About the weapons...
Flipers M4 pack rules as we all know, but it doesn't include any scoped models. All AFSOC operators typically use scoped rifles. Now, that having been said, you may consider arming them with SJB's scoped M4 variants, they are based on Flipers pack if I'm not mistaken.
As for AFSOC personel wearing insignia in the field... forget it. All SOCOM operators "sterilize" themselves before insertion as standard operating procedure. This means no patches or insignia of any kind, except rank. The above Popular Mecahnics pic of the two CCT's in woodland BDU, was a posed shot.
This was a great message I've recieved in the past regarding PJ's for OFP, and how they should look:
"I noticed you posted something regarding these guys in the Ballistic Addons studio thread in the post 1980 part of the forum.
The helmets they wear don't vary much from the pics i've seen (www.specialtactics.com
), depending on what sort of jump they're doing, in a way the 160th SOAR pilot's helmet resembles what a "HALO Jumper" would wear minus the fact that he's also wearing the oxygen mask, also Static Line and the Static line with tree gear helmets generally aren't that different either (no visor on the former, but one on the latter (although it looks like its mesh wire or something), and no oxygen mask).
Of course the Scuba Jumpers gear is already out of the question, as infantry can't swim in OFP, which is a d**n unfortunite occurance in my opinion, as I reckon adding the ability too swim would benefit some of the units out there, particulary US Navy SEAL, and US Naval Special Warfare - Developement Group (not that there are any addons for these guys yet, not too my knowledge anyway).
It seems too me, at least from what i've seen on that Special Tactics website (www.specialtactics.com
), and a few others, that CCT and PJ's don't only just wear helmets, they also seem too wear caps or boonies (theres a pic of a bunch of Special Tactic Squadron guys wearing Woodland camo gear and boonies on page 2 of the photo gallery of that website I gave you the link for.)
Nevertheless, I doubt a addon maker would want too make different variations of the CCT/PJ guys, with Helmets/Caps/Boonies... honestly I'd prefer Boonies though, particulary in 3 Colour Desert Camo.
I had a pic of some CCT Operator wearing a balaclava/beanie and riding a mule/donkey in Afghanistan, this was prior too this happening http://www4.aixgaming.com/opend/album14/sf25
... blacking out the eyes for "security purposes", the DoD wouldn't have been too pleased with the site in its original form, it had pics of Delta Operaters with faces fully visible, not too mention DevGru, they've done nothing too the 75th Ranger and 82nd Airbornes faces though, this guy is a exception too the rule, http://www4.aixgaming.com/opend/album14/sf37
CCT, looks like he's wearing Oakley sunglasses, notice the Boonie.
I noticed this guy aswell, http://www4.aixgaming.com/opend/album14/sf23
, wearing what I believe is called the PASGT Kevlar Helmet, could be wrong, I probably need too brush up on military terminology/gear.
A few more pics of interest, nice camo pattern on this guys M4 http://www4.aixgaming.com/opend/album14/sf1
(he's CCT aswell... there isn't many pics of PJ's on this site, http://www4.aixgaming.com/opend/albums.php
I think this guy might be CCT too, http://www4.aixgaming.com/opend/album14/sf44
Still pretty good pics, the old site, used too have descriptions for the pics, not this time round though, so it's hard too say what unit a particular Operative belongs too.
Sorry about the long message by the way, still it's good too see someone else wanting too see some USAF Spec Ops units in OFP, I already have a mod that has PJ's for the game Ghost Recon (which I play a fair bit aswell.)"
As yo can see I've been waiting and wanting this for a long time.
