Sorry I can't help, Spanish? I am your man but no idea with Arabic.


Flagged so it stays relevant though.

It says " To activate plastic explosive inside, pull cord on right side of vest

One size fits all
Good for one use only

You're not issued a new vest? (I know you'll be safe, but still! That's crap!) Bless you and thank you for doing a job I could never do.

Doesn't Google have an app where you take a picture and it translates the words for you?

Edit... It's a feature in the Google translate app.

I'm curious to what it says. Please post the translation.

I think the more pertinent question is: what was it doing at your work,and then why is the writing in arabic ? Those are 2 huge flags for me.

If it's a soft vest, I'd bet it's rated for hand gun calibers only. It's probably instructions or the rating of the vest, what it's made from, etc....

I can't read it, but in my experience:

Unless you have SAPI Plates for it, it's most likely only rated up to 9mm.

A fat bladed knife like a K-BAR will probably not pierce it, but a slim bladed knife like a bench-made auto-opener will penetrate.

The kuwait mission to the UN threw out its old stuff. I work in junk removal.

I asked several employees, they said sure keep it or toss it. So I kept it.

EDIT:
Yeah its a soft vest. Ok, so hand guns. Maybe I will just give it to a LEO friend I have.

They probably do give us our own stuff, I just dont know if we get to have something issued to us individually, or we share one when not on base.

I would rather have my own.

If nobody fluent in Arabic comes along shortly and If you have some technical literacy try this....

Google Translate can translate text in images through your phone's camera

Character recognition programs comes in handy for lots of stuff in a multilingual world.

Remember that is read from Right to Left... It is a "medium" in size and something to do with a sharp pointed tool. I'd opine that this is penetrable w/an Awl or similar type weapon.

Keep Your head down and Your powder dry...

namaste

P.S. Also if You NEED a real vest let Me know before You shove off and I can call the p.d.

This particular vest is a police issue vest meant to stop everything up to .454 casull.

The Arabic writing will have manufacturer info, licensing info, where the vest is going, and what organization will be using it. Stuff like this is tightly controlled in Saudi Arabia.

Not sure that's where it came from as it could just as easily be Yemenese or Jordanian police issue.
