I thought the carry handles were fixed, they seem to be a trend in JTF2 photos sometimes an EOtech or Aimpoint on the rail ahead of the fixed carry handle.

I thought that might have been the case, but you can see in some higher-res photos that its the rail mounted one. Plus I think they use C8SFW's, which have flat-top receivers. I'll see if I can find the picture I'm talking about.

EDIT: Here you go, you can see he has it mounted a notch further back than normal on the receiver so some of the rail is exposed:

Check out the Colt Canada website.... there's pictures of C8s with removable carry handles... also there's a whole section on accessories.

Not sure what you mean by "operational level". The exact details of what DEVGRU and JTF2 do is known only to a privileged few, thus any comparisons to to these 2 units would be pure speculation.

Nope, it's a Colt carry handle in the picture I posted. You can see the rails underneath the midsection of the Diemaco carry handle but not in the JTF2 picture up there, take a look at Vince's carry handle in the C8 thread (not gonna hotlink to his pictures): http://www.airsoftcanada.com/showthr...27#post1169227

Yes i know that they wont be taking time to go prone and take well aimed shot to the 500m line.

But the question was much regarding the use of a aimpoint or eotech.

arent they made for thoses type of situation ?

Or is there a other reason not to use them ? Weight ? space ? etc.

Probably operator preference. I mean these guys are allowed much more variety of options so I'd assume that if they're not carrying an optic, they don't want one.

From what I've heard a JTF2 operator can have as many as 6 Uppers that can be set up mission specific.

Sounds like a great excuse to build multiple uppers for a JTF2 loadout. :p

Shhhhhh!

It's not unreasonable to assume CANSOF works side by side with USSOCOM in areas where there is no official Canadian mil. presence. Good luck trying to prove it. This is one of those things that is best left off public internet forums ya feel me?

RE: JTF2 in Iraq

Indeed, during the first week of the war in 2003, then-U.S. Ambassador to Canada, Paul Cellucci, said that Canada had provided "more support indirectly to this war in Iraq than most of the 46 countries that are fully supporting our efforts there."

Considering that the only real photos we have of JTF2 are PSD's we can only assume that the vast majority of their missions are Black Ops for deniability reasons.

Can anyone ID the gang sign being flashed by the JTF-2 soldier in the background??

Hello ShadowNet,
It's been a long time since you started this thread. Not sure if you're still interested, but here are some of the items that jump out at me in the brochure you linked. Most items may be familiar to you, while others are unique to/within CANSOF.

Bolle T-800 Tactical Goggles
Oakley SI O-Frame Googles
Oakley M-Frame Glasses with Sweep clear lens
Petzl TACTIKKA-series headlamps
Traser tritium watch
Peltor ComTac I and Comtac II Headsets
Peltor Tactical 6 Headset
SOG SEAL Pup knives
Arc'teryx X-350a Climbing Harness
Arc'teryx Military Kneecaps
Cadex Defence Model 643-93C NVG Helmet Mounts
Ops Inc. 15th Model 5.56 CQB MBS Suppressors
INVISIO M3-series Tactical Headset Systems
...and yes, a lot of Paraclete gear, mostly MSA-Paraclete HPC/SOHPC.


Hope this helps.

This info is gold, man!

What kind of under body armor could be khoser? I've got a paraclete HPC on SG and a Paraclete mesh concealment vest carrier on SG too, so, it could be a valid combo?

What pistol do they use? I know it's a sig, but what model?

We need more info!! LOL!
