Country of Origin: East Germany
Utilized by the East German People's Army (Nationale Volksarmee), the Struchmuster or "raindrop" pattern was first developed as the standard issue cammies in 1965 by some godless Eastern Bloc commies. This interesting Warsaw Pact pattern was noted to have found it's way to Africa through the Soviet support of various communist anti-colonial forces. Ironically, this would lead to the uniform being observed as used by the Rhodesian Selous Scouts in "pseudo-ops" as they blended in with these forces.
These little pouches measure 6x7x5" overall and were designed with three internal compartments for the various East German anti-personnel grenades issued during the Cold War. Given that most of us peons are not allowed to carry around anti-personnel grenades, we've found that they actually also fit up to 9 stripper clips of 7.62x39mm. This makes it ideal for the "Innawoods" types rockin' their SKS rifles.
