Overview

This is a premium asset that requires ownership of the Contact expansion pack.


Favoured by Russian Spetsnaz operatives for its light weight and modular setup, the Kipchak vest is a multipurpose harness suited for long distance patrols and reconnaissance missions behind enemy lines.

It weighs a "mass" of 30 and can store up to 160 units worth of ammunition/gear. Like the LBV Harness worn by their CSAT allies, the Kipchak does not have any plate inserts attached and provides absolutely no protection to either gunfire or explosives.

Identical to regular Kipchaks but contains extra straps/covers for the radio pouch.

Storage-wise, it has the same amount of "mass" capacity as regular Kipchak vests (160) and also weighs the same (30).

Trivia

  • In-game Kipchak vests are based on real-world "Smersh" chest rigs designed for use by Russian special operations and security forces.
    • The strapped radios are modelled after the "R-187-P1E" handheld radio designed by Angstrem, a Russian joint-stock company. The regular Kipchak has the basic variant attached while the Tactical Radio vest uses the ruggedised version with a bulkier frame.
