Pararescue Operators show life in the fast lane…

Ok, this is not a new nor a very rare picture but i came across it again and i think it`s worth posting it here. 🙂

Besides seeing another Elcan Specter sight in use by PJs, i was excited that a basic Paraclete HPC (without cummerbund!) was still in action! In these modern days almost each and every operator seems to wear a GACK version when it comes to Paraclete plate carriers. And it`s nice that PJs still use flight suits and not only Crye Gucci gear (…and you`ll already know that oldskool is trueskool! Go ask Arnold, Sly or JC!) .
The attached grenade launcher is dope, isn`t it? (I think i will have to buy one at last – no more excuses! Hahaha! 🙂 )!

What do you think about the colour the Elcan has? In my opinion it looks like a black version and not to be a flat dark earth one. Another reason to get a black Elcan replica? Yes! 🙂
I feel that this day costs me more money than expected! I need to chill out, where are my beers? Cheers! 😎

Briggs, the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing commander, during a training mission at Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan, Sept. 24, 2010. The training mission provided a glimpse of what the 33rd ERQS brings to the fight and the capabilities it provides to combat commanders. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Christopher Boitz)

  1. The guy wearing the flight suit is actually the Brigadier General. 😉
