see a new pistol buy?

    To bring everything to within the last decade: coaching is barely touched on during Weapons Det Member (IBMG + AGLS if you do it all split up), it's something mentioned in the MLP but not really expanded upon during PLQ, and ISCC is currently far too condensed to even give it any consideration...

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    Sweet, do you happen to know the NSN or make? Because I'm at the point where I was just going to call up TEA and see if they had anything since they supplied the V60 kits for my buddy's unit at JBLM.

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    From what I've seen in Pet is we've stripped everything off except the radio, V60 control box / PTT and dudes were making use of civ-ATAK. With the third stage of ISSP in swing delivering the newer Harris radios you're kind of stuck with the V60 PTT since it hard to find a commercially available...

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    As far as the system operator, I feel that would a heavily contextualized role like having a sect signaller, but it would be something I would have to play with. But yeah, there's just way too much shit crammed into the 163 that I'll never end up using and that's before you get into all the...

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    The Brits are droping Bowman (and it's not compatible with ATAK from what I've been told) and are moving to the PRC-163s like we are, but I surmise they're following the USMC model are probably looking to push a lot of unmanned assets down to the section (whether that is actually going to happen...

    Make the rain jacket waterproof?

    Any DWR spray along with proper care and cleaning will make it bearable when static in light showers or when using it in the winter, but the materials and construction of the CADPAT rain jacket preclude it from being water proof unfortunately.

    Updated Army Service Dress project

    While I don't know how this discussion veered into this domain, I will say this: We do not posses the most proficient infanteers (in mech, motorized, or light role context) in NATO, we have a ridiculous number institutional knowledge gaps from the Pte/Cpl level all the way up to the Comd of any...

    Soldier Operational Clothing and Equipment Modernization

    The new Arctic Operations Advisor course is way more tactical than its predecessors. The 150km advance to contact is a doozy.

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    You say validated light infantry, I say we identified a lot of short falls in training, equipment and logistics... the 3RCR AAR was interesting and the TLDR of it was this: if SFAB wasn't there we wouldn't have even been as marginally useful as we were to the BCT getting validated. Side note...

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    Figures blousing's a concern: low blousing has been a thing for a while fellas (the ECUs were designed with that in mind nine years ago), especially so when the majority of dudes wear lower cut boots in garrison to start. If that isn't good enough, just look how British it is. Outside of that...

    Informing the Army’s Future Structure

    Best thing about it is this: the best ISTAR asset the light battalions have right now is the DFS platoon (which have been inviting over a lot of Aussie and British DFS instructors to observe the courseware and doctrine in Gagetown).

    New CADPAT...what's causing the availability delay?

    Funnily enough yes; it's also what they were pushing for originally in DLR-5 back when Multicam was a contender because they were looking at a system that would allow units to purchase COTS solutions should there be shortfalls / delays or failure to meet demand. But something something...

    New CADPAT...what's causing the availability delay?

    Oh I agree, but treated camouflage material vs a solid tunic present themselves quite differently under I2.

    New CADPAT...what's causing the availability delay?

    Something to be said about glowing under Gen 3 I2 and FLIR.
