when italians deployed to afghanistan they initially had the ap98 body armour (nicknamed the turtle) http://www.esercito.difesa.it/Equipaggiamenti/armi_materiali_mezzi/materiali/individuali/nbc/Pagine/GiubbettoAntiproiettileAP98.aspx
Since it wasn't PALS capable the Afghan came to rescue and started making these kits. Note they were only made this way, in Od green with a standard set of pouches (i was told it costed about 90$).
note the inside is sized for the ap98 soft armor which is one piece jointed at right shoulder
neck area with zip for neck protector and quick ditch mechanism
spare pouches and neck protector
these were superseded in 2010 with new issued models.
he also gave me one of his old uniforms. this is a vegetato jacket (italian issue, romanian made ) modified with a lot of velcro. also his helmet cover.
