Already seen success with Dutch & German Special Forces
MD-TEXTIL is showcasing several new products at this year’s exhibition at stand 12-252, including new canine systems, magazine pouches and lightweight ballistic plate carriers as it expands its offering to suit both Special Forces and law enforcement operators.
The company has already seen success with Dutch and German Special Forces for its tactical rappelling systems with several hundred now sold, according to MD-TEXTIL CEO Marcel Doneth. At this year’s Enforce Tac the company is displaying a new harness system for canines, allowing operators to rappel from buildings or helicopters with their dogs by their side. This system has already achieved sales with special forces units, according to Mr Doneth.
MD-TEXTIL is also exhibiting new pouches for both pistol and assault rifle magazines. The assault rifle magazines can be fitted with a side-mounted safety cord for fast access during reloading, or with a velcro-fitted flap for better magazine protection. The pistol magazine pouch features an internal plastic clip that better secures the magazine when it is placed inside.
A new addition for this year’s show is a lightweight ballistic plate carrier. MD-TEXTIL has worked with ballistic plate manufacturer BSST to offer a vest that weighs just 2,600g (with 2x 800g plates on the front and back). This carrier can be integrated with magazine pouches using MOLLE attachment points and can also be used alongside the company’s rappelling gear for operators as part of a modular harness system.
The company is displaying its vest and pouches in several camouflage patterns and colours, including the next-generation CONCAMO, or confusion camouflage. The developers of the CONCAMO claim that it can, “confuse the subconscious,” with a special patented pattern arrangement. It is also claimed to have special infrared reduction capabilities when viewed through thermal imagers.
