    Hehehe, it looks like one isn't it? (especially those mag pouches) but in fact it is russian one, however I have forgotten its designation.

    Are you absolutely sure of that? I would tend to doubt it, for several reasons.

    The main one being, that funny pouch shape (with the flap at an angle) is what you get when you cram an AKM-type 7,62 mag in a pouch that wasn't designed for it; and any Russian vest can swallow up that type of mag without getting deformed the least.

    Second, although I can think of two Russian vests whose configuration could match this one, none of them has pouches that close this way (this kind of flap, similar to that used by the American TLBV, is actually very "un-Russian-like": I don't know any single Russian vest using it. Russian vests tend to favour looong flaps with a simple velcro closure).

    Third, the camo doesn't seem like a Russian one to me. Unless it is some лес made to look funny by the lighting (which I will admit IS a possibility).

    The picture is a little dark, but the pouch is not deformed, it is shaped like that.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but is that the ABL flying test bed the Soviet Union was using in the 80s? Why in the world would Russia want to resurrect that project, the entire concept imo is retarded and the Americans were right to scrap their 2nd test-bed and put the brakes on the project.

    I am not sure for 100%, I am admiting it, yet, camo pattern looks more or less like лес or other "look-alike". I just wonder why he would make problem for himself and order something from Serbia if he can get ready available eq. manufactured in Russia.

    "Second, although I can think of two Russian vests whose configuration could match this one" - I know what types You have in mind.

    " (...) is actually very "un-Russian-like" - It depends, some more modern ones has such element, at least I saw something in similiar fashion.

    "Russian vests tend to favour looong flaps with a simple velcro closure" - good point, and that's a fact.

    As you can see, you can attach a radio pouch and grenade pouches at the same positions he has them at. If this is not the same vest he is using then it is very similar at least.
    You see 1911, after looking on that picture I am going to agree with You. That's interesting really.

    Edit. Russian soldiers tend to use RPK-74 mags (if They have chance) it is common practice from the time of Afgan, maybe such mags suit that pouches better? however vests such as M23 have pouches in which RPK-74 mags can fit rather well.

    Hehe no, no Sousuke that man is Анатолий Вячеславович Лебедь here is article about him (worth checking, he is real hero) : http://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Лебедь,...ич

    He was named of Hero of Russian Federation, fought in Afgan, Chcechenija, Dagestan, Osetija, he lost his foot but returned to duty. Saved a life of a soldier by using his own body as a shield to protect him from grenade blast among other great deeds.
