All Bundeswehr participants are required to have a military issue compass that reads in mils and has a 6400 mil scale.

The dead correct compass for West German troops at East Wind is the BREITHAUPT KASSEL military compass NSN number 6605-12-135-2210 or 6605-12-123-986 which is the same thing but with tritium illumination. These compasses can be found with a little persistence on Ebay, Ebay.co.uk and Ebay.de They are very nice compasses but we recognize that they are at times a bit hard to get.

We will not accept ANY non-issue commercial or reproduction compasses.
