    AASAM 2010

    Post by filupe on Fri May 28, 2010 4:40 am

    The Australian Army Skill-at-Arms Meet (AASAM)is a military shooting competition held by the Australian Army in mid-May at Puckapunyal Military Range, Victoria.
    In addition to Brigade and Unit teams from within the Australian Armed Forces, international military teams are also invited to attend.

    This year international attendees included teams from:

    Brunei
    Canada
    East Timor
    Indonesia
    Singapore
    Thailand
    Papua New Guinea
    Philippines
    and a French Marine contingent from New Caledonia


    Enjoy the pics!


    Shooter from the Australian Navy team wearing DPNU and Boarders Load Bearing Vest incorporating an inbuilt flotation device




    Shooter from Singapore Army wearing new pixellised camouflage and Singapore produced Israeli-type webbing modified with ALICE harness fitted



    Shooter and Coach from Philippines Army wearing distinctive dark DPM pattern



    Indonesian Army shooter with Pindad SS-2 V4 5.56mm Assault Rifle. This firer was the only one in the team wearing the furry hat. All participants from the Pacific Rim, indeed, even from Northern Australia found the climate particularly frigid. The Canadians, on the other hand, thought it was summer ....



    Shooter from Papua New Guinea Defence Force. Normally armed with M-16A2's, in this case, they used borrowed weapons from the ADF. Note the Australian pattern webbing done in DPM cordura.



    The ammo loading table at the Mechanical Target Range. Note new Thai digitalised pattern and cold weather DPM jackets worn by the Indonesians.



    Teams lining up for the Machine Gun shoot. Note the Canadians in front with different shades of Cadpat due to wear. A glitch in paperwork stopped their weapons coming into US airspace so they came to Australia and shot with borrowed ADF Minimis and M-4 carbines (albeit with their own scopes).




    Singapore Army Ultimax LMG topped with Trijicon ACOG.



    Para-Minimi used by French New Caledonia contingent garnered a lot of interest amongst firers


    The new F88 Austeyr now factory finished for desert conditions


    Philippine Army M-16 flat-topped with what appears to be Nightforce optics


    Indonesian Army Ultimax LMG differed in small details from their Singaporean counterparts, most notably in their optics.


    French FAMAS G2 version topped with 4 times 'Scrottie' Optic sight. Most of the French were using Blackhawk OD chest rigs. One can also make out the RPIMa (Marine Para) subdued insignia velcroed to the webbing.


    Puckapunyal is also home to the Royal Australian Armoured Corps Museum which boasts a multitude of interesting tracked vehicles and displays. The display case featured shows memorabilia brought back from Iraq




    This pic and the two following show a mannequin set up as an armoured crewman as he would have looked in Iraq. Note camouflaged headwear, Enhanced Combat Body Armour (ECBA) (now obsolete) and related insignia.





    Will post more pics up as I get the opportunity ...[i]

    Good eyes. Certainly appears to be ...

    On a related note, at a local army base where I was training this weekend I spotted a WO2 wearing 1st pattern DPDU but in Land 125 cut!

    No, I didn't ask him for his shirt - JNCO's don't do that ...

    Could it have been custom-tailored? That's very interesting.

    No, he was part of a group preparing to be deployed to the Middle East. The rest of the group had standard DPDU Land 125 uniforms. I'm guessing the factory where the uniforms are made had found an extra roll of the old material ...

    Oh ... wait a min . did you see is that velcro or button on the cuff you seen on their L125 cut 1st pattern shirt ?

    i remember most of the SF in late 2001 wear that , they usually remove the rear pocket and sew it back on the shoulder and some also put the velcro for patch on it , it looks like L125 nowadays.

    No, I thought of that. I didn't see the cuffs but the breast pockets were definitely the zippered type and epaulette was in the front.

    Nice pics mate. Thanks for posting. Are there more?

    I saw one of these new Indonesian cold weather jackets last weekend while I was out hunting for camo, but thought it was a commercial item. Not a lot of need for these items over here in the tropics.
    Might have to reconsider my choice to pass on it.

    cheers,
    Ben.
