New commando uniform for Royal Marines

"Elite commandos of the Royal Navy are undertaking a bold modernisation project – known as the Future Commando Force programme – which will overhaul the way world famous Green Berets operate around the globe. As part of this restructuring, Royal Marines will have a new uniform, fit for a new era of warfare, that is in-keeping with the maritime traditions of the corps, and also honours their commando forebears."

"Royal Marines commandant general major general Matt Holmes said: “The Vanguard Strike Company will lead and inform how the Royal Marines and Army Commandos will operate and fight in a dynamic, technological era of warfare.
“We envisage several of these networked sub-units persistently forward deployed around the globe, with an array of sophisticated enabling capabilities, to present dilemmas to adversaries whilst supporting partners.
“These will all be at high-readiness, as a capable forward contingency force at the core of the Royal Navy’s Littoral Response Groups.”

That longgun looks very similar to the one in my closet - minus the ACOG(EOTECH fiend). 8-) The Crye rocks everyday.

The Royal Marines have a long and storied similar honorable history alongside the USSF/OSS...We are and will forever be Brothers of the Sword.

(That knife is gold plated and weighs about 12lbs. It is truly a masterpiece. I'm honored to own it as it is a piece of history)
