    Iraqi 6 Color Armor

    Post by nkomo on Sat Feb 04, 2017 12:28 am

     Picked this armor up recently from Ebay. It is missing one of the side fasteners, but didn't have an example like this in my collection.

     Seems to be similar to other examples of Iraqi Police armor I have seen in the past, but was told this is Iraqi Army or Iraqi Civil Defense Corps.

     Front pocket looks to have been modified by cutting off the pocket flap and making a cut on the pocket.

     The armor inside is very light weight and I highly doubt it has much ballistic stopping capability.

     The inside writing is a name and part of it says "Ahmed".

    Arch - Great find. The Iraqi's used so much different gear, patterns, manufactures, etc kit like this is going to be turning up for years to come I believe.

    Thank you, sir. You are absolutely correct about the plethora of uniforms and gear used by the Iraqi Armed Forces. Many collectors walk right past items and have no idea what it is.
