    NICE! I haven't seen these out on the market, but I haven't been looking. Hopefully they are getting rid of a pile of them because I for sure would like to have one.

    After you get a couple with hard plates you think of covers only as a dream. Especially when you find out how much they cost to ship Very Happy I just received Belgian and Yugoslav frag vest with soft inserts only and I had to trade an extra uniform just to cover the postage costs. Ouch!

    Hi Gary,
    During the Gulf War, some soldiers were sent 1 RE in the combat units of the legion Wink
    To the base, the 1 RE is a administrative regiment of the Foreign Legion. During war, he sends reinforcements in the combat units.
    Sorry my bad english, I hope you understand Embarassed
