This is required equipment for NATO West German Bundeswehr participants.


Each Bundeswehr attendee must have a single German Flectarn shelter half section complete with 4 pole sections and 4 stakes. This allows 2 Bunsdeswehr soldiers to make a complete tent. Your shelter half must be original German issue. No other tent or shelter half is acceptable.

  • Obviously, you may choose to bring a complete tent of your own but at a minimum we want you to have a single section.
  • Make sure that your section is waterproof! Test it before you deploy to East Wind and if you are not 100% satisfied that it will keep you dry then take the time to rub it down with candle wax and then iron it with a warm iron.
  • When shopping for these overseas or on you should use the search terms "BW Zelt"
