East German Camo: Militaria | eBay
This is required equipment for East German Motor Rifles participants. The East German web gear is very minimalist and hence easy to live in. The pouches should have grey webbing as well as this denotes the 2nd generation. One exception is the shovel pouch since the standard Motor Rifle versions are much harder to find, the 2nd generation versions for Engineers and Paratroopers are much more common.
The fighting complex for the East German Army is a simple kit to put together. The 2nd Generation web gear relied simply on sliding loops onto a belt and letting gravity do the rest. To put together your fighting complex start with the belt. The buckle and belt attach by weaving the belt into the buckle with the excess then back out in the opposite direction. This can be hard if the belt is extra stiff. Once complete the buckle, upright in the correct position, will be on the right hand side with the attachment on your left hand side.
Threading your pouches on from the left hand side, start with the ammunition pouch. You can use with the straight or curved versions as long as they have the grey straps and no side pocket. Once the belt is through both loops, slide it all the way over to where it would sit on your front right side when worn. Next slide on the shovel and carrier, this item would sit on your backside of your right hip.
The third piece of gear will be the canteen with the cover, canteen and cup; this should slide all the way to sit on your backside of your left hip. The last piece will be the bayonet, slide this item in so that it sits almost exactly opposite of the magazine pouch. One of the final pieces of the puzzle is the Y-straps or suspenders.
This can be confusing for many as they are very basic, along with their attachment. Starting at the rear, attach the suspenders at the center of the rear of the belt following the line of your spine.
The hook on the rear should sit above the belt with the extra length of strap and metal ring going behind and under the belt then back to attach to the hook. You should then adjust the Y-straps so that the part where the three sections come together sit in the center of your back as well the double d-rings should sit just below your shoulders.
The double d-rings play a important part as they are the attachment points for the assault packs. The front straps for the suspenders needs to be routed over your shoulders with the right hand side being attached between the magazine pouch straps and the left hand side attached right beside the bayonet. The second set of straps on the front with the d-ring is to be used when wearing the assault pack.
What constitutes a complete set? The bayonet needs to be one of two types, the 2nd or 3rd Generation. Be sure to inspect, if possible, the leather attachment loop as they crack and fail with age. If possible, try and find a carrier with grey webbing. East German canteens are very common still but are slowly becoming more expensive.
The 4-cell AK magazine pouch are the second most common East German item on the market. Retrieved from " http: Navigation menu Personal tools Create account Log in.
