In addition, they seem to mix the camo of the armor. I've seen desert camo armors wore by the troops on the somalia mission (granted, camo doesn't really matter in this case). They seem to lack digital camo armor, most of the soldiers I've seen wore digital camo uniform and the old-style camo armor.I don't think they've standardized their body armour yet, probably trying out different kinds before they make a final decision. I've been very disappointed with the body armour seen issued to PLA troops eg the PLA SOF on the anti pirating mission in somalia. Seems to be very flimsy and not able to take ceramic plate inserts.
