Yes it is, although you can't see it in the pictures. I have it inside the ruck with the antenna tucked down into the radio bag on the side of the ruck. Having a radio made you a target, so the guys would hide it as much as possible. I even have an extra handset in there.

Shady, what is that on the right(looking at the picture), on the first picture, it has a bunch of holes?
I bet that was a lot of fun!

Depends on what kind of game you're looking to play. WW2 is more single shot/semi auto, which is challenging in it's own right. But primary weapons in Nam were full auto on both sides, which seems to lend itself to airsoft trends.

I love it. There seems to be an issue with transmission volume, I apparently come across quite soft. It may just be an issue with the radio I'm using in it. I still love it. It's a great piece of kit.

Is the first photo staged? Or is that guy really playing without eye wear?
I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

alright,
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on a full 1956 gear from my friend (except the belt which is a davis ...)

Now, I was never a collector of gears and such, so I still have alot to learn...
In this pic we were playing a cqb scenario and decided to go for the SEAL with jeans look.

I do have the full tiger-stripe bdu...and probably going for the LRRP look in the future.
Most of the pics I've seen with Navy SEAL is with ERDL top....but I guess they also wore tiger-stripe with jeans .

don't pay attention to the bright orange Ka-Bar...That is brand spanking new...I still need to get a worn look on it.
And also, the jeans...i couldn't find decent 501's without shelling out a fortune...

ya, the middle guy is not vietnam....WWII german para. We found him hiding in the nearby bushes.... :roll:

Do they not have Levi's in Taiwan, or just not 501s? They cost forty bucks here, unless you find a sale. My only comment on the actual pics is that yo look a bit skinny to be a SEAl :D

They do have 501 here of course. Just too expensive ... I rather spend it on some other gears.

Skinny huh? Hahaha, I guess maybe i'm more suited for this role....

This is the real combat equipments I'm actually looking for. I like the uniform he used here especially the phone stuff. Are all Vietnam soldiers use the same uniforms?
