The USSR during the first time of the conflict in Afghanistan was faced with the fact that the equipment of the Soviet soldier practically did not change since the end of the Great Patriotic War. The classic leather Webbing System and the soldier's belt with pouches for two grenades were very outdated and did not meet the requirements of the Soviet military. But in the first clashes with the Mujahideen, Soviet soldiers-internationalists captured vests, which forced the Soviet military to think about creating its own analogue for the needs of Soviet Army. In the middle of the Afghan War, the USSR established the production of its own chestrig "Poyas-A"(Belt-A), which could be equipped with a bandolier "Poyas-B"(Belt-B) that could accommodate a large number of VOG shots for an under-barrel grenade launcher GP-25.
The bandolier "Poyas-B" has 10 closed pouches for VOG shots for the GP-25 grenade launchers, the belt has a cloth tie, and on the upper part of the bandolier there are D-rings for integration into the chestrig "Poyas-A".
This chestrig is a replica with fully preserved functionality of the original, perfect not only for use for its intended purpose as vest for mags and grenades, but also for the reconstruction of the OKSVA or the Soviet Army , or the Cold War and subsequent post-Soviet conflicts.
