Cool pics Rav.
awesome pics man, thanks for posting them up
Love the Crye Multicam uniforms.
AF Uniform Board will go ape when they figure what the operators are wearing, LOL.
I'm still in the progres of understanding the whole Multicam thingy.
Whats so 'high-speed' about it ?
Cool Pics! Thanks Again RAV!!!
It's not general issue.
There is nothing "high speed" about it. But look at the picture where the PJ's are standing next to an army dude in ACU's... need I say more? It's simply a matter of guys on the ground who make judgement calls on what works best. ACU's work great, in gravel pits. :2c:
What about desert BDUs like the ones used in '03 ?
The reason why I'm asking is because when GROM came back from Iraq/Afghanistan they requested: "we want multicam!". But because they wanted it A LOT, it could not be afforded - at the time.
Then Kama came along and made some cheap immitation of it, and now every one is so 'hyped' about that multicam thingy. Why not use the desert camo like every one did a few years ago ?
Or on the surface of the moon...
Well, the desert camoflauge that we used a few years ago was decent. But it was too bright and didn't match the colors in the Afghan desert. There are alot of greens and darker brown colors here (depending on where you are working). I personally liked wearing my woodland BDU's instead of the old desert camoflauge. Now with multicam, the color mixture and pattern seem to break up ones outline better as well as blend into the environment a bit easier.
I like them but they are built from a bit heavier material. That's why alot of us are modifying the uniform itself.
It's practical while providing a respectable military appearance. And to think some skateboarder came up with it. Maybe we need to rethink our research and development departments.
Great pic's Rav! Thanks.
The irony of Marines providing air transport for Air Force ground training is inescapable.
hey hey hey, its just cause they have 53's and we dont. Sheesh. It is funny though.
And the Crye Multicam is a great uniform. Its lightweight, breathable in hot environments, and its actually pretty durable. Great pockets placed appropriately, and it is HIGH SPEED. I have been wearing the ACU a lot lately- and i dont really have too many bad things to say about it. I wouldnt say i would wear it over the CRYE- but thats just me. And, BTW, you can NOT see that ACU at night. No shit- it is nearly impossible to see that acu in a lot of environments. Really.
Great pics rav- thanks for giving me more stuff to make fun of friends with. well done.
I've been in those exact 53's in that exact place. We called them the Death Hawks.
"Hey, we've got two master caution lights on, but we're good to go!"
not to mention after every 130 degree flight you come out smelling like sweaty ass and drenched in hydraulic fluid.
I'd kill for any other uniform than the DCUs that i wear now.
LOL, you need to come hang with me sometime.
"Which aircraft are we taking tomorrow?"
"That one Mr. J"
"Didn't that one take an RPG to the cockpit last week?"
"Yes Mr. J"
"And you're telling me it's airworthy."
"Yes Mr. J"
"Aren't you the guy that left an ice pick in the throttle linkage two days ago?"
I love my job
my wife doesn't understand why im lmao right now ... thanks four that one
Soooo......are the ABU's that bad?
