    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. [​IMG]

    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.
    [​IMG]

    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 2: Uniform Accessories:

    Berets:

    Infantry: Green

    Fallschirmjäger: Red

    Panzer troops, Former military, or field news staff: Black

    Light red (pink): some combat support troops, such as artillery , army air defense , pioneers , NBC, PSYOPS , replenishment, logistics, repair, Military Police , Signal Corps Electronic Warfare, Signal Corps

    Royal Blue: Medical Corps

    Navy Blue: Soldiers of the three cadet battalions ( Munster , Hammelburg , Idar-Oberstein ), each with the cap badge of the branch of service they planned for, soldiers of the Franco-German Brigade and soldiers of the Marine Protection Force and the physical protection of Air Force Regiment

    Headwear:

    M56 steel helmet used from 1956 to 1992:

    M92 combat helmet:

    Aramid helmet first introduced in 1992, uses fleck cover.

    Summer field cap:

    Winter Field Cap:

    Can be worn as shown or like an ushnaka.

    Part 3: Gear

    Standard infantry will most commonly use a system similar to ALICE webbing:
    [​IMG]

    Although an SAAV is a little more practical and is still used:
    [​IMG]

    Mehler PC's also work
    [​IMG]

    And under these, a flak vest is worn
    [​IMG]

    For boots, try these:
    [​IMG]

    And these for kneepads, just altas will work:
    [​IMG]
    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.

    [​IMG]
    G36

    G36K (top)
    G36c (bottom)

    For loadouts from the 70's to the late 90's, try the G3
    [​IMG]

    Some forces use the MP7:
    [​IMG]

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

    P8 (USP):

    G23 (AWM, AWP, L96)

    Good job Jack. Looks about right, you put a whole lot of effort into it.

    Awesome guide.. Is the PSG-1 really not used by German Armed Forces? As far as I know it's only used by special operations units.

    I didn't add most of the SF stuff in there. Yeah, I'm pretty sure at least someone uses it.

    I'd add a MICH chinstrap or an SDS 3 pt. chinstrap, it would look closer to the actual German helmets.

    This is great, thanks Fysh. I'd love to make a German loadout since I have both a G36C and a G3.
