Just need to know if the DAK Gebirgsjager wore the tall desert boots or the standard Gebirgsjager mountain boot.
Please let me know,
GJ

Thanks guys.
pzrwest, two mountain troop units were with the DAK. 2nd Kompanie Sonderverband 288 and Gebirgsjäger Regiment 756.
ActionMan,Are BBI figs any better researched than DML or DID? I do not collect them so I do not know.

I'm sorry, I really can't tell you. This is only my second DAK, the first was put together from loose parts. I honestly don't know enough about the DAK to be able to say which is better. The quality of the parts seems better than overall DML quality though.

Grüß Di' Wüstegebirgsjägers,

The two Gebirgsjäger units mentioned above, tended to wear the standard leather mountain boot...though some photos also show both types of tropical boots being worn occasionally.

The 2nd. Gebirgsjäger Kompanie/Sonderverband 288 wore Luftwaffe Tropical Pants with the thigh pocket and the Army Tropical Tunic.

Image

Geb.Jäg.Rgt. 756 wore the Army Tropical Breeches with mountain boots and knee length Wickelgamaschen (puttees) and the Army Tropical Tunic.

Image

Both units wore the Tropical field cap with metal Edelweiss and the sleeve Edelweiss on dark greeen background.
