I was wondering if anyone knows if they actually fielded the PASGT vest in Iraq or Afghanistan in OIF or OEF? I know they made a cover for it in 3 color, but would it be accurate to display it? Thanks.
Did the soldier have the 3 color cover on the vest?nkomo wrote:Drew,
In short...yes they did use the PASGT during the first parts of OIF and part of OEF. There is a picture of a Marine (member of USMF) wearing one while serving in Iraq. I am not sure if the other services used the PASGT, but I know the Marines did. I would imagine it would have been for more rear-echelon soldiers, but that is pure conjecture on my part. If you used it as a display for an early OIF or OEF set up, you should be okay. I would assume that the woodland LBV would be the appropraite webgear.
the left one is an iba, that's right.nkomo wrote:
If you are talking about the soldier half out of the tank ...he is wearing an Interceptor vest. Notice the loops that are on top of each other.
