If you want a good vest that will set you out you can pick up a "photographers" vest for about £15-20. These look VERY similar to a 5.11 tactical vest, alot of PMC's use these as they are very low profile and don't make you look like a soldier in any way.

Lol u r probably thinking that i am another one of those modern warfare 2 airsoft wannabes but i only wanted to get the skull balaclava for the 'unique' look ,besides have you ever heard of Blackwater Operatives, The jeans and T shirt is a classic PMC/Merc stereotype

Adding a shemag to your loadout might make it look more PMC, although you've got the skull balaclava so you probably won't need it.

I hope I'm allowed to link to a picture on here (there's no other content on the page, don't worry).

 

If you're looking for a mercenary look, I got these two through Google images quite quickly.

IMO I prefer the first one, the wrap would keep your head cool during the summer, yet warm in the winter months...plus it would protect your face, and is probably cheaper than some of the masks out there :)

I too am looking for a great Merc look, the first sniper pic looks amazing. I think a true merc look is a soldier that has kitted himself out with what has been available/needed to him at the time.

 

The black water look I do not like, first it looks TOO much like a uniform. A merc fights for the highest bidder, he does not need a uniform as such.

Well yeah but blackwater arent mercs in the strictest sense, they work for a security company which requires a certain uniformity.

(and dont call them mercs, its bad press :P )

 

What youre thinking of is a lone-operative style merc, something a la Andy McNab's novels (his fiction, not his nonfiction) or that xbox game Mercenaries (was awesome btw, second one was such a letdown).

jus eeber though merc wear what they are comftable in if you go for a tan 5.11 fishing vest type thing with a ak chest rig(chicom) then your making a CIA in irag louadout 2001, but there has also been pics of merc in army camo!! so it doesnt really matter what you wear you can call it a merc loudout.

Those photos are really interesting, and useful detail.

I'm curious about the armaments those guys are using, since the photos seems to suggest standard Armalites and tacticoool gubbins'd AKs and M4s.

 

I like the Scottish Merc :lol:

Its just one guy, (his name is Argyle) and in the photos he can be seen wearing or carrying M4s, Galil, Sig 551, AKs, MP5 and Glocks.

 

Also of note are the pictures of Blackwater, AEGIS and Russian mercs.

 

I use military photos website alot. Some good source material.

Same here, using real deal photos can help when planning a loadout although I base my loadouts mainly on practacality and a bit of looks. When I wanted to go for a Greek commando (I'm half Greek) look I used this website:

Ok, have dug up some pics of me in a PMC/PSD/Merc style loadout.

 

First one is really for CQB, CP or Vehicle Work. (I'm the guy in the middle)

 

the_winning_team.jpg

 

Helikon Commanders Jacket

Shemagh, Jeans and BB Cap

Lowa Elite boots

Oakley Gloves and Blackhawk knee pad

SVS Personal Body Armour (ACM Clone)

MP9 with Eotech 552 and Surefire Scout Light

Colt 1911 in Serpa holster and 2x spare 1911 mags worn on belt

WAS Go-bag with 6x MP9 mags and other essentials

 

This is a dead easy loadout, (minus the weapons and attachments) and can be put together for less than £100 using clone gear, ebay and whatever you've got in your cupboard. I have used it for woodland, but it works best for CQB obviously.

This next pic was taken on a Mil-sim day when I was a Merc guarding African diamond mines :) Although I have a rather snazzy PDW here, it would work better with an AK variant (wood based) or a very basic (Non-RIS) M4, G3, Uzi or Galil. (Could even work with MP5 or a shottie). Anyway think old-school 70s/80s weaponry and you wont go far wrong (My AKSU broke half way through the day and my son was using my AKM hence the PDW).

OD cap and tee-shirt (the more washed out the better)

WAS TMV vest

Lowa Elite boots and Oakley gloves in tan

Claw Gear trousers in Rooivalk (I believe its a pakistani camo pattern but it is used in africa too)

AK74-SU w/ 5x mags

Colt 1911 w/ 3x mags

 

Again another really cheap load-out to assemble. Substitute the vest for a cheapo chest rig and the trousers for any camo trousers, (for f**ks sake dont use multicam or MTP!) and dig out a load of washed out gear from your cupboards and your ready to go.

The last set of pics is my version of a high-end PMC Ops team. This is quite a dear loadout (dont ask how much the rifle costs...) and probably the most bulky. I wear it mainly for woodland (I substitute the black Helikon for either a Tan or OD one depending on the season).

Tan 5.11 Cap (with "Surprise c*** Fags" patch), Oakley Gloves and Lowa boots.

Black Helikon Sharkskin jacket

Shemagh

SOCOM Camo Claw Gear GenII trousers

Pantac RG RAV vest

Custom TM/HurricanE Sig 552 w/ 10x mags and 4x ACOG sight

TM Sig P226R w/ 5x mags

Devgru SEALS headset and Motorola radio

 

In truth this pretty much my standard mil-sim set up. I swap the vests and weapons around but I really like the SOCOM trousers. Most of the other BW guys also have a set, and like multicam they work in most enviroments. I tendnot to wear camo tops but in summer would swap in either a black/od polo shirt.

 

Hope this has given you some ideas or help. If you want any advice or have any questions just fire away ;)
