Default German Armed Forces Loadout Guide

It has come to my attention that there are very few guides anywhere to make a Bundeswehr (German Armed Forces) Loadout. Here's my guide. Flecktarn any any vest will not cut it, you gotta have the right stuff. Keep in mind that this is fairly modernized loadout information, please don't ask for WWII information.
Part 1: The Uniform

Germany has used flecktarn since world war 2, but several variants have come and gone.

Early 1937 prototype: This is unacceptable for modern loadouts.

Eichenlaubmuster "Oak Leaf" Variant used in WW2. May be used in modern loadouts, but is still extremely incorrect. This camo is very rare. If you can find it DON'T use such a beauty for airsoft unless you plan to use it for an SS loadout.


Erbsenmuster "Pea Dot" Pattern. This is as close to modern camo as you can get without it being modern.


Modern Fleck from the 90's:

Part 3: Gear

Standard infantry will most commonly use a system similar to ALICE webbing:


Although an SAAV is a little more practical and is still used:


Mehler PC's also work


And under these, a flak vest is worn


For boots, try these:


And these for kneepads, just altas will work:

Just regular kneepads with fleck pattern on them, not the most important part of a loadout.

To get most of this, look at http://www.flecktarn.co.uk/index.php

Part 4: Guns

The main weapon used in the Bundeswehr is the H&K G36 and it's variants. A common misconception is that the full length G36 is called the G36e, but this is not the case. E stands for "export". The G36 most commonly used in the BW is just a regular G36.


G36


G36K (top)
G36c (bottom)

For loadouts from the 70's to the late 90's, try the G3


Some forces use the MP7:


Until it was replaced by the mp5, the uzi (MP2) was used by some forces:


MP5:


P8 (USP):


G23 (AWM, AWP, L96)


G82 (m82)


Ag36 grenade launcher for G36:
