hey guys,

was wondering of some of you have any ideas how to bash a helicopter sniper (bbi's hawkeye is outdated me thinks)

so far i have come up with

3 color desert bdu (dml)
sopmod m14 (dr. figures)
boots (bbi trident/barney)
tan plate carrier + pouches (TS)
black body armour (dml)
tan protec helmet (TS)
tan goggles (AFA)

i have no clue if a configuration as listed above may be realistic, reason for me to ask you guys your view on what a contemporary äirborne"sniper should/could look like.

pics on the net are, as far i can tell, plain absent

fellow bashing brethren, i greet you all from my humble little country we call the netherlands

you can find plenty of PMC helicopter snipers around if thats what you want to bash otherwise a special operations helicopter sniper is a good choice as well.

helicopter helmet, with the pull down visor is a must

All that could work.
Although, if your going for the most modern you might want to use ACU's instead of Desert BDU's.
But it's your call, most elite troops have gone full ACU from what I've seen.

Looking froward to pics !

I did one before. I used the aircrew vest that comes with the HT 160 SOAR which comes with a oxygen breather tank and i equiped him with a aircrew helmet cos since he is operating in a helicoptor, i guess he should at least have some comms with the pilot.

What i noticed that is lacking from my figure is the safety harness cos it seemed most of the SEALs heli snipers have some kind of safety ropes to prevent them from falling out of the helicoptor when the helicoptor rocks while they are shooting.

May not be very accurate though cos photos of these guys are kind reclusive :) Hope it gives u some inpiration though.

yeah, the net comes up empty, sure do wish there were some (aside from small amounts of PMC air support ... are they really snipers or just regular contractors providing basic aerial support ?)

that link i posted has a few helicopter sniper pics...and they look like regular Army Infantry snipers...so there are "regular" snipers assigned to provide cover fire for ops...not just Spec Op units...the pics are a pretty good basis to work off of..

update

since i like to bash a specops arial sniper i have chosen to go for the Half-Head ballistic helmet in combination with a Peltor dual channel ComTac headset with boom mic

let me know what you think...

a safety harness will be added but i'm not sure what vest/plate is best suited.
