Heh, more maybe we need a dedicated AS thread... or do we have one? Atleast I recall us chatting about it in the chat thread.

Well, from what I've read, the older JG (assuming it IS of JG manufacture) stuff is shite, the newest is as good as Tokyo Marui or better, as they usually also copy theirs. Specs seem to be "the usual", although the muzzle velocity/energy is a bit surprising, especially given the distance they state. Check something like Arnies airsoft for reviews, if they have some. Your call...

Woah. Never noticed how much the FN SCAR lower receiver bears resemblence to M16.

Yeah, now it's important for me to find out if they are sold as AS24 in Germany, but I think it's right.
I'm now waiting for an answer of the shop

Ask Carver he's the Airsoft Guru and I guess we need a dedicated airsoft thread.

Difficult to determine...The angle is not good. A front view picture showing the configuration of the pockets would be better in my humble opinion.

That's the only picture I've got. sad.gif If this helps anyhow, the campaigns were based on 1983-1985, so the vest must have been made somewhere around then. The vest was also used by the US crewmen and blackops in the game.

The camo is the Czech Warsaw pact camo used during the 1950's and 1960's called Ameoba. I don't suspect BIS used a vest from that same period in time, as their accuracy in regards to realism is nothing like the word would suggest, accurate.

I'll take a look in my books on Warsaw Pact armies, but I fear this vest might well have come from any place in the world, US, Malasia, UK or any country in between.

Err...If you talk about the picture above I'd say that this is just common German Flecktarn pattern. However if you talk about the camo pattern used by resistance forces in OFP, this is a very interesting matter in my opinion. It really looks like the Czech Leibermuster, but the white dots in it make me think it is more likely the former Swiss pattern

@Rellikki

Try militaryphotos.net for determination of the type of that vest. They're quite familiar there with all this gear.

Both. Most of them have the Swiss "Alpenflage" 6-colour pattern, but atleast crews and pilots wear Flecktarn.

Well, OFP's crappy texture quality might make it look like that, but at least in OFP:Elite it's clearly the Alpenflage camouflage.

Says the man with a Battlefield 2 mod in signiture...

EDIT: I've just noticed, does anyone else find that picture odd, considering the Flecktarn guys ingame don't wear vests?

They do if I remember correctly, but not the kind of vest displayed on that image above. The Mg gunner for example is equipped with something in brown/grey whilst the guys wearing the Swiss clothes have something in black... ohmy.gif

Actually no. The Flecktarn guys don't wear vests, they only have a belt.

Hi guys!

Did you hear about the new most powerful non-nuclear weapon? Russia tested yesterday their new toy. It should be four times more powerful than the U.S. MOAB (Mother of all bombs).
And there seems to be another advantage. During the USA have to drop the MOAB with a modified C-130 (MC-130 Combat Talon), the russians can drop the "FOAB" (the bomb doesn't have a name, so it's called "Father OAB") from a Tu-160 Blackjack heavy supersonic bomber (or the Tu-95 Bear). The bomb is a thermobaric weapon, also called vacuum bomb. The bomb detonate a sprays arround the chemicals (like ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, decane, ... or solids (aluminium powder)). The chemicals build a could and mix with oxygen which detonates some time later (with a second charge, or otherwise (modern bombs only need one charge). This explosion causes a very strong shockwave (430 lbf/in²) and extrem temperature (4500 to 5400 °F / 2500 to 3000 °C).

You can read this article of reuters for further informations: Russia tests superstrength bomb

What you're describing is pretty much a nuclear weapon minus the name tongue.gif

And without nuclear fission and/or fussion. Also this weapons can not be used to generate an electromagnetic pulse when they detonate in high altitudes. And there is no initial brilliant flash of light produced by the nuclear detonation causes Flash blindness.

But yes, the shockwave and the high temperature are like a little nuclear explosion.
QUOTE(Reuters)
"Test results of the new airborne weapon have shown that its efficiency and power is commensurate with a nuclear weapon," Alexander Rukshin, Russian deputy armed forces chief of staff, told Russia's state ORT First Channel television.
