Good Sunday Morning!
MILPOD Ping List On/Off-> Let me know!
Is that an antenna array?
Have to ask a Marine, but it sure looks like it.
“Have to ask a Marine, but it sure looks like it.”
It sure isn’t a SINCGARS.
I would seek better cover to “rest”.
I wondered about that too. It isn’t a normal addition to the Manpack radio. It must be a local unit mod to improve radio coverage or clarity or some such.
“It must be a local unit mod to improve radio coverage or clarity or some such.”
I can hardly believe that. I was engineering manager for Talla-Com on that project. We built 45% of the SINCGARS radios. There is nothing a local mod can do to improve performance. Believe me it is as optimum as it can possibly be. The body of the radio is like a collection of cylinders and the SINCGARS is a rectangular box. This is something completely different. I suspect it’s a GPS with a few extra features.
That’s what I was thinking a sniper on the building would have him in plain site or course they could have cleared it.
That guy is a “bullet magnet” with that set up! Sheesh,that pic should be an example in a class for what not to do.
Same here. I'd be on my belly.
I didnt go anywhere without being firmly encased in chobham armor.
This poor guy might as well be naked out there.
Amazing array and not such a big radio, dang those guys carrying radios have near as big balls as the “corpseman.’( quote Obama who is really BEHIND our soldiers)
God Bless our soldiers, God BLESS America and Damn these socialists/talibunnies etc ad nauseam!
Might be for a portable IED jammer.
