  1. Hi Clive! Thank you for your detailled answer! I will try to have a look for some different Pics where i can also verify the NSN´s --------------- 12x12 Shelter Lightweight?! Never seen - is ist an old version with thinner Canvas, or a new one wich is just in Service? --------------- As i have a Penthouse Tent from an FV, (might be from an FV432 command post)but no Poles and Frames at all - - Have you ever seen an end section to close the tent when the FV is dismoutet? I seen that the FV itself is the last "frame", but maybe the tent can also be errectet freest
  2. Hi! Ok, mayby to many and complicated questions to describe them proper for my poor english.... What I think - You may have a NSN for the hole Tent/Shelter in complete ... and also you will have a NSN for the single parts... -Wall and Roof Section -End Section -Brackets -Pins ........... BUT! - There is not only one type of end section, there are mayby 5 to 10 different all together marked with a specific name(and NSN), as GS, Catering, Passageway.... And you may also have different MK´s as you may have an old Catering section maybe called MK1 and an improved one
  3. Hi Mates! Got some Questions about the 12x12 i cant come along wit an answer... In MY oppinion the Main Sections and the End Sections MUST be "counted" in different ways, and you can´t just say it is a MK1,2 or 3 Tent, right??? Maybe someon can count the different end sections for me first? Types i know: MK1: GS (MK1?) - Just a straight wood toggled openening in the Middle from bottom to top MK1: Passageway - rollup square opening with lashes on outside to connect a "Tunnel", no mozzie net and no zipper? END SECTION MK1 WITH PASSAGEWAY ATTACHMENT 8340-9
  4. Maybe like this?!? http://www.scale87.de/kette_uk/FV432/images/432-gbo1.jpg I hope there are not to many different versions... I must unpack it and look if i find some Infos stamped on it....
  5. Hi Andy! Something like this... http://www.military-today.com/apc/fv105_sultan_images.htm On the Backside Pic you can see the tubes for the tent, but i am sure i have somewhen seen an FV with an ready fixed frame on the back.... And i forgot to write -Lucky as i am: I GOT THE TENT FLY!!! i am only missing the Frame, an END SECTION (i dont know if it exists at all, as on the end normaly there is the FV) and the technical infos! :-) sorry - my english is getting a bit rusty... AAAAH - Found it...... In the link Nr.4: http://www.hmvf.co.uk/pdf/SHELTERS.pdf On P
  6. Hi! Thanks for your help, but no - Both Tents, the small one that fits on the side and the 9x9 i know very good, but thats not what i mean... The tent i look for details is - i am pretty sure - an "Command Post Role" tent (dont know if it is the right name...), and the first row of the tent Tubes are permanently fixed on the back of the fighting Vehicle.... Cheers Gung
  7. Hi! Been a while since i was here.... Now i got a question for what i think is an attachable Tent for a CVRT... Not this small 4 Persons side-Shelter, i mean this quite large Tent on the Back called "Penthouse"?!? Must look like a Narrow 12x12... Has anybody of you Pic´s and/or sizes of the Tent set up and the Parts? Means angle of the brackets Length of the tubes Parts list Additional parts... Is there an end section, or is it always open on one side as it is fixed to the vehicle? Thanks for your Help! Gung
  8. Hi all! http://www.ebay.de/itm/Glencoe-8x8-NVA-DDR-Bundeswehr-BW-Allrad-Iltis-Munga-Wolf-G-Model-/270941760822?pt=Automobile&hash=item3f15632d36 First time i recognised this brand... was this brand/model in MOD service ever? Looks like a real funmobil! Cheers Gung
  9. Hi! Have a look on this brilliant website: http://www.panzerbaer.de/helper/bw_lkw_02t_gl-a.htm Look for the "LKW 2T" - the description for the Mog in the Bundeswehr! Best regards Gung
  10. Here U Go! http://hmvf.co.uk/forumvb/showthread.php?12834-unknown-aluminium-frame Cheers Bastian
  11. Hi Tony! The connectors i got and Piet got fit over the tubes and are stronger than the connectors of the 12x12 and 9x9 tent, but the tent connectors will fit inside! only problem can be the angle, as i dont know, if it is the same, so u will get problems fitting the sides proper... i dont even know if my connectors are the same as the ones of the 18x24 tent, as they are also the stronger types! i will post if i can test the normal ones against the stronger connectors! and - can u provide a picture of the original pack? i got one - heavy wit a lot of aluminium joined to the canvas...
  12. Good afternoon! Can someone tell me how the proper Groundsheet for the newest 12x12 variant looks like, means the colour and material?! is it in one piece, or two? And what are the 2 x 3 Ventilation openings for? there is 2 small diameter ones, and 1 larger diameter one, and this 2 times on one side of the tent... only warm air? or nbc application? cheers bastian
  13. Perfect Piet! Thank You Mate! The only Question.... What is the official name of this Shelter? Does anybody knows? And as the drawing shows A bit different frame - what is this for - a larger container shelter? bastian
  14. Can someone provide me the nsn for the connectors? or pictures?
  15. Hej Piet! My pieces come together..... Can u provide me a picture of the naked frame? and can u tell me if your shelter has also the tubes on the bottom numbered 9 and 5 ? Cheers bastian
