Arab commando kit
 
Hi everyone, i've been thinking of doing an arab commando kit. So far I have a mini uzi as my main and a glock as a secondary for weapons, although I could use my M933 but that wouldn't work as well as an uzi or an AK. For gear I already have desert boots and a balaclava, eagle duty belt and holster I could use. This is what I've been thinking of doing for a complete kit.

-Body armour carrier
-Commando chest rig or submachine gun magazine pouch rig
-Beret
-Desert tiger BDU's
-Mini uzi*already have
-Side arm*already have
-More mags for my mini uzi because it hogs gas like no other guns!
-Desert boots*already have
-Shemagh

If anyone could leave suggestions or real pictures of commando's from the middle east, doesn't matter which country that would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Mike

www.militaryphotos.net will have all your answers.
but if you want an actual countries commando look? it's basically the exact same thing as a yank set up (hmm..........I ponder who trained them).
I've never actaully seen a pic of an Arab commando with a shemag on.

Since were on the topic of arab stuff. I'd like to inturupt and ask....Is it possible to wear a turban if your hair is really short? It's to be fitted on a manikin that has fake plastic hair. (The same kind a turban the sikh's wear) I, for some reason I happen to have a jacket that says on the back of it "National Sikh Society" so I'd like to get a turban to go along with it and hang it up in my room.

Turban's have nothing to do with Arabs.

Actually Turban's aren't at all middle eastern. They're on the sub-continet (India/Pakistan[mostly India]).

I'm pretty sure you need hair down to your knee's in order to properly wear a turban...

Turbans are seen in the middle east only because the Sikh religion has a very large population base there. It has nothing to do with culture, it's a religion.

First of all, a turban is like a very large bandana, and it's wrapped around your hair in order to keep it clean. Imagine having your hair long, like down to your knees, and then wrapping a linen cloth around the length of it, then wrapping that cloth up around your head into a bun. That's what a turban actually is, and that's why men wear bigger turbans as they get older (it's against the Sikh religion to cut your hair).

And please don't consider hanging the cloth and the jacket on the wall...it's like someone hanging a priest's robe and a rosary on their wall because they think Catholicism is an indicator of north american culture.

Education is a wonderful destroyer of ignorance, so please look up all the info I've given you if you really want to understand these people and their religion.

Cheers,
Sean.

Theres too many nations and too much variation in between.


Iunno, Yuxi... my country's Folgore parachute division uses nearly the same basic set-up at the american 101st rangers... the biggest difference is that we use the Beretta AR70/90 instead of the M4A1.

btw, dude, do you know anyone who's got Italian-manufactured tactical vests? because i can't find any...

Erik if your still wondering yes you can still tie a turban with out long hair (my uncle is in the Indian air force and he has to be clean cut but he is Sikh so when he comes home he wears a turban) I can show u how to tie a Sikh turban but its doesn’t look like the ones insurgents in Iraq wear. They wear a rounder less tidy turban kind of like the third pic down on this link http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/new...m/turbans.html

Sikh turbans are the best but please dont try to tie one and call it a Sikh turban. Dont be rascist. Also, it doesnt matter how long your hair is. You can be bald and tie a turban.
