    3 Day Assault Pack

    What are some good items yall would include in a 3 Day Assault pack? Im not talking about an E&E or BOB, but an Assault Pack. What items would you put in your pack to go on a 2 or 3 day partol or mission to assault a position. Terrain would be pine forests and low lying scrub.

    I think the pack should be light, as, its going to be lugged around on foot for three days.

    For food ive essentially got three days worth of:

    Oatmeal, Beef jerky, cliff bars, protein powder, peanut butter and trail mix (make my own)

    Ive also included in my pack, a med kit, gun cleaning, bug spray, a knife, some 550 cord, a brown tarp, batteries for my optic and light, and essential hygene stuff, including toilet paper. I also packed some extra plastic bags, just in case theyre needed.

    Is there anything im leaving out? right now the pack is up to around 23lbs.

    Cheers

    doc, no trap. im just curious to be honest, I just joined the military recently and have an Eagle A III assault pack and thought it would be good practice and exercise to get a list of possible things i may need and throw an Assault pack together and go on a hike.

    There is no mission here except a couple days of fun in the woods with some buddies.

    I cant really think of any reason to be assaulting anything here in the CONUS short of a massive natural disaster which spawns a social breakdown, communist invasion, or civil instability... and the chance of any one of those three happening is about the same chance i have at being able to successfully impregnate two lesbian pandas in a kinky three sum to create some sort of pandaman.

    I googled and couldnt really find anything. I was wondering mostly because, just from the things ive thrown into a pack, i can see where these things could start to get a little on the heavy side, and was mainly looking to see what the differences would be in what one would throw into a bug out bag (oh shit contingency bag), and an assault pack. What does a two or three day assault pack typically weigh on average?

    Cheers bros.

    Maybe throw a plate or two in to simulate the weight of extra ammo.

    Assault Pack for Mission(s)

    for "Trainning" toss in a few bricks/ ammo can full of sand, ect. ect.

    AD Light had to carry Law/ AT-4.. full of sand/ lead and ammo can(s) of the same for trainning.. skipped carring much otherwise. water, ammo, "explosives", socks, a tee shirt, TP, clean kit,shave kit, poncho w/ liner "pack light feeze at night" a bunch of other small stuff that add up realy quick. Moving fast isn't always what the Dismounted or Light Inf. performs there quick and noisy or stealth and slower.

    Not knowing what you do for a living, are we talking "raiding an incampment of enemy's from say, 400 yrds away" or are we talking about a military operation?

    (10 cool points for whoever gets the cross-forum reference. )
