What's the name of this plate carrier? I've been wondering for a while but never got around to asking.

Blackhawk Osprey System.

It's basically the boys across pond's version of the interceptor.

Here's a pic of prince harry in one (soooo staged...why would he be walking down an Iraqi street alone?)

If you're wondering, the Mark 7 helmets perform (lighter, more protection) better than our LWH's...and despite appearance, they sit lower on the head and protect more surface area.

Brit's don't care about looks Very Happy

His holsters not tightened correctly, no mag pouches.

The Mk7 is nice but it's hard to run comm's with(lid covers the ear to closely). So they have to either run something like a swimmer or Bowman, the Pealtor's wont fit.

here's my guess on why he was alone! (everyone was thinking it)

they had the whole place locked down, sniper protection, lynx flying over with whatever jets they have and then bullet proof glass!

you weren't thinking that?
oh Very Happy
