    For interest Lars, how much does the vest weigh.
    I it's present condition i would say 2,5-3 kg or so. I am sure with the padding it would have been heavier.

    Regards, Lars

    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    They were usually used by Troops carrying out an assault , once that was done or at the earliest opportunity the body armour was taken off !!

    Hi Lars,
    I think the SN-42 was rebuilt after the war. I do not know if the Red Army to keep the armor long after the war.
