I have a question for y'all, does anybody know the difference between the
following kits issued throughout SOCOM:

- MLCS (used by Navspecwar / Army SF?)
- RLCS (used by Ranger btn?)
- MBSS (used by Navspecwar?)

Cheers.

I have a friend who is ARMY SF show me his MLCS gear(don't even think they call it that but I'll use it since you refer to ARMY SF) that he got issued for deployment. It consisted of all Eagle Industries gear, all in khaki tan to include CIRAS(Maritime version) vest, RRV(Rhodesian Recon Vest) chest harness platform, H-Harness platform, soft armor vest and a ton of pouches like in the pic posted by Wimpie above in post #32. He joked about how you could literally loadout 3 guys with one kit with the amount of pouches given to 1. I think there might have been more but most of that stuff was extra given to him by his Battalion supply in addition to the ginormous bag of Eagle stuff each of his team got issued. I know some of his team carried Eagle chestrigs too over their CIRAS vests from pics I have seen.

In the book "Weapons of the Rangers", the RLCS is a Eagle RRV with back plate carrier and all the pouches as in the MLCS kit for ARMY SF, except in OD.

I have no info on NSW MBSS kit.

Hope this helps.

Really nice Mr. Green, is that a paraclete concealment vest that you are running under the plate carrier?

It's the soft armor that comes with the kit. There's also a carrier that holds both the soft armor and the plates, but it doesn't offer as much webbing and flexibility. I have a different concealment vest from Point Blank.

That's not a thumb break snap back on that holster, it's a concealment holster bolted onto the armor, that's the rubber belt loop.
