Interesting question I was asked, what is my fighting loadout?
My response was “what’s the transport?”
For instance many years ago my main transport was a VERY old 125 cc motor bike (in hand painted OG):-
Loadout on this as I was driving down tracks and across fields?
A gas mask bag with the basics i.e. Slivovitz, water, cold tack (black bread and cheese mainly). My wet weather gear and camo net on the back seat, plus rifle with 100 rounds and a Browning 9mm (4 mags) and radio. Old school like me.
Some guys traveled even lighter i.e. they forewent the food but in all cases the Slivovitz was mandatory.
Then you look at now?
Hows about a Lada Riva 4×4 (old school version i.e. no fuel management still in hand painted OG). You could carry the kitchen sink in that (plumbed in, shower optional) if you liked and still be able to carry a full weapons load (and Slivovitz) whist driving down tracks that a billy-goat wouldn’t walk along.
A lot of time is spent talking about loadouts, bug outs, and pack weights but I still insist, look at the transport first before you decide.
Some will be thinking “take too much and what if the vehicle breaks down?”
Easy, leave the rubbish and walk away with the important things in life. After all you can replace anything except a good rifle and the Sliv’ works on toothache as well.
