USMC Scout Sniper - Equipment

Hi!

Was wondering if anyone knows witch load bearing equipment scout snipers of USMC uses.
Does they also use MTV, or are they using ILBE etc?

Any tips and hints would be marvelous! :-)

USMC troops uses MTV, starting 2010 select few were issue with MCSC a hybird between MTV and SPC

I would think that most scout snipers now are running MCSC over plate carrier for sake of cutting some weight (4lbs or so)

In today's battles, the typical sniper in ghillie suit is rarely seen. Only in extended observations posts and even then, they don't wear stuff that differ much from regular grunts.

For airsoft, if you don't go the ghillie suit way and want to be legit, use gear that will let you shoot prone. So the front plate carrier should be as slim as possible with no pouches giving you a high profile.

If you go ghillied, a load bearing vest or chest rig that split in half at the front will be very usefull. LBT make nice one.

A lot of new stuff I hadn't seen there, thanks Skeletor!

Also, look up "Surviving the Cut - USMC Scout Sniper" on YouTube. Lots of info both on the gear and on their role.

MFR, MARSOC and FAST use the TC2000 and I've seen rare photos of TC2001s and TC2002s being used.
