Rifle grenades were most definitely used with the R4.

They were carried on the shoulder straps of the jacket and held in place with the velcro straps above the magazine pouches and the two elastics further up.

This grenade is poorly attached though as it would pendulum all over the place... It should be secured further up the shoulder straps.

Good evening.

Is there anyone who by any chance have dimensions of the battle jacket, or at least the correct sizes of the pouches.

Am actually interested in making a very accurate and sturdy reproduction for my own use.

Regards

Thuvan
