Let’s speak about that modified LBT 1195:
There were various kits used in the film. In some scenes we can clearly see a LBT 1195 harness, while others show a heavily modified BlackHawk harness like in the picture (original movie prop). The front pouches has been removed, making prone position way more comfortable.
The harness have many SAW pouches, one buttpack and one pistol mag pouch on the front strap. The options are BlackHawk ISSAK or LRAK, both needing various modifications. FLYYE and PANTAC make replicas of LBT 1195J rifleman harness.
This laodout (as almost all Tears of the Sun kit lists) has great load capabilities. 2 canteen pouch (one used for the radio), buttpack, back pack, three SAW pouches (I never saw a gunner carry more than one box mag, so they all can be used as utility pouches). .. But loading them all will make this harness really heavy. Not forgetting the LAW, useless for games.
To all of that weight we have to add a M249. It’s made by many manufacturers such as A&K, and not as expensive as Mk43 (other SAW from Tears of the Sun). Secondary weapon is the Mk23, made by Tokyo Marui (no Blowback) and KWA/KSC. Considering this is a gunner loadout I’ll choose the KWA version, more realistic.
