In 1979, the government of Afghanistan, in accordance with the Treaty of Friendship, Good-Neighborliness and Cooperation of December 5, 1978, asked the USSR to send a Limited Contingent of Soviet Troops to Afghanistan, so the ten-year Afghan War of 1979-1989 began. Although the Soviet Army was well-trained and equipped, there were almost no bulletproof vests in the right quantity and quality in the Soviet Army, and the old 6B1 vest was not suitable for performing tasks to protect a soldier.
The 6B2 bulletproof vest was developed at the request of the USSR Ministry of Defense in 1980, after which it was supplied to the Soviet Army. The vest was used in all branches of the Soviet Army during the Afghan War of 1979-1989, and still remains in service in some post-Soviet states.
The bulletproof vest has an average area of protection, has a height adjustment in the shoulder section, is fastened on the user with Velcro (from which at first this bulletproof vest was mistakenly considered a Czech development).
1. Perfectly compatible with any type of equipment.
2. It was used in the Soviet Army since the beginning of the Afghan War.

4. Inserts in the bulletproof vest are purchased separately, not included in the kit.
