Hmmm.. yeah? And? I'm not sure what the point is, lol.

If you're looking for the type of plate carrier, there are a few types in USMC service but the one on that picture is an Eagle Industries Scalable Plate Carrier (SPC).

SPC plate carrier.
IIRC Specialist started using them. Now a lot of marines where this. In Bravo Company you can see a lot of them.

Thanks Conker and Yannos. I just wanted to know what was the marine wearing (sorta interested doing a marine loadout), I know that MEU wears SPC but wasn't too sure in the picture because of the groin flap. I'll take a look at the video you linked Yannos.

It is an SPC you can see the cut at the top. it is the only one like it.
You can put a groin flap on anything.

Yeah the "Scalable" in the name comes from the fact that you can adapt it to different "scales" of threats with the optional armor components.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but most if not all deployed units are using the SPC. Though there may be some IMTV's out there.

And here's where you attach the groin protector to the SPC:

None of the one you posted...

The RICAS (a copy of the EI CIRAS) would only be good for a Force Recon / MSOC kit. The other well the design (but would have to be CB not Marpat) is alright for up to a 2006 kit, after that it was all MTV and now SPC

Depends... Do you want an up to date kit or do you want to picture a certain time frame?

2001-2005 IBA either woodland or CB
2005-2008 MTV
2008-Now SPC

THe time frame of each model can overlap a bit, there was a majority of MTVs when the Marines came to Afghanistan but now it's all SPC for frontline units

Silly Vince, the MTV was released in 2007!

For the current time period, it would have to be an SPC. But there are still rotating units using MTV's and IBA's as well.

Grunts use the LWH which is based on the PASGT design.

The MICH2000 is used by EOD, Scout Sniper, Boarding teams, Recon Btn and MARSOC.

MTVs are for rear echelon units. IBA is for stateside training.

As for the MTV, the earliest use was in Ramadi '06 (well technically a Spartan 2 for evaluation purpose but I would have lost most of the crowd on that one ahha)
