WEAPONS AND EQUIPMENT

AS USED BY THE SELOUS SCOUTS

SUMMARY

Within this page my attempt is to give a brief, but comprehensive overview of some of the weapons, equipment (kit), vehicles, uniforms and insignia distinctive to the Selous Scouts.

    The Selous Scouts were renowned for being unorthodox in their operation which also showed in there weapons and equipment. Many Scouts employed "liberated" items to round out there kit. Weapons being at the top of the list. Many of which were Communist Block issue.         

    Some items were standard issue through out the Security Forces, but were in some cases modified to suit the needs of a particular operator, while in other cases items were made or obtained specifically for the Scouts, for example the Selous Scouts made PIG an armored personnel vehicle with purpose of conducting convoy or external operations.

    The following is not all inclusive, but again just an overview. If you have information or scans of items pertaining to this section, feel free to send them to the Webmaster. All items will be credited to the sender.
