A couple of French FSBE II collectors, Force Recon reenactors are getting together for a huge scale photoshoot in September 2010. Grahf is the main organizer and Saint Bourrin will come as an advisor. This event will take place somewhere near Paris. Everyone is welcome according to the organizer. Other SEAL and DEA FAST reenactors will be present for the photoshoot as well. But the main focus will be on the FR units.

There will be 2 semi professional photographers present on the field to ensure that the pics are of high quality. Admission to the photoshoot is subjected to some strict criteria regarding kitlist.

FAQ :

Can everyone participate?

Yes, SEALs and some DEA FAST reenactors will be present as well, but only for some particular pictures. If you have a very detailed loadout, you could take advantage of a semi professional fotographer and his gear. Be advised that the main focus will be on the Force Recon pictures.

Ok I’m interested, I am gonna join as an FR operator, where do I sign up?

If you think your loadout corresponds to the criteria, post your pic in this thread and we will tell you whether it is good to go or not. If it is, I will add you

When will this take place?

Second or third Saturday of September.

Where will it happen?

Around Paris, the exact location has not been confirmed yet, but we are working on it.

How long will it take?

The whole day. There might also be a night skirmish after the photo session, but it is not sure yet. Whether the skirmish will take place or not, depends on conditions which are beyond my control.

What do we have to prepare?

There’s only one real requirement, namely that you shave. No beard or moustache. Those will totally ruin the realism of the photo session. Also bring a lot of water, being September, it will probably still be hot and running around all day with all that gear on…

Will there be a sign up fee?

Not at the moment, but most likely there will be a very minimal fee of around 5 to 10 euro per person.

Why, what are you planning?

We might be planning to use cinematic explosives to breach doors. This will take quite some additional work, to see if it can be done. Same with flash bangs, etc. …

How many persons will be present?

At least 5, 10-11 maximum. And I’m only talking about FR. They will be accompanied by SOTG instructors.

I have some extra gear, what do I bring?

Bring everything! Everything, be it closely or distantly related to FR, could always be useful. Same for replica gun accessories.

Do you want me to bring my gear all set up?

No, remove the pouches from your CIRAS and MBSS. Everything will be reconfigured and setup on site. We’ll also swap around pouches, but everything will be accounted for, so that there won’t be any losses or scams. We will setup your CIRAS, your first line, your Safariland etc, so we will be a coherent group. A lot of people think they have setup their gear well, but this is not always the case.

Cool, so I will get to use the gear I just bought!

Be advised, we will ask you to dirty up your gear a bit on site, just to give it a realistic look. We can’t have any squeeky clean flight suits that just came out of the washing machine or immaculate pouches.

This should be the final update of my FSBE II kit list. I have not been searching for anymore FSBE II items to buy. It’s very likely that I will stop collecting this, unless I find something really special or cheap to buy.

Got some Eagle Industries shoulder pads in for the MBSS PC. I’m not even sure if these things are in the FSBE II kit. Probably not to be honest.
