Very well done artwork, look into slings for the M-4. most teams are using three point or single points slings. Much respect for the art work.

This will really help with drawing Swat-ish kind of special forces units. Thanks for making this! It's going to be great help :boogie:

Very nice though the action pose looks very awkward because he is holding the M4 as he was left handed, when both the M4 and himself obviously is right handed.

good, but about a tactical appereance it needs more armor, a face-covering helmet, and some gadgets in armor(like electrodes on hands that permises to stryke electric punches).

Not sure of any teams that wear face covering helmets? Use balaclavas at times in addition to our kevlar but that's about as face covering as it gets.
The only additional armor I've seen is on the shoulders but that gets really cumbersome. This is a pretty accurate drawing, good job. :)

We carry the radio there because it keeps it out of harms way (as best can be) and extra magazines are kept up front. The actual mic is wired to the front and that's all we need at the time (not the whole unit). Ammo is kept up front in pouches for obvious reasons. Only have so much room, ya know? ;)

Wouldn't the upper arm be better for the radio? I assume dials and buttons need to be pressed the occassional time to turn it on/off etc. As for the ammo...having it where bullets would most likely hit (the body) is also a bad idea (to me at least). From what I can see the ammo could be just as easily placed on the straps for the thigh holsters. They'd be easily accessible and less of a target. The radio could then be placed high up on the shoulder (as many real swat and police units have it.) Or just have it built into the helmet. I guess in battle everything is in a bad place no matter what...including the actual person.

There's no hard/fast rule where stuff goes. I'm on a team and we all carry things a bit differently. I carry my radio in front of me in a pouch in the tac vest behind extra mags. Others carry it on their back (I can't, I've got a large tool pack with me) and wire it around to the front. This is pretty common.
Arms are a horrible idea because you're bulky enough going through doors/narrow passages quickly, it would be easy to snag it somewhere.

That's true. In an ideal world we'd be carrying our gear like Predator. One all-in-one device on our back and the control on our arm. And stealth gea...that would be sweet too.

Great work! looks pretty realistic, thought the radio was weird than my dad told me they have them on their backs to prevent them getting damaged (he was in SWAT) My only critisicm is the legs, The shins should be longer
than the thighs, by about a third. his thighs are fine its just the shins need lengthining. :)

havent you guys seen any vietnam movies?! the guy only carries the radio for the commander (another guy) to pickup and use.

Well, I think if the SWAT would interact like some vietnam soldiers they wouldn't be SWAT... especiallially if a team member had to carry the radio for the commander. Usually the SWAT members have radio integrated in their helmets and listen/speak via microphones next to they skull/larynx. so it might be possible the radio on his back is just the transmitter/receiver and he actually don't have to speak directly into the device. Then it would be a good position, it isn't in his way and gives space for more important things.

Awesome concept for a swat type character but one thing that bothers me is the radio's position. It seems a strange thing that something as important as a radio they would have to reach back and strain/use a lot of effort to get too. Love the thigh holsters.

the reason they are on the back is because they are connected to headsets that have mics and headphones on them
