FSBE AAV-QR  Amphibious Assault Vest 
The Full Spectrum Battle Equipment (FSBE) is a Marine Corps System Command (MARCORSYSCOM) solution for the replacement of the Close Quarters Battle Equipment (CQBE). It is designed for Maritime Special Purpose Force (MSPF) Amphibious Raids.

➤   FSBE
➤   A1


A new interim ensemble was rushed into production in 2000 as the Full Spectrum Battle Equipment (FSBE). The new kit gave each Force Recon Marine a flotation device and portable breathing air. It also provided a new set of body armor and load-carriage equipment to replace both the AVS and the patrolling gear.

The centerpiece was the Amphibious Assault Vest , the AAV was a nearly neutrally-buoyant vestderived from the SPEAR BALCS fielded by US Special Operations Command, using comparable soft armor and SAPI plates .


A refinement was a cable-release system permitting the vest to be jettisoned in an emergency by pulling a handle at lower front to simultaneously decouple four attachment points at the shoulders and hips. The initial AAV had unsuitable Velcro closures at these points , and the subsequent cablerelease version became standard



The core of the FSBE is the Amphibious Assault Vest (AAV) designed to work in conjunction with the Small Arms Protective Insert (SAPI) the AAV will accept load bearing devices over the top of it or mission related pockets attached directly to it and is compatible with all MOLLE equipment.

A quick release cut-away allows the Marine wearing the vest ( AAV II / AAV - QR )  to drop the system directly off his body with one pull, operable by either the left of right hand.
