American Special Forces in Panama, 1989
'Delta Force' Assault Team operator

'Delta Force' members are permitted a certain amount of latitude in the selection of uniforms and equipment. Apparently, many wore CWU-27/P flyer's coveralls during their initial direct action missions, and few wore headgear; others wore standard BDUs or black SWAT type suits. The only insignia worn was the US flag. A wide variety of privately purchased boots were used, in this case Hi Techs, along with mixes of the Individual Tactical Load Bearing Vest (ITLBV) and ALICE components over a PASGT body armor vest. The ITLBV, a component of the Integrated Individual Fighting System, was to have been issued in 1988, but was delayed due to development problems. The sound-suppressed sub-machine gun is a 9mm H&K MP5A3S, and he is equipped with the new, extremely lightweight A/PVS-7A night vision goggles with special head-mounted imaging assembly.

Special Forces trooper, A/3/7th SFGA

SF troopers tended to wear BDUs without any insignia other than the US flag. Headgear varied, in this case a tropical hat, more commonly known as the ‘boonie hat’. SF generally uses standard weapons, here an M16A2 and 84mm M136 LAW, as used to engage PDF armored vehicles at the Pacora River Bridge.

Navy SEAL Team 4 member

The SEALs wore common uniforms, but were permitted much leeway in equipment selection. Lightweight BDUs were worn with jungle boots and ALICE gear. While ‘boonie hats’ were common, other forms of headgear sometimes provided a piratical appearance. He wears a dive watch, wrist compass, and laser-safe goggles. Nomex and leather GS/FRP-2 flyer’s gloves complete his outfit. A variety of weapons are employed, including this M16A1 carbine fitted with a Beta C-MAG 100-round twin drum. Other weapons include M16A1 rifles, M203 grenade-launchers, M60 machine guns, MP5A3 sub-machine guns, and LAWs. When operating in close proximity to water they wear various model flotation vests under their jackets.
