    some of my Austro-Camo stuff

    Post by Michi on Sun Jan 29, 2017 5:41 pm

    here are pictures of some of my Austrian Camoflage stuff.
    I've been now the 26th year in the Austrian Army, BUT I have never heard of Erbsen-Tarn/Erbsenmuster (~ pea-pattern).
    Only Fleckerlteppich (~ rag rug) or K 4/K IV

    Let's start with the smaller items:
    (items are upgraded for the use with KAZ 1 / KAZ 2 and KAZ 3 of the Kampfanzug 75 and used between 1994-2001/03)


    ABC-Schutzmaskentasche (~ Gasmask Bag) & Feldflaschenhülle (~ Canteen Cover) & Feldspatenhülle (~ Shovel Cover)



    Feldspatenhülle (~ Shovel Cover)







    Feldflaschenhülle (~ Canteen Cover)





    ABC-Schutzmaskentasche (~ Gasmask Bag)







    Schlafsack, hier als Alpinschlafsack (~ sleeping bag, here in the version for mountain troops)
    sleeping bag cover filled with leaves or other soft materials, could be used as pillow








    here you can see the isolation






    it's my first posting; so I hope it works.

    Nice batch of Austrian stuff. Good to see such mint pieces.
    Definitely not so easy any more to find them in this condition, even in Austria.

    as I did a very good job (according my superiors) in surroundings of difficulties (strict orders, sometimes contradicting) without being trained for and even far away from the prescribed rank, I  got a very nice thank-you gift after finishing the job:

    Welcome to the forum! You have some of the nicest condition pieces out there! And I say this as someone who has seen a lot of pieces in my years Smile Not as much as you, but my first piece was purchased in 1991. So I've got 26 years of being in love with Austrian stuff. My daily shoes are M75 boots (I am on my third pair) Wink

    I really like the MOLLE modifications to the shovel and canteen covers. Do you know who made those modifications? I have not seen them before.

    I love your Krawatte Very Happy

    I had and still have very good contacts (even in time of being a recruit(!!!) back then) to our military tailors and military shoemakers in the barracks & and air bases l've been soldiering.
    So the modifications were done in local military tailor shop.

    The idea of this tie was not done by my superiors, as they were looking for a special gift, but didn't know what kind of. It was the idea of a military tailor who knew my preferences for the Fleckerlteppich.
