First up is a flak vest made by the company "Cassoni." I've heard that this company eventually turned into "Sistema Compositi" but gear with Cassoni tags stops turning our around the early 90s. They also made helmets and tactical gear (some of which I will post later). To the best of my knowledge, this vest was exclusively used by the Col Moschin in Somalia.
As you can see, it has the British style rubber shoulder pads, and the velcro opening. Here are some pics of it in use. Some of these pictures show the Cassoni load bearing vest being worn over it.
