    Cool ref pics, thanks for sharing them! I guess the good news is that there isn't much there to distinguish them from a high-speed operator in Multicam other than the Australian flag patch, so bashing SASR shouldn't be too hard. Dragon did some Auscam in the past I think, but nobody's touched it recently.

    Nice ref shots there. Some of the more obviously staged ones are a bit cringe worthy.

    I'm bashing one! Any idea what vest they're using?
    Or to simplify things-can I get them off-the-shelf?

    David, Its an EBR which were used in the interim (and probably still in use) until they settled on a designated Marksmans Rifle (HK 417 was selected). Incidently it is being carried by Cpl Ben Roberts VC.

    Crye uniforms are fine to use, too. Both Soldier Story and Crazy Dummy ones are good.
    Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.

    The SASR trooper not disguised in the two photos above are of Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith of E Troop who has served five tours of duty in Afganistan.
    He was awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions in Tizak (Afganistan) on 11 June 2010.

    I like auscam a lot more. Multicam just makes them look like any other soldier.
