Lightbulb A.L.I.C.E Backpack?

Well, MOW Vietnam needs the us soldiers to have ALICE backpacks too.
They were my fav equipment the us had and i would really love to see them. I thought about using milkshape or 3d studio max but i think it would be to hard to add a back pack texture to the normal us soldier and also, i cant do texture mod s as they keep showing me an error when i try to get em to the winrar or sevenzip. The seals, the air cav, the us army, the us marine corps (some of them and at 1969 nearly everyone had one with a entrecnhing tool), mike force (recon), 101st screaming eagles, arvn, green berets, special forces, 25th infantry etc..
can someone give me a tutorial how to do this or can some one please please PLEASE add this to the us troops?
Also, i would like to see 2 new US units, these being a shotgunner and a RTO.. I mean, you included a RTO at the front cover, and you shown 3 soldiers with ALICE backpacks on the older cover.

Thanks.

@ E'dollo
RTO means Radio Telephone Operator, the guys who call in airstrikes air support or heli extractions. They carry the AN/PRC-77 Portable Radio that the SF guy in front of the cover has. Taken from wikipedia: "The AN/PRC 77 entered service in 1968 during the Vietnam War as an upgrade to the earlier AN/PRC 25."

And the ALICE backpacks are Rucksacks that MANNYYYYYY of the soldiers in vietnam had. Here are some pictures:

The ALICE gear didn't enter Vietnam until after 1973. It was still being developed for the the majority of the war, it's initial issue was designated LLCE. It wasn't called ALICE until 1974.
