|There are brief descriptions of the new US Army uniform in the later chapters, all we get told is that they now wear a dark blue coverall with a hood and face covering. We're also get brief descriptions of the Standard Infantry Entrenchment Tool, or "Lobo", and the Standard Infantry Rifle, or "SIR."|
So, I had to make up my own visual interpretation of how the uniform would look in real life. I wasn't able to fabricate a rifle from the description given in the novel (I don't think anyone could!) so went with a M14 SOCOM instead, which I feel matched up with the requirements mentioned. I also made my own Lobo from a simple metal pole and a head cut out from a road sign and beaten into shape. I also created the unit badge myself and simply printed it onto iron-on paper to transfer to cloth.
