    looks like a m203 vest modified with the front part of an israeli ephod webbing....

    which should be consistent for a late 80's delta force soldier.

    By the design and materials used, surely was manufactured in the US. T.G. Faust maker but just my two cents.

    Col Kurtz, as I remember, you have almost the similar vest in your collection made by TG Faust, pouches are seems to be the same.

    Right, as you can see the concept is very similiar. Straps are attached to the vest with release side buckles, flap pockets are equal, the platform where the pouches are located. But without a tag/label, all these are guesses..

    One thing I have learned is that you are pretty up to speed on hardware like this so your two cents speak loudly!
