Default Body Armor

Hey guys, new to this site. Not a weapons post, but I didn’t know where else to put this. Can anyone tell me what kind of body armor this is or what it’s based off of? I’ve been looking but can’t find out. Thanks in advance and looking forward to conversations in the future!

Not sure it's real, looks like it's from a game. You have any real photos?

I notice it has buckeled straps on the shoulders? It kind of resembles 1980's Russian armor.

It's probably not an exact clone of any particular plate carrier, but an amalgam of whatever the game designer thought looked cool.

Several similar ones on this page.

Not real.

Guy is carrying a Chinese Ak without a magazine and there's no mag pouches.

Thanks for the replies. Pretty sure it’s from a video game. I’d assumed it wasn’t real or an exact copied design, I was mostly just looking for something similar.

Video game stuff is not real life stuff.

If thats the case then its a simple plate carrier of one brand or another, choice is yours to decide which one suits your needs the best, just make sure it will hold the plate inserts that you plan to use.

Speaking of fantasy, I loved seeing that South African mag vest in the recent Mad Max Fury Road.
