The Italian Army (Italian: Esercito Italiano) is the land-based component of the Italian Armed Forces of the Italian Republic. The army's history dates back to the unification of Italy in the 1850s and 1860s. The army fought in colonial engagements in China, Libya, Northern Italy against the Austro-Hungarian Empire during World War I, Abyssinia before World War II and in World War II in Albania, Greece, North Africa, Russia and Italy itself. During the Cold War, the army prepared itself to defend against a Warsaw Pact invasion from the east. Since the end of the Cold War, the army has seen extensive peacekeeping service and combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Its best-known combat vehicles are the Dardo infantry fighting vehicle, the Centauro tank destroyer and the Ariete tank and among its aircraft the Mangusta attack helicopter, recently deployed in UN missions. The headquarters of the Army General Staff are located in Rome, at the back of the Presidential Palace. The army is an all-volunteer force of active-duty personnel.
MOLLE (pronounced /ˈmɒl.liː/, similar in pronunciation to the name Molly) is an acronym for Modular Lightweight Load-carrying Equipment. It is used to define the current generation of load-bearing equipment and backpacks used by a number of NATO armed forces, especially the British Army and the United States Army.
The Italian Army MOLLE Assault pack features a carry and emergency evacuation handle.
The back is molded to offer the best comfort to the user, shoulder straps are thickly padded and adjustable with straps and fastex buckles. The large main compartment is divided internally at one third by a drawstring. You can access to the bottom of the pack by an external zipper.
A waterproof nylon cover is stored in a pocket on the back of the top lid.
Two detachable pockets with shoulder straps are located on the sides of the backpack. These two pockets can be detached from the whole backpack with two zips.
By detaching these two pockets and assembling them together you get a third auxiliary backpack.
