    Greetings,

    Please I am really desperate. Anyone recognizing these bulletproof vests used by Czechoslovakian/Czech troops in Yugoslavia in UNPROFOR? Only what I know is that it should be some Israeli vests... but that is all what i know. I think they were used in Gulf War too... Thank you very much!

    I'm sorry that I can't help you with the vests, but I can thank you for the interesting picture Very Happy I've never seen a UN badge with a national flag on it before! I can not imagine how rare those badges are.

    Ahoj,

    There are at least 2 different vests used by Czechoslovak guys on photos you posted. Both can be seen on photo of 3 guys in front of UN van.

    I think that in gulf war was another vest. Here is scan of some army magazine from that times. You can see that the Gulf war vest was Irisch Highmark Style HM/3.

    Viac toho neviem, snažil som sa ich zohnať aj ja :-)

    Díky mockrát! Slyšel jsem že jsou nesehnatelný. Já to nahradil dočasně britskou UN MK2. Ale I tak... Díky za info! Díky!

    The one with the opening down the front is made by an Israeli company. I have one at home and can post a picture if you like. It was used by Australia a great deal. The other one was used by other countries as well. I have pictures of other countries using it if you think that will help. My suspicion is that it is also Israeli though. Let me know.
