Nothing too amazing about the gear tbh, and obviously not surprising considering its the US army, not very different from what we have in the IDF for infantry, but GOD I just cant understand how the hell do they manage to remember this footlong army division relation its like
x of y of x of y of x of y of x of y
way simpler here, Platoon (otherwise known as Company) -> Battalion (few Platoons) -> Brigade (few Battalions) -> Division (few Brigades), thats how it is in our military, most ppl only know up to their brigade, but its easy, for example my armor corps unit, Platoon M (Magen - Shield) -> Battalion 9 (Eshet - Iron) -> Brigade 401 (Ikvot ha Barzel - Tracks of Steel), knowing above that is kinda useless, but Division 162 (Changes by combat necessity and placement in the country)

but I suppose u cant blame them considering they got a frigging huge army ! they probably have more fighting soldiers per country in around 20 countries in every given moment than we have in our entire country ;p

I'm liking the set up on that M4. I'd use Magpul magazines instead, but hey can't be too picky...

Overall a very nice shot.

it's crazy how specialised and technologically advanced one soldier is these days. Even basic infantry are like something out of a 1950s sci-fi comic.

Great pic.
