This set is part of my on-going quest for as much equipment for my Operation Iraqi Freedom AFV’s and dioramas.

I think that it has been around for a while (pre-OIF) but still has useful items
It contains:
3x LAV exterior storage bags
1x camouflage net storage bag
2x tent bags
4x Alice Packs, 1x with PRC 75, 1x camouflage covered pack, 1x AT-4 on pack and 1x with LAW rockets
Compared to the other AEF sets that I am also reviewing this looks to be older, with less in it for the money.
The casting is overall pretty good, with nice detail and just a bit of extra resin “flash”. The pack with the PRC radio on it may limit it a bit for current (SINGARS) standards, but for those where this is not an issue it will be most useful.
All in all a bit expensive for what is in it, but it will be a good add on for my vehicles, recommended.

 

Disclaimer
A quick note about AEF:
I have heard many horror stories about this company, but to their credit (actually “his” credit, I hear Tony is a one-man operation) they did not take any new orders for the entire month of May to catch up on their back-log.
I actually did not get this from them, but from another fellow modeler, so I cannot comment on the timeliness of their current shipping practices.
