Two RHIBS running and gunning and conducting training in a formation on a calm and warm day 2 miles off the east coast.

Nothing like a selfie to show how tactical you can be! This picture was taken right before the RHIB behind me made its approach to “tighten up” the formation. Doing this at 45 knots on the water takes trust and precision in both RHIB’s – without trust and precision things can get sketchy very fast. This was also the first time I was able to wear the First Spear AAC Frog (AKA ‘The Frog’) plate carrier system. Maritime operations and First Spear just seem to go hand in hand and with the versatility and comfort of “The Frog” at high speeds on the water or on land. I don’t think there is another plate carrier system in the game quite like it.
