This doesn't excuse the sheer lack of utility and functionality in this product, could have a heavy level of protection AND MOLLE etc.IA requirement is for CT ops which mostly involves close in fire fights without any external fire power support. Eg CASO cordon and search ops.
While the pics involving foreign forces you posted are geared for ops which involves medium range engagement while being supported by heavy calibre firepower. They don't involve CASO , they raze the location with heavy fire power before moving in.
So one cannot compare the requirements of IA and foreign forces with regard to body armour because the fighting tactics are different .
The foreign forces are fighting in foreign lands they don't give a damn about collateral damage.
While IA is fighting in own country so have to close in to avoid collateral damage and also catch any pigs alive if necessary for intelligence.
