Tacticool checklist

Compiled just for fun; to be updated.

Checklist below describes not an issued gear for a certain MOS, but “common/generic warfighting” equipment, to say, mercenary/contractor from “first world” country, armed with carbine and handgun, for the summer or transition season, for a task full day (or more) length.
List is intentionally redundant and allows duplications – final choice is up to end user.
List contains as much fancy and tacticool stuff as possible.
