Yeah baby! So excited! I may have to buy a set. But I have a question. would those rangers be good mixed in with the US infantry? because I have a box of US infantry, no less no more and I have been using marine specialists for flamethrowers, radio operators, streachter bearers and the like for my infantry and am in need for better specialists. I know that rangers had a tactical vest to prevent shrapnal,But would have there have been any other uniform difference.
The assault vest didn't offer any ballistic protection at all but was intended as a replacement for the webbing system. Strangely, despite often being called "the Ranger vest" not many got them. They were largely despised and "lost" by GI's in the weeks following D-Day.
