    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!

    AASAM 2010 100_5489a
    Shooter from the Australian Navy team wearing DPNU and Boarders Load Bearing Vest incorporating an inbuilt flotation device



    AASAM 2010 100_5482a
    Shooter from Singapore Army wearing new pixellised camouflage and Singapore produced Israeli-type webbing modified with ALICE harness fitted


    AASAM 2010 100_5450a
    Shooter and Coach from Philippines Army wearing distinctive dark DPM pattern


    AASAM 2010 100_5461b
    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 ....


    AASAM 2010 100_5435a
    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.


    AASAM 2010 100_5455a
    The ammo loading table at the Mechanical Target Range. Note new Thai digitalised pattern and cold weather DPM jackets worn by the Indonesians.


    AASAM 2010 100_5493
    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).



    AASAM 2010 100_5475
    Singapore Army Ultimax LMG topped with Trijicon ACOG.


    AASAM 2010 100_5474
    Para-Minimi used by French New Caledonia contingent garnered a lot of interest amongst firers

    AASAM 2010 100_5446
    The new F88 Austeyr now factory finished for desert conditions

    AASAM 2010 100_5445
    Philippine Army M-16 flat-topped with what appears to be Nightforce optics

    AASAM 2010 100_5444
    Indonesian Army Ultimax LMG differed in small details from their Singaporean counterparts, most notably in their optics.

    AASAM 2010 100_5466
    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.

    AASAM 2010 100_5551
    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



    AASAM 2010 100_5553
    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.

    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!

    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.
