Smersh Vest

Many already know this mythical Smersh SPOSN that has crossed the ages and conflicts. Its origin comes from the first military brewing having appeared during the 2nd world war. At the base being a simple system of suspenders connected to a combat belt, it has evolved to become what it is today. Contrary to what one might think, the Smersh webbing is far from being outdated. A large number of Russian Spetsnaz use it for long-distance outdoor missions, such as reconnaissance. It is also a very popular system for snipers. The construction of that Smersh chest rig gives it an excellent load distribution that can relieve back pain and other discomforts that can arise when using a conventional plate carrier. It is also a preferred carrying system for those for whom wearing ballistic protection is not a priority, and for those for whom outdoor missions are an everyday occurrence.

Many versions of the Smersh SSO vest exist. Among them is the most basic kit of all adapted for the use of an AK74 or AK47, variants for scouts and snipers equipped with a VSS or SVD, or a more loaded version for machine gunners equipped with a PKM heavy machine gun. The latest versions of Smersh MOLLE are more practical than the versions with belt attachments. It is of course possible to use all the MOLLE poches of your Smersh tactical vest on other models, or conversely, to use some western pouches on your Smersh carrier.
All you have to do is choose the version that suits you best.
