New Chinese Body Armor

It is based on their Protector line of body armor vest that had been around over a decade but this new version had probably borrowed many design features from US Interceptor design including the overlapping front, side adjustment strips, detachable throat and groin protector, more importantly, the hard plate pockets and MOLLE.

A note on the Chinese hard plate, since they don't have access to the material to make boron carbide ceramic, their higher-end plates use aluminum oxide ceramic but because the Chinese military is typically cheap-stick, most of their hard plates use ballistic steel, which is up to 3 times heavier than the ceramic plates.
