The modern squad machine gunner needs to be able to carry a lot of ammunition for their primary marker, along with spare magazines for their sidearm and a modern mag-fed primary arm—like the T68, MKP mag-fed conversion kit –enabled markers, or the dramatic new 468. They need to carry all of those magazines and tubes in a balanced, ergonomic manner that permits a full range of motion and helps them carry heavier loads farther. USMG designed a great load bearing vest to do just that, and we’ve equipped it perfectly for the modern squad machine gunners and heavy gunners.
We started with the USMG Load Bearing Vest, which is covered in mil-spec MOLLE loops to accept a wide range of pouches, holsters, and accessories, placed exactly where on the vest you want and need them. The vest is rapidly donned and doffed courtesy of the tough zipper in front, and the quick-detach buckles on straps that help secure the vest across your chest. The vest accommodates a wide range of body types, and interfaces with battle belts to further enhance its tactical utility.
To build it into the perfect vest for machine gunners, we include two sets of carbine mag pouches, a two-mag pouch for sidearm magazines, and for the back: a four-pod harness for carrying traditional tubes of loose paint—perfect for reloading your RAP4 Box Magazine or old-school hopper.
You’ll need to stay in touch with your team, so we even make it easy to keep your radio handy with the MOLLE-interface small radio holster. And when your mission requires more—or different—gear, the Tactical Modular Machine Gunner Vest is ready to be easily modified with MOLLE-interface pouches and gear to complete the mission!
