Unified Duty Gear by Hoborginc Unified Duty Gear by Hoborginc
Demonstration of a body armor concept and some regional variations and colors.

The plates are a flexible polymer composite, attached onto specific attachment points. They are easily replaceable, and replaced frequently. There are two styles of plates, Gen 1, as seen on the French soldier, and the simplified Gen 2, as seen on the German and the contractor on the right. The Egyptian only wears the center vest, which has internal pockets to accommodate traditional rifle plates. The thigh plate can also accommodate a pistol holster and straps to secure the added weight.

The tension mag pouches are mounted on webbing, with the horizontal arrangement simply shown as an alternate set-up. The Egyptian has them attached vertically to support the added weight of quad-stack mags. Camouflaged sections are backed by kevlar for shrapnel protection. The torso is made of lighter, moisture-wicking material.

Exemplary work, sir :) Every bit of your design carries weight and heft to it, as if the duty gear they're wearing could be something real and tangible. It's all very vivid and well-crafted :)

I don't see any difference between gens 1 and 2 besides the leg plates.

And what about the Rifle of the Egyptian Soldier? Is it a Railed AK?

The future rifle of the French Army will not be a bullpup weapon. :(
We will probably adopt the G36 or may be a french variant of the HK416 designed by a new weaponry French company.

Actually, The General of the ground forces talk to adopt the G36... Damage, the bullpup was really interesting. :(

I usually prefer the Design of Conventional Rifles/Carbines, since the Magazine acts both as a Foregrip and as a Weight to balance Recoil, and also for Medium-Long Range Combat, but in some cases - like the Herstal F2000 and P90, the IWI TAR-21 and X95, the Steyr AUG A3, the MSBS-556 B03, the Magpul PDR-C, the Thales F90 and others -, the Bullpup Design is simply perfect, ideal for Short-Medium Range Combat!

Damned, i didn't know the F90. It is beautiful!!!
Several rifle like the Steyr aug or the Famas are also good to long range combat. With our new optics, we can hit a target to 800 meters...

Yes, it is: many Bullpup Rifles are effective at Long Range too!
But:
since Conventional Rifles have their Magazine Well in front of the Trigger Group - rather than behind it, as for Bullpups, and this meaning that the Chamber is "closer" to the Target -, while Bullpups retaining the same Barrel Length, I would choose a Conventional Rifle for Medium-Long Range Combat;
thus I have a Bullpup Carbine for Short-Medium Range Combat - considering that it is more suited for that Range -...
I don't know you, but that's the way I prefer!
