Default Iraqi Army Camo Flak Jacket.

Here is a nice Iraqi flak vest ive managed to find, not sure if its British DPM or an Iraqi pattern. To the inside can be found an Arabic instruction label

It does appear to be an Iraqi flak jacket possibly made by "Tetranike Armor Systems".

They are pretty difficult to find. I've not seen many show up over the years. It's really nice that you were able to locate one.

I believe they were used by Iraqi forces in limited numbers during the 1991 Gulf War, and they were still around with Iraqi forces during the 2003 Gulf War.

Regards,

Ben
