Alright, so I said fuck it and got the new Relentless pack in Ghost Recon. Definitely glad I did. It contained a new rifle, a Benelli M4 Super 90, the old school ALICE LBE (very retro, I dig it) like my pops wore before the IIFS came out, and a version of the Crye combat shirt with the sleeves rolled up. The Crye JPC (I usually select it in khaki/sandtone or in multiglam since it's close enough to the MBAV's we wore, see last 2 pics) was also made available in another pack that was free to season pass holders.
I was most excited and immediately went for the ALICE LBE in OD green along with an OD green patrol cap (pics 1-3), because reasons dammit! Inspiration came from one of my mentors, Ranger Mingo K (see pic 4). The ALICE, or All-purpose Lightweight Individual Carrying Equipment was introduced in 1973 replacing both the M1956 LCE and M1967MLCE. Now they just need to add the ALICE pack to the game! Can't decide if I want to rock the M4A1 or the more classic M16 w/M203 with it (cast your votes)
What I like about it, is it fixes something that was annoying. Anytime you had an assault rifle selected, no matter what rifle you had, your character always had pmags on them in the mag pouches (even if you had an AK, SCAR, or the M4/M16 with GI mags). Since ALICE has closed flap mag pouches problem solved. The fact that it also looks cool is just an added bonus. Now if only they could add the Individual Integrated Fighting System (which replaced ALICE), the Chicom Type 56 chest rig, or some newer school chest rigs.
In the forums, there were people complaining that it's too old school and "not practical". Like c'mon, as it is set up standardized, you character in theory could carry - 6x mags (3x 30 round mags in each pouch), 4x grenades, and 2x 1 quart canteens (that can be filled with beer, mjöd, or whiskey.... wait what). Perfect for the school Ranger at heart, what more do you need? Haha ☀️⚡🌟🏴🏴😂😂
