The Steel Helmet.

The M38 Jump Helmet is worn here. Later in the war it was quite common to see M40 and M42 helmets being worn. You can add a rubber inner tube band, or net for foliage.

Primary Weapon.

This soldier is armed with the Karabiner 98 Kurtz, or Kar98k, as his primary weapon. We encourage all of you to use bolt action rifles as it enhances gameplay.

Jump Smock.

This is the Type II jump smock, in grunmeliert fabric. It was not rare to see this and Splinter-B Type II smocks side by side early in the war. This Smock is typically worn over the Fliegerbluse with Luftwaffe insignia proudly on display.

Belt & Kit.
As you can see the soldier is wearing standard rifleman kit. important items here for eating, hydration and, should it rain, waterproofing.
(Note the Falschirmjager specific and he is wearing K98 bandolier and gas mask bag.)

Wool Jump Trouser.

Unique to the paratroopers, the M38 Jump Trousers are a status symbol. They have several additional pockets that served for early internal knee-pads and a combined pocket for gravity knife.


This paratrooper is wearing the 1st Pattern Jump boots. You will see these in service with the 2nd Pattern and, in some cases, Low boots.

What about a sidearm?

If you limit your rifles to under 370fps / 1.27j you wont need a side arm, and this will allow you to storm enemy positions up close an personal. A rubber bayonet is far more effective than your rifle at such close quarters.

Can I use Officer kit? ?
We would NOT recommend coming to an event as an Officer or NCO. These roles are reserved for crew and people in command appointments.
