    Hey I was wondering if there is anybody out there with a Ranger Loadout preferably the 101st Airborne, I am probably going to make a 101st Airborne Loadout and any help would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    Read the sticky threads, or do a search. The information is out there, you just need to find it.

    What period? What is your research on the loadout? What is your budget?

    If you must ask, you are not ready to do it.

    And do you have the right type of a vest? Because an impression is not just something put up together and calling it a ranger.

    It'd be helpful for us to know everything you already have and everything you know you need to have so we don't sit here rehashing stuff you already know (or so we can correct the stuff you might have wrong). Also, as far as I'm aware, the 101st isn't a division of the Rangers.

    The 101st is indeed a ranger detachment and as of right now Army forces deploying in Afghanistan wear multi-cam so find a set of multi-cams, and a LBV, and if you are willing to take the risk of getting called out on it a screaming eagle patch

    1 set ACUs
    Tactical Assault System MOLLE vest TAN
    I have ordered a triple mag pouch for my M-4
    Tan operators hat
    Going to order some armored gloves
    And I am probably going to get some black or tan knee pads and some elbow pads. Yeah I dont have much but I have only been playing airsoft for about 5 months. I would appreciate advice. Thanks
    And yes I was wrong on the 101st being Rangers. My bad thanks for clarifying that :)

    Thanks you posted that while I was writing my post. I have a Screaming Eagle patch and I thought they were Rangers but was not sure at all really.

    I misremembered the screaming eagle is 101st, but the 101st is air-assault, but they are basically the same thing(just don't try to say that to their face they are very touchy about that)

    They were the unit that jumped behind German lines on D-Day so yes, yes they are

    What do you mean by this? They are not spec ops but airborne infantry. Are they capable? I guess? Are they special ops? No.

    He asked if they are spec ops capable which due to the nature of their jobs they are.

    Can you link to the vest you have? It doesn't sound like anything you have actually fits the bill. You have a lot of hours of research ahead of you on this project, and asking broad questions here isn't the way to get started.

    It might be more constructive if everybody who doesn't know what terms like "special operations capable" mean just didn't try to answer those questions.

    I bought it off of Ebay and I can't find it on line anywhere. Yeah true so I will just do an ACU loadout. I didnt realize I needed a specific vest.
