Since we now know you're out there, its time for our own little Einigkeit! This is, as the title suggests, going to be a home for all the H&Ks and Flecktarn to frolic freely! (von Trapp style)
So, without further ado, I shall kick things off. My stuff is a serious work-in-progress, as I've spent most of my efforts ensuring that my mainstay coyote brown battle rattle is in perfect order. I have chosen to loosely follow the Fallschirmjäger EGB-Kräfte kit, which includes a wide mixture of gear color and orientation. The research I've done indicates that in the Fallschirmjäger batallions a lot of the equipment ends up being personal purchase. This means anything from Flecktarn to Tropentarn to Multicam to Black to Green to Khaki to whateverthefuckelse. A lot of the gear wank for my loadout comes from two videos that come directly from the Bundeswehr's Youtube Channel.
So, the gear. I've gone with, which appears in both videos, is a Polish (Doctor Mervin) made replica of the gen. 3 Lindnerhof Taktik plate carrier. I've also gone with, as depicted, a MICH2001 helmet. I do not have any NV mount, as the videos and photos I've seen show that they will actually not wear the NV mounts if they aren't planning to even use NV, and they use the LUCIE night vision system, which has it's own proprietary mounts. A repro of the mount can be had from a Ukrainian company, but I have yet to order it. I also have yet to order any pouches. Most of the repro's I've seen look lame and disgusting, and I have yet to pull the trigger on a Lindnerhof order.
As I update and begin to advance the kit, I shall continue to update this thread. In the meantime, all you other Fleck-tards come out of the woodwork and post your Deutsche Scheiße right here!
