    I know ON draws a lot of water with Republicans, but isn't it kind of presumptuous to wear combat gear (except his MOLLE pouches are full of sunscreen and extra mic cable) when he's been out of the Marines for almost 2 decades, ushered out by scandal?

    looks like the MOUT that DML came out, as well as the urban boxed from BBi.

    Great pics of those rangers. Is there any way to view the pictures bigger? I'm trying to tell if they are wearing RACKs or just have the pouches attahced to the bodyarmor. Anyone have any info on that?

    Thanks for the correction Hawk.

    Youre welcome guys.

    Craig, if you are on a PC, after clicking the picture put your mouse pointer on the lower righthand corner of the picture, then you should get a expand picture button to get the full size of the image.
    And most look like they are wearin the RACK pouches directly on their FSBEs.

    Pics of Army scout sniper team and
    new USMC side armor:

    Lance Cpl. Colt J. Luman, 1st Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment serving with Regimental Combat Team 5, holds up a pair of side small-arms protective inserts, SAPIs. These new armored plates are added to the outer protective vests Marines and sailors wear in the field as part of their required personal protective equipment. Marines were recently issued the improvement, boosting their survivability. Still, some Marines harbor concerns about loss of mobility.

    Pic of side armor in the field.

    That actually looks like it might be a standard squad with its dedicated rifleman. If it was scout/sniper he'd probably have an M24, not an M14. Not 100 percent sure, but that was what I was seeing happening in squads was the dedicated rifleman/sharpshooter position being outfitted with the M14 (civilian version is the M1A made famous by Springfield Armory.) The first three pics are of 172nd Seperate Brigade from Alaska, and the 4th in the series is a soldier from 4th ID.

    You're correct that is a designated marksman. The Army snipers are issued the M24s. These marksmen, while very proficient with their weapons haven't attended the sniper school and fill a different role. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Designated_Marksman_Rifle
