    Recently made 2 SADF loadouts, figured I'd share them here.

    First one from the 70's - mid-80's.

    Gear:

    Early type Nutria color uniform (shirt, field jacket, trousers, all with pointy pocketflaps)
    M63 helmet with net and burlap cover
    1970 Pattern kidney-pouches-belt assembly
    P70 H-suspenders
    4 P70 R1 (FN FAL) magazine pouches
    P70 canteenpouch with plastic canteen
    R1 bayonet (FN FAL type C) with nylon scabbard
    2 Different P70 bayonet frogs (R1 and Uzi?)
    An extra bayonet scabbard out of steel (added later, so not shown)
    P70 backpack with shoulder straps
    P70 groundsheet/poncho carrier with poncho
    Brown boots (breadthwise stripes sole pattern, 1971 dated)

    In the background:
    P70 patrol bag with sling
    P70 snap buttoned belt

    And then one from around 1987 until mid 90's, whenever the Soldier 2000 camo uniform was introduced (which wasn't 2000 as the name implies).

    Late type Nutria color uniform (shirt, trousers, both with straight pocketflaps)
    M87 helmet with 2nd type Nutria cover
    Nutria bushhat
    1983 pattern tactical vest
    P83 canteen
    P70 snap buttoned belt
    Brown boots (breadthwise stripes sole pattern, 1971 dated)

    Nice, aside from the helmet looks almost the same as mine. What are the boots though, they look black?
    And the gun, is it a deact?

    I think your helmet is a Pattern 87 which is similar to the US PASGT. The Rifle is an Airsoft Galil

    Yes exactly, mine's the M87, earlier production, without the visor attachment holes found on some later made ones.
    And nice boots, better condition than mine. I had to polish them over several times to recolor them again, and in certain light conditions they still have a slightly weird hue to them in places.
