In 1985, the USSR received bulletproof vests 6B4, as personal protective equipment for the guard and security service. Bulletproof vests 6B4 were the most successful of the entire line of Soviet bulletproof vests, but at the same time the most expensive, the price of one vest reached 4-6 thousand Soviet rubles (with an average salary of a Soviet citizen of 150-200 rubles).

The vest was used in all branches of the Soviet Army during the Afghan War of 1979-1989 and by Russian Troops during the First Chechen War. According to the order of the Russian Defense Minister, the 6B4 bulletproof vests were withdrawn from service in 2000, and mass production was transferred to the more advanced 6B5 vests.
