    I've found here in Italy this not-so-nice plate carrier that was told me it's afghan made.
    No label inside , it fits Medium SAPIs.

    It is a great find thanks for posting! I will also add that the CNP-A NIU insignia on the man at left is extremely rare. Very hard to find photographs of the patch in-wear and even harder (much harder) to find the patch itself!!
