Prussian field tent made on the basis of instructions from the Prussian Book. Written in the 18th century, it was describing how to conduct war campaigns.
It contains a wealth of information, from very general to small details.
Although that prussian tent was made according to the instructions in the Prussian military manual, it is also suitable for other periods, as similar designs were used at other times and in different armies.
As standard, the entrance is located on a flat triangular wall. Second entrance is possible as option an option.
However, you should then pay attention to the possibility of increased desertion among soldiers. Maybe that was the reason why original prussian field tent had only one entrance 😉
We also recommend equipping tents with lantern stands and metal lanterns, which will make it easier to find the tent in the dark at night.
You can find them in the section with such an assortment or by clicking here.
The Prussian field tent was designed for six soldiers with personal equipment. However, we recommend reducing the number of inhabitants to three for a reenactors who values comfort and the possibility of a mess in the tent.
