    Still, no groin plates. Nevertheless, the new body armor looks much better than previous combat vests, which won't even stop grenade shrapnel. I wonder if these infantries are provided with level IV (or at least level III+) ballistic plates.

    Groin protection limits mobility which is why they are only really used for asymmetrical conflict.

    Here's the video

    What a stupid statement. While older vests like the 04 series were never exactly world class, they definitely provide a degree of protection against things such as grenade shrapnel. You act like the laws of physics work differently in China. :rolleyes:

    I seriously hope that they didnt really go back to epaulettes. One reason for the switch to collar insignia was because body armor and webbing would hide them.

    This clearly isn’t intended for front line wear. That leather belt.
    The button on the epaulets.
