Very odd to see soldiers in that kit. Has anyone come any closer to figuring out why the non-spec battle jacket was being used?



I would not say it is none spec. I mean 32 battalion did accept it in the early 90s.

Maybe they want something lighter and smaller for QRF teams. Not all of them where useing it.

Gimme an M83 any day.

That other one looks too small.

Could be African Warrior testing? Is that still even a thing?



Well I do like the m83 more since it can carry more. There must be something about it that is good.

Yes it is on. But it is comeing out In stages. I don't think this is related. The kit is not new just not been used for 20 years.

Does look more user friendly for adjustment...

One downside of the M83. :?

Tangent: In fact want to get the chest rig now in addition to my vest.
