MK18 MOD1 with NSW operators from the country.
These photos are from the NSW operator provide to Daniel Defence, this will give you guys how their MK18 MOD1 look like in the front line.
Hope all of you may enjoy the pic
First of all, I would like to apology to all the readers of my blog and was not able to keep the promise of the updates on the blog.
Now I am back and I will be putting more review on the NSW gear in the coming year of 2011. Cheers to all and now lets get started.
The photo below indicates the vest which will be putting on for review in this page
When I first saw this photo, I realize the there is something special about the NSW operator’s vest cause it was digital desert so called AOR1 but at that time I did not know which manufacture made this vest and there is no other details on this vest, but after 2 years of time I was lucky enough to get one to my hand and when I receive this plate carrier the memory of that photo just appear in my mind. I was glad to see the actual vest and it even comes with extra bonus which is the level 3 and level 4 protection soft and hard amour.
“Now let’s take a look at the front of the plate carrier”
The cutting may look like the E.I CIRAS but actually the cutting of this vest is actually a lot more comfortable then the CIRAS cut specially the shoulder straps it may look thing and does not have the padding like the CIRAS and usually we think it will give more pressure to the operator’s shoulder but magically it doesn’t give any uncomfortable feeling to the shoulder. It has 7 lines of nylon molle strap and 42 molle blocks, the stitching of the molle blocks is very precised and can easily put in the pouches.
“SIDE PANEL OF THE PTAC”
The side panel is similar to the land version of the CIRAS, it has the double layers of the side panel, the first layer on the outside just simply carries molle pouches and other accessories. From this photo below you can see that it gives a bigger space for the operator to move their arm during any mission and the back side of the carrier is longer then the front side which means it will help the operator to get less weight in the back.
“SIDE INNER PANEL”
The inner layer of the vest also has the molle for more pouch attachments.
There is a 2nd inner layer of the side panel, the 2nd layer which can carry the SOF side plate for more protection.
“BACK VIEW OF THE PTAC”
The design is very impressive from the plate insert, usually plate carriers insert the plates from the bottom but this PTAC is the other way around to inset the plate from above, this helps the plate to be more secure and wont fall off during most of the the combat situation, inside the plate holding layer it also has a hydration bladder insert space so you dont need to carry another hydration pouch out and save the back molle for other tactical purpose items such like flash bang, extra magazines, door charge and ect.
SET UP WITH THE AOR1 LBT-2586A M4
CONFIGURATION A- Leaving the front of the PTAC clear so during pron position the pouches wont press against the chest front.
Putting the Admin pouch in the front center and one utility pouch and the left side and one radio pouch at the right side.
Conclusion, this is a very good plate carrier for direct action mission, it is compact and the same time it can carry out the stuff that fits your mission and also can have protection from Level 3 soft armour, Level 4 strike plate and side strike plate, I would say this will be a good choice for the operators out there and will have the Gen 2 PTAC review coming up next.
Thank you for reading, cheers to all
“NSW OPERATOR WITH HK MP7-A1″
Saw this NSW operator with the MP7 photo about a month ago, before seeing the SEALs with the MP7, I did not have much impression about the rifle, just heard that it was very compact but yet very lethal compare to the MP5 and UMP series cause of the ammo this rifle carries is 4.6x30mm compare to the 9mm and .45.
SEALs has high mobility speed and they have to go deep into enemy territories with the shadow. This rifle would be perfect to fit in what SEALs need in their operation. Therefore LBT has design the vest just for the operator who carriers this weapon in the battle field. Basically you can only see the vest name in the official home page but you can see the image of the vest, so here I bring this photo to all you readers to see this vest the ” LBT-2586B MP7″
“LBT MP7 LOW PROFILE CHEST VEST”
” 5 MAJOR COMPONENTS”
The first photo with the general feature of the vest is how it looks like when you put all the pouches on the vest and 2nd photo I separate 5 pouches so it will be easier for you readers to see what pouches are includes in this vest, as I marked the number of the 5 major components in the photo, please check the details below to see the 5 different pouches.
- Molle low profile chest vest
- Admin/Utility Pouch
- Smoke Grenade/Flash Bang/Utility Pouch
- Smoke Grenade/Flash Bang/Utility Pouch
- Molle Radio/Pistol holder pouch
LBT-2586B MP7 comes in 2 colors, Coyote Tan and Multicam, 2 photos above is the color ” Coyote TAN” people use to confused with the coyote brown. Recently SEALs has their own color compare to the other SOF units, this pattern is the AOR1/Digital Desert. There are some of you might doubt is this really used by the NSW operator, or people usually ask me ” Do you have a photo of they are using this vest?” Well the answer is NO, and you dont need every single photo to see the truth, just need to pay attention to detail and you will find the truth. Now lets take a look into the details of this NSW low profile chest vest.
“NSW LBT-2586B MP7″
The AOR1 version has one main difference compare to the coyote tan version, that will be cordura denim, usually this vest is build with 1000D cordura but this special version is build by the 330D, people’s first impression will have 3 common questions ” Is 330D tough enough to go through all the operations?” and ” Why are they using 330D instead of 1000D, isn’t 1000D is more durable compare to the 330D?” I will answer the 3 questions in my opinion after checking this vest.
Q: Is 330D tough enough to go through all the operations?
A: Yes it is enough for you to crow around and dig yourself into the mud and sand.
Q:Why are they using 330D instead of 1000D?
A: Because it is much light and softer compare to the 1000D, it gives the operator better comfort when they have heavy load of gear and ammo
Q:Isn’t 1000D is more durable compare to the 330D?
A:Yes it is a lot more durable then the 330D but it is so though that it will take years before it starts to rip and it is too heavy compare to the 330D. And 330D also dries up quicker compare to the 1000D.
With the 3 Q&A, hope this will help people’s questions in their mind, now lets take a look of the details of the vest from left to right, actually this is molle low pro chest rig meaning you can compose the position of the pouches where every you want but this is just a sample set up.
“LEFT SIDE CONFIG”
On the left side of the vest, I attached the 2 utillity pouches, this pouch can fit smoke grenade x1 and Mk141 x1 and it also can fit one M4 30 round magazine. it seems small but it actually can expand to fit variations of gear and ammo.
“MID PART OF THE 2586-B”
The admin/utility pouch was placed in the middle of this vest, you can put the unit patch or any other reflective patches at the front side of the panel which has the Velcro on it.
Inside each pouch has the LBT tag with the description, this pouch can fit about 3 MK141 or 6 pieces of 9mm pistol magazines or other accessories like knifes,surefire or other tools.
“THE RIGHT SIDE CONFIG”
The radio with molle strap was placed at the right side of the vest, this radio pouch looks quite small compare to the others but it actually can fit PRC148 without any difficulty and some operators can also place his pistol in this pouch.
“THE SHOULDER STRAP”
The Last detail lets take a look into will be the shoulder strap, it is simple but yet very comfortable specially LBT has choose the soft nylon webbing compare to the 1000d version, on the shoulder strap it also has 4 elastic band to hold the water host line, radio anttena or other stuff like radio PTT or carabiner.
The LBT-2586B-MP7 will be a good choice for the operator or any other MP7 users, this vest is light, easy to wear and can holds all the stuff you be needing, you can also wear it over a plate carrier and it wont even be bothering you and makes you feel bulky cause of it’s design, it is thing but yet it can be wear easily and with the 4 quick release buckle you can quickly release the vest during the battle when facing situations that you might need to drop your vest and keep your plate carrier.
Thank you all for reading and support my blog.
Cheers to all.
First time I know there was LBT-1961A in ACU was way back at 2006, the ACU model was not even in the official website, I got the ACU version by mistake send by LBT, so I called them up and ask , the answer I got that time was the NSW operators was using this ACU model but I was only 50% percent convinced cause as you know how salesman will do anything to push out their products to the consumer still when I look at the vest I think this chest rig has better camouflage effect in urban environment than the khaki version specially in those concrete wall but that time I was still a ” TOO SEE IS TO BELIEVE” dude so I still return the ACU 1961A back to LBT and changed for the khaki version.

Until few month ago, I saw this NAVY SEAL “KISS” VIDEO in the web and was able to catch some photos on one of the SEAL operator was using the 1961A ACU version, In the photo you can tell that the operator is wearing the 2nd gen HPFU combat uniform, there are some rumor saying that the first version was the ” NAVY VERSION” and the 2nd gen is the ” CIVILIAN VERSION”, but this myst just got ” BUSTED” by the SEAL “KISS” photo, there are people who would like to stick with the past but for my understand, SEALs like New toys, and NEW gear and new challenge in any moment of their life. They wont care what version of BDU they are using, as long as it is working more efficiently and gets their job done faster and smoother.

From the video of D.E.A F.A.S.T team together with the U.S Navy Sailors in Afghanistan doing their drug busting to cut down the Terrorists financial founds, I found some thing familiar in the video which is the ” Dump Pouch” on most of the operators belt. First look I was pretty sure it was made by the tactical brand C.S.M but I had a little doubt cause of its color it is dark tan, it is quite dark compare to the dump pouch before. There are 3 photos I crop down from the video during the extraction of the NSW operator with the C.S.M Dump pouch.
Until I saw these photos and video I did not know the difference between the military issue and the civilian model of the dump pouch and for a good chance of luck I was able to find the “military version CSM dump pouch”, now lets take a look and see.
SEAL OPERATOR WITH THE EARLY VERSION OF THE DUMP POUCH IN 3-DESERT COLOR
The dump pouch at the left is the early version and comes with the black tag beside the tag color different you can see I put the arrow to point out the difference between the early version and the current version that the S.O.F are using.
A) The nylon cord with the washer and lock button was original place at the front side of the dump pouch but the latest version they have change it to the back for fast tighten up the pouch to ensure that what ever is important in that pouch wont be lost or drop during the operation also it was replace at the back side for safety reason, it is harder to break when it is more near the body.
B) The latest mil version also comes with the velcro and the foldable function so that when the pouch is empty or not used the operator cant fold it up and when they need to use it just simple pull the velcro strap down and the dump pouch will also be ready in action.
Finally lets take a look at the tag of this dump pouch it has the “NSN” number compare to the commercial version.
These patches was used during mission of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s special-ops Foreign Advisory and Support Team in Afghanistan. This was a capture/kill mission that took place on 9/11 to take out a taliban kingpin who was a large drug facilitator in Kandahar province. The raid turned up heroin, opium, precursor chemicals and bomb-making materials. The explosion toward the end of the piece is those items going up in smoke.
It has been quite a while that the SEALs and DEA has work together for drug bust after those snakes in Panama. For stopping the terrorist the most important and vital is to attack them from their money supply, many people may not know that how those terrorist get their funds is from selling pirated CD and drugs also the guns in the black market. To be able to stop them and their activities, the operators has to go down where it begins.
The patch from the left was used by the D.E.A agent and the one from the right was used by the N.S.W Operators,

From the previous review on the Invisio M3 model, This is the another version of the invisio, The M4 series is the advance model of the M3.
This headset is custom made for each person’s ear shape to fit exactly on the person’s ear only, the reason for doing that is to decreased the stress when you wear this headset on your ear for very long time during the operation. This headset has been order by the US NAVY SEALs for more then 2000 set at the year of 2009.
Front View of M4s, which has the laser marking of ” R” right ear and the brand ” INVISIO”
Now when I first saw the headset I was wonder how the headset was made and can be done? After the meeting with INVISIO, I get to know how the headset is made to fit each other person’s different ear shapes, when you purchased the M4 series, first thing you need to do is made your ear molding and send the molding to the local dealer and it will be 3d scan and cut out the shape with very accurate precision laser and it will be exactly fit to your ear.
The Inner view of the Invisio M4s, as you can see there is a small whole on the ear piece and that is for receiving the sound. and the small black part is sensor for the bone vibration it can capture the vibration and convert it to sound, it is really amazing that you can put that black part anywhere your body and it can transmit the vibration into sound. I really got surprise how accurate the sound is and you can even whisper very lightly and it still clear as crystal.
FEATURES OF THE INVISIO M4S
- Custom made by polymer ear molds that can fit extreme environments
- Vibration sensing bone conduction for clear speach total elimination of Ambient noises
- High performance balanced speaker with low distortion
- Ultra light weight and small form factor
- Kevlar reinforce cable with Teflon insulation and a pull strength of over 20KG
- Submersible under 20 meters
- Unique whisper function
- Compatible with helmets, gas masks
Many people have seen this headset on the photos and personally when I first saw it on the photo, I just had this doubt in my mind that is this ” Tinny Thing” really good? and as normal people has this mind set that ” HUGE is GOOD” but in the world of electronic devices that will be the opposite the smaller you are the price is higher and besides this headset is ” STRONG, SMALL, COMFORTABLE that is the ultimate reason the true operators chooses to fit there mission
” It pays to be a WINNER”

NSWDG OPERATOR WITH MULTICAM LBT-CHEST RIG.
M.C GENERATION COMING SOON!!!!
COMING SOON~~~Email me for purchase reservation
Many gear mania has been debating about what version of the LBT-1961A the SEALs are currently using. And people are going for those crazy high price for the previous version of the chest rig, simply because the old version of the vest was more expose on the photos..but many people dont know that photos always delay for few years or month it can never be real time with the operators during their operations, it is for security purpose.
As LBT dealer when I first received the vest was back in the end of 2008, I have notice the difference between the 2007 version is that the bidding nylong tape was removed on the pouches of the chest rig, I was cusrious and just asked my questions and I got the feeback answer was that sometimes the bidding tape reflects under the sun and cost of exposed the operators position in the hot desert, and also the material they are using became more firm then before.
Many collectors ask me ” Is it possible to order the previous version of 1961A” and my answer is always the same as LBT USA..” NO” the new version was re design after the operators really tested on the filed and I also tell them that if the operators are not using this vest, LBT wont have it for sale in their company, the products are using by the real operators in real time..but at that time…no body would listen and believed.
Recently the photos of SEALs and DEA agent was out on the net and there it was the new version of the 1961A…maybe some people will debate as it is the Eagle Industries muti purpose chest rig, but pay attention to detail to the shoulder strap..only the LBT-1961A has the folding stich line in the middle which E.I tried to change the design little bit for not violating copy right for the patten from LBT.
will have more comparison on the LBT vs Ealge 1961A chest rig soon!
Just got the 2 patches set below, it is very simple but yet meaning full patch for the NSW operators in Iraq.
The patch on top was the remembrance of the ST10/SDV SEALS that was lost on that day, ” NEVER FORGET”
The 2nd patch below is quite unique, I did not know what the logo means, but when I first saw it I thought it was a magnetic logo but yet cant relate it to NSW operators in Iraq, then I search the logo more and I found out that it was a hurricane logo, it presents that the NSW power just like the hurricane, they are the massive destroyer (destroy the terrorist) also they are one of the most powerful special operations unit around the world. They move fast the hurricane and destroy what ever needs to be done.
The Actual ST member on the mission briefing in Iraq.07
SEAL Operator in Afghanistan with the NEVER FORGET Patch
Thank you for reading and feel free if ever I made a mistake describe the patches set.
The First time I receive the handcuff I was amazed that the design was changed and became smaller and easy to carry around compare to the plastic handcuff before, I was just thinking this could be a great choice for the operators and the law enforcers around the world. Maybe I was not attention to detail enough one of my college told me that ” HEY SEALs has been using that for long time!!!” Then I realize that it was true and the SEALs made some simple and very usefull modification on those handcuffs.
This is the original shape of the tri-fold handcuff but I notice that there is a small problem that if the user of the handcuff needs to tight up the suspect or terrorist quick it might not be that smooth unless you were able to pull the 2 plastic part higer then the original position.
Actual photo of a SEAL operator with the modification on the tri fold
The MODs that the operator did was drill 2 wholes on the tip of the handcuffs and tight up with the military cord so that once you secure the suspect you just have to put his hands inside the handcuff and pull the cord tight it will instanly tighten the handcuff to secure the suspects hands.
This is how the handcuff look like after the operator modification.
Please contact me if there is anyting I can help. Thank you
FALLUJAH, IRAQ – JULY 27: U.S. Navy SEALs prepare for a mission to capture Iraqi insurgent leaders July 27, 2007 near Fallujah, Iraq.
I have been contribute to naval specail warfare foundation for years and I made this shirt to gain little funds to support to our fellow frog warriors who are currently in the war conflict and also to those who were retired and needed the support.
Now lets take a look at the shirt
The shirt has the skeleton frog at the back just like what the SEAL operator did on their plate carrier in iraq.
It is also with the letter “X” and “TXUI” at the top and also never forget, never forgive on operation red wing 2005.
From the photo below as you can see at the right side on the frog poster which also says “X” “TX..” There were only few pics about SEALs in iraq at the time and when I just look at the symbol “X” and TX I could not relate anything from it.
After time passed by there was another photo came was release and I was able to see the symbol at the right side which says ” UI”. So when I combinded ” TX” and “UI” , I was able to relate the 2 and if I am not mistake, “X” meanST-10 and “TXUI” means Team 10 Unit One
Front side of the shirt
The front side of the T shirt just have a simple logo which is “SPARTAN” Warrior logo, the SEALs were also carring that patch during their operations
“BLACK SPARTAN PATCH” Using by the SEALs in Iraq
If any fellow frogs would like to get one of this shirt, please contact me by email and leave your address, buds’ class , platoon call sign.
Thanks to ALL, ” HOOYAH!!!”
From the famous new NSW testing camoflage pattern, AOR1, AOR2 tested by the DEVGRU thesedays, also with many romours that the SEALs will change their camoflage pattern for their operations, we tend to forget about the popular camoflage pattern “CYRE MULTICAM” until this moment we have no idea what is the new pattern that the SOF will be using in the near future.
When I first heard about this ki and a friend of mine showed me the website indicates DEVGRU bought 70 kits at the year of 2007t, I was very surprised that DEVGRU will be considering to test the multicam pattern but the same time I realize how silly I am, NSW-DEVGRU=Naval Special Warfare Development Group, they are the guys who can get first hand on any of the ” NEW TOYS” before any other NSW operators and they are the one who tested all the gear and write down the evaluation of the new gear so that socom will also consider their opinion regarding to issue the item to NSWC
Here is the text I got from the website indicated that DEVGRU has purchase about 70 sets of the 1961A-R kit at year 2007
Got some info that 2009, the frogs bought another batch of the Kits and I was lucky to get my hands those kits.
From the LBT tag you can see it was released on Feb.2009

Hoping to see the actual operato’s photo with the kit.
From the very mysterious AOR1 or so called DG2 tested firstly by the ST6 members also known as DEVGRU, the first time I saw this pattern I thought it was just normaly like the marines digital bdu but once I look into the details, I found out the color has slightly different and the SEALs are using the combat suit was made by Crye Precision for testing purpose in desert warfare. I once saw the CP DG2 uniform for auction on ebay, just the shirt alone will cost about 800 USD, the price was so crazy and I could not spend that much just for a shirt.
Later on, I was told that the SEALs bought 1100 sets of the HPFU instead of the CP version, even though there was no photos that SEALs were using that time but I still belive the source that SEALs were using this bdu set as for their combat missions. So I decide to order them since last year november but I only get my hands on only one set after 4 month of waiting. I waited so long and almost even forgot about it.
FIELD COMBAT PANTS
When I just received the set of the uniform and my bill the same time, from the outside look I cant belive how expensive this bdu set is, later on when I open the packaging , I realize why this unifrom is so expensive, now take a look at the pic below all the pockets on the shirt and pants all have the ” Integrated Tourniquet System” the whole set comes with 8 pieces of theIntegrated Tourniquet System and the shirt may also look simple but it also have the fire resistance function.
After checking more about this uniform set, I realize this is not just normal bdu in the market, the worksmanship is really detail and comes with strong and holding stiches in every part of the uniform, it is so complicated that I think to make this set labor fee must be really higher then all others in the market.

KEY WEST, Fla. (April 28, 2009) A Special Warfare Combatant-Craft Crewman (SWCC) assigned to Special Boat Team (SBT) 20 navigates a rigid-hull inflatable boat while SEALs from a West Coast based SEAL team board a yacht for a scene in the upcoming Bandito Brothers production titled ¨I Am That Man? due in theaters in 2010.

First time to see the patch on the photo, I thought it was just a simple IR patch with white stencil number spray paint on it and I did not know what was the patch for either. Later on when I was able to get my hands on this patch I realize it is much better then what I just though the patch would be, It is a reversable, dual IR unit patch for the SEAL operators, the number indicates or identify the operator among the SEAL TEAM members, they would just fast glim on the number and know who is their fellow brother beside them during combat missions. the black side I called it “SIDE A” have both IR reflection and night glow on the letter 13 so the operator can also see it without the NVG and the IR function is much brighter then the “SIDE B” Khaki side.
This is the “SIDE B” the low profile khaki side of the patch, it is not as easy to identify as the “SIDE A” because it is specially design for when operators are using NVG during their operation. on the patch they used tan color codura for covering the IR and only expose the number with laser cutting on the codura so I think this work craft is really complicated and it has real IR reflect function, it is way better then other fake IR patches out there in the market.
Will post the night glow and under NVG mode patch photos soon.

It is all started a year ago from the photo of SEAL TEAM 10 members prepairing for night patrol in Iraq Fallujah, this maybe a simple piece but this photo has catches many gear mania or collectors eyes, the first thing I notice last year was the LBT-6094A plate carrier and we also notice the plate carrier the SEAL operator at the righ side is wearing, at first we thought it was self modification of the PACA low vis bullet proof vest but we still has not even a clue about the vest the SEAL was wearing.
Here is also the next photo that SEAL operators is prepairing their gear for the night patrol, first time I saw the pic and try to analyze the special chest rig is infront of the plate carrier but yet it is all mystery for me and other collectors when the pic just came out from the net.
After few months on research and a good friend of mine told me about the vest but the vest company is real hard to deal with because the company’s phone number is on answering machine for 24/7 and they will only answer you when they are free, but this does not make me give up and I called, emailed and faxed almost every other day and now finally I got to receive few sets of this plate carrier set on my hand.
