OTV is one style of MOLLE vest (which is going the way of the dinosaurs, btw)

And how is it an "abnormal" MOLLE vest?

Depends on the user, I personnally prefer a plate carrier with MOLLE.

Edited an above response, ref gas masks.

LBVs are generally less popular now, but some people still prefer them. Depends what you're doing. If you need to keep you armor on while retaining the ability to ditch your load, you might have a MOLLE armor system on but still wear an LBV or harness on top of it; it's something occasionally seen with SF.

Depends how you play... If you're more "recon-style", you'll probably shoot less (so less space is needed for ammo) and will want to keep your setup light. An LBV could be a nice choice.

If you're more "assault", sometimes doing covering fire, going a bit less stealthy, etc... In short, more "grunt style" a PC can be better.

I've said CAN and COULD, since there isn't any rules on this... it's down to personal preference . An "assault" guy could still be able to play with only a blast belt, it may just not be the optimal setup. But just go with what you're confortable!

There's MOLLE LBVs too (ie., chest rigs or vests with MOLLE, which do not carry armor).

MOLLE is superior in that it lets you configure what pouches you'll carry and where they're located. Some LBVs are also specialized, such as riverine vests which incorporate flotation devices.

As for "Ideal" setups, it varies not only on individuals but also on what they want to accomplish. On most days I favor a PACA low profile armor with a plate carrier, it's very comfortable and light and nimble, but it severely limits how much MOLLE real estate I have. Using a similar setup with an RRV instead is a bit bulkier but allows me to carry a lot more pouches. A full armor system like the EPC+commurbund (or CIRAS) or my FSBE AAV provides a ton of MOLLE space, but are a lot bulkier.
