USAF TACP in ACU

Hot Toys may have done many things right but they got this figure's uniform WRONG :( The ACU is all smudged and blotty and looks terrible next to BBi's "Lucas". As usual , all Hot Toys' figures come fully loaded and ready for war.


Love the PVS-21 Night Vision Goggles (the problem with collecting modern military figures is that they are always evolving - what is modern now may become outdated a year later coz equipment is constantly changing and improving; historical figures, on the other hand, remain accurate)

The PRC-113 Military Satcom

Comparisons of various ACUs issued.

thats because the air force doesn't use ACUs. They use ABUS (Airmen Battle Uniform) and it looks "smudgy" compared to the ACU. Its not a digital camo, its a zebra style camo.

Actually, i'm a TACP and yes we do wear ACU's while deployed. We're known as JTAC's. "Bombs on Target!"

I was speaking to some TACP's about a week ago. They told me that they are wearing the multicam now.
