This NAVSOG12inch model concept was to create an image of the real operators now still in war in south country BASILAN Philippines. And this model was build by me and a very close friend of mine( HOOTER) who is also admire of the NAVSOG operators.

It took us 2 month to complete getting all the small details including the vest, bda, the m60 and to put everything on to the detail it took us another month or so…this is a long term project and we try to make it as real as we can on this model and hope to creat the impression of how the SEALs look like and what equipment carry to the battle.

Cheers to all..HOOYAH!

創作這個菲律賓海豹(NAVSOG) 12吋人偶的概念是於至今還在菲律賓南部BASILAN作戰的海豹小隊, 這個人偶是我和我ㄧ位也很欣賞菲律賓海豹好的朋友(HOOTER)做起來的..

這個人偶花了我大約2個月的時間研究和收集他們的資料包括 戰術背心 M60E3機槍 虎斑BDA 手工靴 和其他ㄧ些小細節..都收集完後..又花將近ㄧ個月的時間將裝備穿在人偶人身上. 這是ㄧ個長久的計劃,我們盡最大的能力來把這個人偶做到逼真 讓大家了解菲律賓海豹作戰的樣子和他們所帶的裝備!

謝謝大家!HOOYAH!!!

AOR1 NSW GEN1 PROTECH TACTICAL ARMOUR PLATE CARRIER

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.

 

CONFIGURATION B

Putting the Admin pouch in the front center and one utility pouch and the left side and one radio pouch at the right side.

 

“LEFT VIEW”

 

“RIGHT VIEW”

 

“BACK VIEW”

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

LBT-2586B-NSW MP7 LOW PROFILE CHEST RIG

“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.

  1. Molle low profile chest vest
  2. Admin/Utility Pouch
  3. Smoke Grenade/Flash Bang/Utility Pouch
  4. Smoke Grenade/Flash Bang/Utility Pouch
  5. 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.

“OVERALL”

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.

HOOYAH!!!
