The second part of this series is of course my second line!
My second line is dedicated to fighting and completing my mission. In English: things to make holes, things to plug holes and things to make holes in the ground and everything on it.
All my fight and mission gear is either on my plate carrier or my MAP/Day pack.
Mostly I work only with a MAP style bag on my back because it’s more streamlined and smaller than the issued Camelbak Motherlode.
When I need to carry more food, water, munitions, batteries and what not, I will carry the issued backpack because it remains a decent pack.
|Plate Carrier (WAS DCS with LVL IV and IIIa Plates)|
|SCAR Mags x3 (WAS pouch)|
|SMK Gren (WAS pouch)|
|PRC-152 (HGG Pouch)|
|Knife (Pocket Piefighter)|
|Admin pouch (WAS)||Compass|
|GPS Dakota 20 (to double check) (WAS pouch)|
|MAP (WAS Cargo Pack) or Daypack||PRC-117G|
|Liberator III Long Cable|
|Weapon Cleaning Kit|
|Princeton MPLS LED light|
|CAT TQ (Tactical Tailor pouch)|
|Israeli Pressure Dressing|
Depending on the mission, our VDL system can be added either in the internal radio pouch of the carrier or in the issued PRC-152 pouch. Using the HMD we are able to see the video feed from our air assets, wich is a big plus!
In these pictures, I don’t have the Cargo Pack attached and my Spiritus Systems GP pouch is still attached on my plate carrier. This is the setup with our VDL system. The admin pouch can be closed, but on the pictures I stuffed it with some extra aerial pictures.
Here are some extra pictures from my last exercise:
