"this stuff weighs more an I do"
-Bill Guarnere, 1944

sorry, no brass knuckles, but its got pretty much everything else a line soldier might need. In this pic I've tried to show all of the gear that a black age imperial soldier would be issued to use in a combat zone. Ive tried to divide the gear into catagories to make it easier to identify but if you can't figure something out just use your imagination. If I forgotten anything feel free to tell me, I'm trying to be as acurate as possible here.

The ways the gear list is set up is by catagory/quantity/name.


e = essential
ev = essential variable
o = optional
ov = optional variable

essential gear is gear that must be issued to soldiers, it is usually critical to the soldier's effectiveness/survival

optional gear is gear that can or cannot be issued to soldiers at the discretion of the division quartermaster. Usually either a convenience item or an item that is only useful in certain circumstances

variable gear is gear that might be different depending on the division. An example would be hats, one division might use berets while another will use knit caps.

I just remember the pictures of Paratroopers getting ready to jump on D-day...and the quote you posted comes to mind.

I like that you took the time to sketch out the gear and do a thorough Listing of what the troopers carry. That's the kind of detail I wish I could manage.

By the way The FOB looks a lot like the FG-42..Which is not a bad thing really interesting weapon that I happen to like a lot :D

Does he have a guide book for his equipment?

I hope in whatever year this sci fi universe takes place in that they have metal cybernetic skeletal structures, because if I were to carry all this it would make my bones collapse!

This is rather thorough, but all of it seems useful. It's not like you loaded your grunts down with crap they'll never use. But I must ask, why is there a power core extractor? Does the gun fire physical projectiles or energy blasts?
