NSW LBT-1961A-ACU

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.
