You are bidding on a SUPERB and VERY RARE example of a WW2 German Wehrmacht TROPICAL Gefechtsgepäck Combat Assault Pack A-Frame!
The combat assault A-frame packs were designed for wear with the combat Y-straps, on their development in April 1939, and were utilized by assault troops to lighten their load and still carry necessary items into battle. The assault packs were issued with a separate, small, removable bag that would be strapped to the frame and was designed to carry the K98 rifle cleaning kit, necessary underclothing and toiletries, rations and eating utensils. The assault pack was also designed to have the mess kit and quarter shelter/poncho strapped to the frame giving personnel the capability to carry all the basic necessities into battle.
Made of Canvas Webbing with steel fittings, this Tropical A-Frame is in EXCELLENT UN-ISSUED condition! Some slight marks and wear from storage, but nothing that detracts. Features a prominent manufacture stamp with the date of 1942. Steel fittings are marked, “LUX”. No tears rips, or damage! A VERY NICE example, it would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

——————- ABOUT ME —————–
Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
