    I don't about the airsofters, but it does annoy soldiers who have to earn to the right to wear them.

    Personally it dosent bother me Very Happy

    Tyler, I dont wear the roundels if i use any of my shirts to play wargames unless they are like my uncles or my dads DPMs or something and sewn on.
    Sometime I might have chance to wear one properly myself though Wink

    Yes they are being made in MCU, I have one in MTP and in DDPM and they are amazing for wear under a full plate carrier, they dont let you overheat at all really. and I have got the IBA tan plate carrier somewhere, Just spotted a corner of it in the J-hat photo Smile

    Haha thats similar to what my smock liner is used for most times,
    And they arent really fussed about it, just some politically correct players see it as disrespectful, personally I see it more disrespectful to tear the patches off the shirts or brassards if they arent velcro.

    All active role kiwi soldiers that I know are all happy for me to leave the patches on if I use their shirt in a game, even though I have never been deployed. Obviously as long as I dont "pretend" that I was the one who actually EARNED them Smile

    Well the Kiwi Roundall patch is what alot of soldiers in the army wear as we already know the reason a few ASNZ clubs do not like people wearing them is because it is disrespectfull im blocked off militaryphotos.net unfortunantly one of the Local Club reps in my reigon decided to blasthmey my name anyhow yeh . Its just a respect thing I guess especially to all serving and past soldiers , thats why I've sold mine .

    This question has been answered on here a few times,

    Yes the NZ Army will eventually phase out DPM items which will be replaced by MCU and CB/CT colour items.

    IIRC, the reason you were blocked from militaryphotos.net was when the Mods and an Ex-UN Soldier complained about your avatar including an image of you wearing the blue United Nations roundel...?
