    Nice catch's Steve!

    I believe you dont mixed them and that they are still both in use. Have to check on my spanish Soldier Raids magazines for that a special issue came out at the end of last years about Infanteria de Mariña

    Albano,

    Thanks for double checking. Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are both designed for the HK and are probably both in use. Or at least were in use together for a while.

    Steve,

    I'd love to see my whole collection someday too. It's so badly organized now I am not quite sure what I have Smile

    The last pictures is an ALTUS vest for G36 magazines and GOE units (Special Operation Group) wear it.

    Well, nowadays this vest is too extended between different land troops, but at the beginning it used to be worn by GOE units. There is a similar vest with a different color and pouches for Navy, I think that vest it's the third picture in your post.

    Fenixspook it's right. I gave a look at all my spanish Soldiers Raids from last 2 years and all pics show that type of vest in use with all kind of units (i.e. armoured infantry, infantry, engeniers, marines, etc.) so it could be that your 1st modell is actually the 2nd modell. In other hand i couldn't find any pic reference with the vest in your last pic Shocked

    For sure the 3rd picture I have was worn by Marines. At least initially. I have pictures of them on parade in this type, which is obviously different from the one in the 4th picture.

    At the moment I am considering the 3rd picture to be Navy/Marines, the 4th picture to be Army (GOE to start, but probably others now). No 1st or 2nd model designation since they apparently were both produced for different users.

    Correct. 3rd picture is current Navy vest and 4th picture is currect Land troops vest. In regard to 1st and 2nd I don't know very well, but I think it was used for every unit. I'll try to clarify.
