The German Armed Forces (Wehrmacht) in World War Two was made up from several services while each of the services had their own specialized equipment most of the webbing and equipment was the same design throughout all the branch of services. The colour of the webbing changed between some of the services like the Luftwaffe (Airforce) started off with blue canvas webbing.
