Very, very early west German gasmask with container. As the rubber body of the mask is black, it seem´s not like the M65, its seem´s like a called "Karetta Maske ". issued ~1960.
See:
http://www.gasmasks.net/
Filter should be a M62 mask filter, issued 1962.

Very Nice Norge, must have taken a long time to get all 3 together, I like the Desert Storm set up, I quite like the Chocolate Chip desert camouflage.

Heres my latest buy; its the pattern of East German Uniform that was never introduced due to the wall coming down in '89.
Its made in the 1st Quater of 1989 (Jan, Feb, March.)(I was born Jan '89 so its as old as me :shock: ). They had a whole new uniform and webbing and were making it ready for the change over so its all pretty much unused... the webbing is 'influenced' by British '58 webbing and the Uniform is 'influenced' by the American BDU (The cut is quite similar)

Excuse the pic... my cell phone doesn't like the darkness when taking pics.

I'll hopfully get some pics of mine up tomorrow as its all done... just need a gun (have to be registered as an airsofter to buy them but have to play at a site a few times to get registered :x So until I get some games under my belt using rented guns, I can't buy one... how dumb is that?)

Yep thats the stuff, doesn't really look that effective does it? I've yet to try it out.

Also known as Strichtarn.

Here comes the boring part :lol: (I've done quite a lot of research and reading on it)

There were 4 pattern of Felduniform

1960's Exposed Buttons on arms, 2 pockets on chest, 2 on arms, Rank on shoulder boards
1970's Covered Buttons on arms, 2 pockets on chest, 2 on arms, Rank on shoulder boards
1980's Covered Buttons on arms, 2 Pockets on chest, 2 slit pockets near the waist, 2 on arms, Rank on shoulder boards
1990's Style similar cut to US BDU's, one rank patch on left arm. (Never issued)

The Green webbing is, the UTV (Universale Tragevorrichtung), I'm just waiting on the Magazine pouch, Makarov pistol holser and rank patch to come from Berlin then thats unissed uniform is completed :mrgreen: ... the boots that were to be introduced were lace up and are hard to find and thus expensive as they are often marketed as Falschimjaeger boots. So will have to do with British assault boots. The previous boots were close to jackboots, high legged no laces.

But with Glasnot and prestorika the whole thing crumbled and it was never used... great for me as its still about in reasonable number and still pretty cheap :D

Sorry to have bored you so much with that but prehaps some of will find it interesting?
