Brazilian COT (Comando de Operações Táticas) Assaulter in Rio, 2018 (Multicam Black Ver.)

Hey all, I’m back with yet another 'bash I’ve been toying with for a long time.

The Comando de Operações Táticas (Portuguese for Command Of Tactical Operations), AKA COT, was created after Brazilian parliament recommendations, in an attempt to have a specialized counter-terrorism force. It was placed in service in 1987. (Wiki) COT is widely regarded as one of the most capable SOF/law enforcement teams in South America and functions similarly to America’s FBI HRT. In any given year, COT executes “110 operations … throughout Brazil”, largely against narcos and other elements of organized crime. (Wiki)

Unlike most Brazilian LEOs, COT operators wear almost exclusively high-end foreign-produced kit. Their weapons are from H&K, footwear is from Lowa and uniforms/plate carriers are from Crye Precision. In an effort to reduce “Multicam fatigue” that I have been experiencing, I opted to outfit this figure in Multicam Black. COT wears standard MC, as well as MC Tropic and MC Black (as referenced below and elsewhere online).

The MC kit over the black MC looks really sharp.

Having nothing at all to do with the rest, did you look close at the M16/M203 on the shoulder patch? Serious mis-alignment of the image.

Thanks man! Agreed, they should’ve just thrown a 20rd mag on there so it’d fit properly…

Wow…this one really rocks! :+1:
Love that MC Black combo!

Thanks oso! I have to admit I was inspired by the work you’ve done with MC Black lately :+1:
