WWII GERMAN HEER ARMY M1943 M43 WOOL COMBAT FIELD TUNIC. The M40 uniform was the first design change in the standard army uniform. It differed from the M36 only in the substitution of feldgrau for the bottle green collar and shoulder straps, which began to be phased out in 1938/39, though most combat examples show this variation appearing in 1940, hence the unofficial M40 pattern.
The troops liked the older green collars, and M40 (and later) tunics modified with salvaged M36 collars or bottle-green collar overlays are not uncommon. The M43 is essentially an M40/41 tunic, but with pleats removed from all the pockets to save on materials and production time.
