Luftwaffe Tropical Uniforms
In 1940, the Luftwaffe began to anticipate action in hotter climates and developed a distinctive tropical uniform for use by all personnel including pilots, groundcrew, flak personnel, field division troops and paratroopers.

This uniform is closely associated with the Hermann Göring Division and the Fallschirmjäger (paratroop) units operating in North Africa, Sicily, Italy, and other Mediterranean locales, although it was in fact used by all Luftwaffe personnel in those regions. The color of the new tropical uniforms was khaki-braun. In reality, this color encompassed a wide range from a fairly dark salmon-tan shade to a light tan-peach and then on to a sand yellow shade. This is one reason why even black-and-white photos of Luftwaffe personnel show a definite color shift between uniform items. The fabric seems to usually have been a high-grade cotton in the trousers and jacket, not artificial cotton or linen like in many Army tropicals, in a light weight 7-8 ounce twill.

You'll notice that our prices seem unbelievably low compared to our competitor's prices for Luftwaffe tropical uniforms. Even so, our quality is higher. Another example of the benefits of buying factory direct from Lost Battalions.
