SEAL Team - Behind the kit - 2nd Line Gear - Season 4




Resilience and adaptability are two key components integral to SEAL Team and ultimately the operators within Bravo. Facing multiple threats across a variety of environments the team must have kit and equipment that best supports them. SEAL Team Season 4 does not let up on the gas and features fast paced missions across the globe from overt to covert roles using a range of real steel manufacturers kit and equipment. As has been seen in previous Seasons, Bravo and the individual operators continue to evolve and this blog brings direct to your screens those changes.


Having completed a breakdown of 2nd Line Gear for Season 1, Season 2 and Season 3, there was nowhere to hide for Season 4 and with a new Season comes a whole new collection of kit and equipment to search for. As with the previous blogs, this one took a lot of time and effort trawling the internet for popular, bespoke and unique items of kit that Bravo use. As previously mentioned, rather than adding every single episode and breaking it down, my preference was to provide you the reader with a section per operator per set of 2nd Line Gear. For example if 2B9 Ray PERRY wears a Crye AVS and throughout the seasons changes his pouches configuration, I have noted all of them under one section for ease.


Due to the Covid pandemic, the Season 3 filming schedule was abruptly cut short and the Season 3 final episodes were slowly edited and reworked over time. Season 4 begins directly after Season 3 concludes and the team are still using their original loadouts. As Season 4 progresses, new kit lands and the whole identifying process begins again. This is though yet another blog that doesn't exist anywhere else! The blog gives you the details and links to recreate a 2nd Line Gear setup based upon one or a mix of Bravos' operators. As with all of my other blogs, an inordinate amount of HD images, low res images, trailers, videos and episodes were pored over, watched and re-watched to bring you this full write up. I received a lot of feedback from readers regarding when Season 4 was going to be researched, so here it is, enjoy...


 

Equipment manufacturers


Bravo have throughout the 4 Seasons used a wide range of real steel manufacturers across all of their kit. The 4th Season is no different with several new manufacturers appearing as part or as a whole in Bravo's kit. In relation to 2nd Line Gear plate carriers, rigs, pouches and ancillaries, the following are the main manufacturers of note;



 


Jason HAYES (1B9)


HAYES returns to Season 4 and brings with him depth of character, and showing the start effects of war on an operator who's been taking targets down and travelling the world without rest. As Bravo's lead he fights from the front and continues to mix and match his 2nd Line Gear throughout the season to suit where he goes and what he has to do.



Loadout 1 - Standard Operating Environment


HAYES in episode 1 of Season 4 brings over from Season 3 his Velocity Systems Scarab LT in Desert Digital. This is mainly due to the fact that COVID meant episode 1 Season 4 was meant to be the final episode of Season 3 and was part filmed before production was shut down. Hence why we only see this operational loadout for one episode. The Desert Digital Scarab which was previously released in a small batch and is due to be released again (in a small quantity) is another plate carrier variant affording HAYES the ability to upscale or downscale depending on mission requirements.

Loadout 2 - Low Profile


HAYES returns to the standard low profile gear as worn through all seasons, manufactured in whole by Spiritus Systems. Able to carry enough magazines and mission essential gear into the field the Mk4 is the go to for Bravo team.

Loadout 3 - Standard Operating Environment


HAYES replaces the LT Scarab with the Eagle Industries NSW (Naval Special Warfare) Plate Carrier. This plate carrier is not publicly available and may have been obtained as a prototype or pre-release (images are available on the Eagle Industries Instagram). The noticeable features resemble a Crye Precision JPC 2.0 and from the rear appear like an LBT 6094 G3 rear panel has simply been fixed onto a JPC rear panel, though there are subtle differences elsewhere, notably on the cummerbund where the mesh material instead of circular holes features hexagonal holes instead. With multiple pouches for ammunition and equipment carriage, the scalability of the plate carrier ensures that he can match the mission requirements easily.

Loadout 4 - Low Profile v2


When deployed to a low profile environment, HAYES dons the Crye Precision JPC 2.0 with minimal pouches for use in and around vehicles. As mentioned throughout the episode, the lack of ammunition and equipment such as suitable 1st and 2nd Line Gear show Bravo were at risk of being overrun through not being prepared.

Ray PERRY (2B9)


PERRY favours tried and tested gear such as his Crye Precision AVS, however towards the end of the Season he starts to trial new kit and equipment based upon his role and need for each operation.



Loadout 1 - Standard Operating Environment


PERRY retains the featured Crye Precision AVS throughout the season and adapts it where necessary. The gear is proven, is adaptable and suits whichever role PERRY is required to step into, whether that be as a Marksman or 2ic.

Loadout 4 - Low Profile v2 (Colombia)


Deployed to Colombia, PERRY adopts the Spiritus Systems Mk4 in Multicam Tropic. Due to the episode mainly being set in a dark environment there were very few opportunities of clear images of the kit being utilised, but based upon previous loadouts, the below is highly likely to be correct.

Maintaining numerous low profile loadouts, PERRY utilises the Crye precision JPC in its simplest form, void of external pouches of other equipment that would otherwise get in the way.

Sonny QUINN (3B9)


QUINN throughout Season 4 swaps between a multitude of firearms and with it his loadouts and 2nd Line Gear also change to suit his requirements.



Loadout 1 - Standard Operating Environment


QUINN brings with him into Season 4 his newly favoured Spiritus Systems LV-119 likely due it being lightweight, unrestrictive and still having enough real estate to attach the mission relevant pouches to. As a plate carrier it's versatile, slick and low profile.

The low profile loadout appears again when QUINN dons the S&S Precision CRM with minimal pouches to ensure it's lightweight and carries only the mission critical equipment necessary for their deployment. In addition to the CRM, it also includes front and rear ballistic plates (likely S&S Precision sourced).

Trent SAWYER (4B9)


SAWYER with real military experience utilises a range of 2nd Line Gear, varying pouch placements and unique pouches / ancillaries that experience has taught him to include. Generally as a left hander, traditional LHS pouches such as the radio pouch can be found on his RHS.



Loadout 1 - Standard Operating Environment


SAWYER through Season 4 continues to wear his S&S Precision PFM with near identical pouches as worn in Season 3. The plate carrier chosen is likely done so through choice and experience and as seen in the pictures below can be scaled up or down based upon the mission requirements.

Loadout 2 - Low Profile


Tyler GREY aka SAWYER is not in episode 8 as he was injured off set and a double was set in his place. Camera shots stick with the back of the stand ins head and him passing by in the background. As with keeping with the rest of Bravo during this episode, 'SAWYER' utilises the Spiritus Systems Mk4, another proven item of kit.

Brock REYNOLDS (5B9)


REYNOLDS as the K9 handler has a specific role within the team, primarily to act as handler and secondly to act as another operator who remains adaptable throughout the season. A heavy influence for REYNOLDS is Crye Precision kit and equipment (due to his friendship with Caleb Crye - co-founder of Crye Precision).



Loadout 1 - Standard Operating Environment


Justin MELNICK's friendship with Caleb Crye (co-founder of Crye Precision) brings with it perks, such as prototype / pre-release tactical equipment, something that he adds to his character REYNOLDS' gear lines. REYNOLDS continues to use his preferred SPC and mixture of old school and new pouches to suit his role as K9 handler.

Clay SPENSER (6B9)


SPENSER continues through Season 4 to vary his kit and equipment whilst his 2nd Line Gear does change as well, again adapting to his environment and mission requirements.



Loadout 1 - Standard Operating Environment


As mentioned in HAYES' Loadout 1 section, SPENSER also brings with him the Velocity Systems Scarab which is his favoured plate carrier. Throughout the season as a Marksman he keeps the carrier lightweight and free of multiple and unnecessary pouches.
