The Steel Helmet.

M35, M40 and M42 helmets are are great for this impression. Then to top it off, apply mud or add a Type II Helmet Cover over the top.

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.

Dot 44 Tunic.

The Erbsentarn Tunic, or Dot44, is being worn with a Wool Tunic and Service Shirt underneath. This is very common with late war Waffen-SS units. It is not rare to find a wool tunic worn with Dot44 trousers.

Belt & Kit.

As you can see the soldier is wearing standard rifleman kit. important items here for eating, hydration and, should it rain, waterproofing.

Dot 44 Trousers.

The Erbsentarn Trousers are being worn here. This is very common with late war Waffen-SS units although it is not rare to see wool trousers with a Dot 44 Tunic.


Here you can see that the soldier is wearing Ankle Boots and Gaiters. It is not uncommon to see Jackboots even this late in the war.

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.
