3CB BAF Equipment
3 Commando Brigade
The modern Royal Marines Commando or British Army soldier carries a lot of kit in addition to his weapon. This mod aims to recreate some of that equipment.
In current MTP camo, we provide updated combat uniforms, Mk4 vests, bergens, backpacks, Mk7 helmets, berets and tactical glasses. A huge variety of options enables each player to give their character a unique look on the battlefield, whether it be as an Officer, Forward Air Controller, Medic, Sapper, Signaller, Engineer, Point Man, Grenadier, Marksman, Machine Gunner or just plain Rifleman!
We've now expanded the range of combat uniform camouflage patterns to include DPM Woodland, DDPM (desert), DPM Temperate and Arctic. Along with these come accompanying sets of new Mk 2 vests, webbing, Mk 6 helmets and backpacks.
We haven't forgotten support forces either, with new uniforms, vests and helmets for RAF / RN pilots and tank crews.
